Hi there,

Heading links used to appear when you hovered over a heading or sub-heading (as described in this article): https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/arcgis-storymaps/constituent-engagement/storymaps-heading-...

but they no longer seem to do so.  Has something changed?  Is there now a different way to obtain the link?

Many thanks,

Helen

Hi @OwenGeo ,

Argh, I'm so sorry, I've just realised that the story needs to be published in order to pick up the links! Sorted now, but I guess it would be great if it worked in edit mode too!

Best,

Helen

Hi @HelenCooper -- I'm seeing this working as expected in a bunch of stories that I just tested. Can you share a story where you aren't seeing this?

Please note, as mentioned in that blog, slideshows and map tours don't support this feature right now.

@HelenCooper - Ah ok -- glad you worked out what was going on. We haven't added those links to the builder yet just because there are so many other controls and buttons in builder. We are considering it for the future, but as you noted, currently the links are only when viewing the story.

Understood - I think this same issue has tripped me up before - if you're using the anchors to link from other locations within the same storymap you need to have a published version and an edited version open simultaneously to work.  For forgetful people like me having it available from the text pop-up menu would be fabulous!
