Use Command+F on OS X to search within a page. Then use Command+G to move to the next search result, and Shift+Command+G to move to the previous result. On systems other than OS X, swap the Control key for Command.

At the top of the page, you will see a list of breadcrumb links reflecting the current document’s position within the information architecture. Clicking on one of these links will take you either to a page dedicated to that category, or to the corresponding section of the homepage.

Automatic headline anchors

The guides_style_18f gem includes AnchorJS, and configures it to automatically create link anchors for <h3>, <h4>, and <h5> headline elements. Hovering the mouse over one of these elements will expose a link icon. Click on or hover over the icon to access the link, which you can then copy and paste.

To create these headline elements in our Markdown sources, begin a line containing a headline with ###, ####, or #####, respectively.

Table of Contents

In addition to automatic headline anchors, when a site has > 2 headlines in a page, the in-page table of contents is displayed. The ToC is generated by application.js.
