Cross-references

To cross-reference to arbitrary locations within one document, use the ref role. Reference target names need to start with an underscore. For example, .. _example:. However, the reference itself should not have the underscore preceding the reference. For example, example. For more information on referencing, see Internal Hyperlink Targets.

Input

.. _cg_titles:

Titles
~~~~~~

This is the section we want to reference to.

...

The following - :ref:`cg_titles` - generates a link to the section with
the defined label using this section heading as a link title.

A link label and a reference can be defined in separate source files,
but within one directory. Otherwise, use the external linking.

Output

The following - Titles - generates a link to the section with the defined label using this section heading as a link title.

A link label and a reference can be defined in separate source files, but within one directory. Otherwise, use the external linking.

External references

To link to some external locations, format the RST source as follows:

  • Do not apply any markups to specify a web link.
  • If you need a specific link title to appear in the output, format a web link as Link text <http://web-link.com> wrapping it in backticks.
  • Do not separate the link name from the link itself by defining the link in another place in your document. It prevents translated documents from using different links, for example, corresponding links to translated versions.
