# \nameref — How to display section name AND its number

Is it possible to make \nameref display not only the title of the section but also its number?

\section{First Section}
\label{sec:some_sec}

\subsection*{Unnumbered subsection}
\label{sec:subsec}

[...]



With normal \nameref I get:

what I want is a combination of numbers (as in \autoref} and section names AND (if possible) unnumbered subsections should inherit the number of the parenting section:

-
section~\ref{sec:some_sec} \nameref{sec:some_sec} –  egreg Jun 30 '13 at 18:05
Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look on our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. –  Claudio Fiandrino Jun 30 '13 at 18:18
Your label {sec:subsec} has a negative effect. You are using \subsection* and so there is no anchor (number) for any label. –  Marco Daniel Jun 30 '13 at 18:55
Marco, the answer works as I described above. For un-numbered subsections the number of the parenting section should be used -- and this is the case. Also, when i click the text in the PDF I get to the subsection (as expected). Thats exactly what I wanted ;) –  cpt. jazz Jun 30 '13 at 19:02

How about defining a new command \fullref:

\documentclass{article}

% Original definition
% \newcommand\fullref[1]{\autoref{#1} \nameref{#1}} % Two links

% Updated definition, see explanation below
\newcommand*{\fullref}[1]{\hyperref[{#1}]{\autoref*{#1} \nameref*{#1}}} % One single link

\begin{document}

\section{First Section}
\label{sec:some_sec}

\subsection*{Unnumbered subsection}
\label{sec:subsec}

[...]

\end{document}


Update

The \fullref defined above produces two links, one by \autoref, the other by \nameref. Heiko Oberdiek suggests the following definition that combines the two into one single link:

\newcommand*{\fullref}[1]{\hyperref[{#1}]{\autoref*{#1} \nameref*{#1}}}

-
You get a full link in one piece by \newcommand*{\fullref}[1]{\hyperref[{#1}]{\autoref*{#1} \nameref{#1}}}. –  Heiko Oberdiek Jun 30 '13 at 21:14
@HeikoOberdiek: Thanks :-) Your suggestion is incorporated. –  Kevin C Jun 30 '13 at 21:31
I have added the star for \nameref that I have forgotten in the comment. The star forms prevent nested double links. –  Heiko Oberdiek Jun 30 '13 at 23:32
