This template can be used to create an ordered list which generates HTML anchors for every bullet point. This makes it much easier to maintain lists where anchors to individual entries are required.

Note that if you use it more than once on the same page, you'll need to use the |name= parameter every time after the first, and with a different name for each, so that the generated anchors are unique. A number or lowercase plain alphabet (non-accented) character is recommended - if you use an invalid character, it will be converted e.g. "x y z á" becomes "x_y_z_.C3.A1"

The anchors generated are of the form "alist-x" where x is the list item number (or with |name=2, the form "alist2-x"). So to link to the first entry of a list, use [[pagename#alist-1|linkname]].

Usage

{{ anchored list
|First entry
|Second entry
|So on
...
|Last entry
}}
{{ anchored list |name=2
|First entry
|Second entry
|Third entry
}}
{{ anchored list |name=3
|First entry
|Second entry
|Third entry
}}

Up to 99 entries are supported.
