As the title says, how can you reference a chapter or section title when using cref? To be more clear: I do not want the label "section" or "chapter", I want the actual title of the chapter or section..

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[norsk]{babel} 
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{apacite}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{enumerate}
\usepackage[norsk,nameinlink]{cleveref}
\begin{document}

\section{Title}


\section{another title}
%I want to reference the first section here, with its name


\end{document}

    Add a \label so you have something to refer to. Then use \cref{label name} and \nameref{label name} for the title.

This:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[norsk]{babel} 
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{apacite}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{enumerate}
\usepackage[norsk,nameinlink]{cleveref}
\begin{document}

\section{Title}


\section{another title}
\label{sss}
%I want to reference the first section here, with its name

nameref: \nameref{sss}\\
cref: \cref{sss}\\
ref: \ref{sss}

\end{document}

Gives this after 2 or 3 compilations:

  • I see, so it means "section" I guess. I was asking because I have a related problem but it seems to be different. Thank you.

So, if I understand the comments and suggestions correctly:

Cleveref actually don't have a function equal to nameref, so the solution is to use normal \nameref

    Yes, exactly. Why in the world would it double something that is (1) painful to implement and (2) perfectly done by hyperref?!

  • I just thought the best "approach" would be to use one of them through the whole document. Guess I got blinded by that.

  • Just FYI, cleveref does have namecref and many variants, but those similarly-named operations don't do what you want: the actual name of the labeled element. As you noticed, they instead give you the name of the "class" of element (e.g. section, chapter). Commented Oct 1, 2019 at 20:38
