R Question

Internal links in rmarkdown don't work

I use rmarkdown to render pdf documents. Now I want to add internal links in the texts.

In the helping pages of rmarkdown, it says an internal link is defined as:

See the [Introduction](#introduction).


When I Use e.g. the next code there should be two internal links: link1 and link2. Both don't link. Is there something obvious that I am doing wrong? Many thanks in advance!

# start

```{r results="asis",tidy=FALSE,eval=TRUE,echo=FALSE,message=FALSE, error=FALSE, warning=FALSE, comment = NA}

Answer

You're not setting the anchors correctly.

Try the following:

# start

```{r results="asis",tidy=FALSE,eval=TRUE}
cat("click here: [link1](#test1)")
```

click here: [link2](#test1)

\pagebreak

# test 3 {#test3}

\pagebreak

#test 2 {#test2}

\pagebreak

#test 1 {#test1}
