It might be a good idea to provide links between the diff section and the
content on the diff result page. This would save time to follow the changes.
Main reason is to quickly follow the implication of the changes in general and
the change to parameter values in particular.

It would be nice to know if "localurl" supports anchors and how to code them.

If "localurl" does *not* support anchors I would like to open a new bug report.

Another anchor... Everyone is watching their watch pages, correct? So when you
click on diff, hist or the person who changed an article, all fine, but...
When you click on the article you are most likely heading to the article to
check out the changes *without* diff information. If someone editted a section,
the section is displayed on the watch page. So, you want to head to the section.
There are anchors at the section heading. Why doesn't it automatically link to
the section header? This is especially true for Talk pages, since they are
almost always under a new heading AND at the very bottom of a very long list.
I also noticed that what I believe would be in the same category. Although I
don't know if the dev groups are split between teams that work on the watchpage
and the diff page. If so, sorry.
When someone creates a new subsection on a talk page, it is listed as an edit on
the (top). This is technically correct, but shouldn't the watch pages have a '
-> ' that heads to that new section as if someone had just editted an existing

What in the hell. Don't do that. Re-opening.

I reported 63707 as a feature request. I think it had a clearer explanation of the need. Here is what I wrote:
"In diff displays, it is sometimes hard to find the altered text in the article or edit page. This is particularly true for small edits to large tables or complex references. Blocks of text in diffs are always preceded by a line number. It would be helpful if that line number was a live link that took you to the place in the text where the changed block occurs, perhaps highlighting the first few words of the text in the diff block."
I have been editing Wikipedia for ten years and run into this problem all the time. I'm sure other editors do as well and that there are errors that have crept into the encyclopedia because it is too hard to find what has changed. I would also note that three other bugs have been redirected here, but this bug only has two votes. That seems wrong. --agr
