This is nice, but these named anchors don't work from one page to another within dev.to, at least in Chrome. For example, if I link to a section of my post (using https://dev.to/nestjs/integrate-nestjs-with-external-services-using-microservice-transporters-part-1-p3#broker-message-protocol), the page is always scrolled to the top. Interestingly, if I open the link in a new tab (right mouse click -> open in new tab) it works fine.

Also, this would be so much better if the page rendered with visible icons indicating the bookmarkable content corresponding to named anchors. This would make it a lot easier to share a deep link to a section.
