Page Jumps Documentation Issue

I followed the steps of WordPress support to create page jumps with href and name,
but it didn't work.
And I replaced the name attribute with id, then it works fine.

Hello @aronwu and welcome :) Can you please offer more details about what were you trying to accomplish and what exactly is it mistaken in the documentation? Thank you!

Hi @aronwu, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the ticket.

It does look like the <a name=""> attribute is deprecated in HTML5. I've updated the page to recommend using <span id=""> instead.

Please note that this Trac is used for enhancements and bug reporting for the WordPress core software. Any issues with sites, including inaccurate instructions in support articles, should be reported on Thanks!
