For a project I'm working on, I'm trying to setup a glossary of terms in a SharePoint wiki page. I wanted to be able to link directly to terms but when I tried using regular html # section links, a SharePoint generated javascript function forces the page to the top after every load. Which makes classic html section linking undesirable.

After reading online, I discovered that Sharepoint duplicates html's section linking with what Microsoft calls Bookmarks. My problem now is that Bookmarks appear to be disabled for our SharePoint site:
This control is currently disabled

The admins for the SharePoint are ready to flip any switches I instruct them to, but they don't know how to turn this feature on.

How does one activate or authorize bookmarking functionality?


Ok, I've found the answer. To make Bookmark field visible, SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure feature (site collection level) must be activated. To enable this field (after previous step it'll be visible but disabled) SharePoint Server Publishing feature must be activated (site level).
