Inserting a link to a specific section of an article is fairly easy to do, though finding directions on how to do it is a bit difficult for some reason. Perhaps that's why this question comes up frequently.

The short answer is that you do it with a "#"

Here's the format:

[[NameOfArticle#SubsectionName]]

If you click the link set up in this way you will be taken to the subsection on the page of corresponding article.

Here's an example: How do I insert a link to a specific subsection of an article?#Section 3


Section 1[]

This is empty filler
































Section 2[]

More filler
































Section 3[]

This is the target of the example. You can use this technique to help readers navigate to a specific portion of the page they are currently on, (as is done in this example), but you can also use it to take them to section of a totally separate page.
