Subject: Custom entry IDs in HTML export
Date: Fri, 27 Mar 2009 13:47:34 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <87myb7w2s9.fsf@CPU107.opentrends.net> (raw)

Hi, this may have been reported before; however I didn't find it in the FAQ.

  I would like to choose which ID each heading will have when they are exported to HTML. For instance, I want the table of contents to link to the anchor #tutorials instead of #sec-1.4.1. In this way, external links won't depend on the section ordering. It is also more expressive semantically.

  At the moment the best I know of is:

** TODO heading

  This is exported as:
: <h3 id="sec-1.1"><a name="target" id="target"></a><span class="section-number-3">1.1</span> <span class="todo TODO"> TODO</span> heading </h3>

  But I want:
: <h3 id="target"><span class="section-number-3">1.1</span> <span class="todo TODO"> TODO</span> heading </h3>

  Since entries can already have IDs (I mean the property "ID", obtained by C-c l for instance), this could now be easier to implement. 
  As an extreme solution: If org-mode used exactly that ID to link to the entry, I wouldn't mind changing the entry ID overall in my files so that they have meaningful names instead of random data. Maybe I wouldn't even mind having an HTML ID called b9c1a93e-2af4-4a41-bfe3-8d2bd62c0614… (if it starts with a letter, it's still a valid ID).

  In case it's too complex to do this in org, do you know of some script to replace the IDs after export?
