The wiki for "" at says:

Redmine assigns an anchor to each of those headings thus you can link to them with "#Heading", "#Subheading" and so forth.
You can add another anchor to a title : h3(#my_anchor). My title

But this leads to

<h3 id="my_anchor">My title<a href="#My_title">...</a>

and not to

<h3>My title<a href="#my_anchor">...</a>

It generates an id property not a link anchor.

I can't find this change in changelog or issues to explain why this change was made and how to transion to the new headings.

I have users with extensive documentation in the wiki pages using this kind of explicit anchor. Are they supposed to go manually rewrite each of those links or was this supposed to be handled during rake db:migrate or something? We are currently running redmine 3.2.7.
