Description of Error - 943: Duplicated span Anchors

The profile has duplicated HTML SPAN anchors. Span anchors are used for inpage links, but each name should be used only once.

Description of SPAN anchors and links to them: Span anchor is set by <span id='name'></span> and links to it are set by [[#name]] or [[#name|link text]], which creates the inpage link to the anchor and clicking on that link scrolls the page to the anchor location where you usually read more about something. While such linking is not recommended on WikiTree, it is not forbidden, and the use is not a subject of suggestions, but there can be errors using such links and they are reported.

Possible errors are that there are Duplicated span Anchors, where 2 anchors have the same name, Missing span Anchors where there is a link to an unexisting anchor, Unused span Anchors that lists all anchors that are not used and Too many inpage links where there is just way too many of them,

Content of info column: Anchor name(s) that are duplicated.

Possible Causes

  • Merge of two profiles using the same anchors.
  • Copy/Paste of text from the same or another profile.

Action Steps

Remove the duplicated anchors. If anchors are used for links to sources, WikiTree recommends the use of inline citations using <ref> tags.
