Named Anchors in Mark It Down

I can't seem to create working links to named anchors on the same page using the Mark It Down editor.

I'm using this to do the link:

* [Link](#link)

but nothing I try seems to add the named anchor needed, instead rendering the code out in the browser.

Here's my diagnostic report:

Can you show us your template tag?

<perch:content id="text" type="textarea" label="Text" markdown="true" editor="simplemde" imagewidth="640" imageheight="480" />

Ok, so you're using SimpleMDE, not MarkItUp as your editor.

The example you've given looks like correct markdown syntax. What problem are you seeing?

My named anchor, <a id=”test”></a>test, is being rendered with tags - i.e. just as I have written it here.

If you want to allow direct HTML input you need to set html="true" on the template tag.

Ah, thanks Drew, that's done it. :-)
