How do I link to a specific section on a wiki page?

Linking to sections You can “deep link” to a section of an article (or other Wikipedia page), using a hash character ( # ), then the section’s title, with underscore characters ( _ ) replacing spaces. For example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitten#External_links links to the same section as Kitten#External_links.

Does Fandom show your IP?

Unless someone is editing logged out, Fandom will not expose IPs. However, there are times when we will look up an IP to help us combat bad behaviour. For example, if someone is causing damage to a wiki, staff are able to look up their IP in order to block it and stop them vandalizing.

How do you link one readme to another?
