How to make clickable links and cross-references in pdfs produced by LaTeX?

I tried the package url unsuccessfully.

• It is hilarious that this question was given a duplicate badge when it was asked one year before than the other one. This question was also searchable in Google during the time when the other question was asked. There is also more thorough solution in this question than the other one. Aug 31, 2013 at 8:32
• Very ironic to tag it as hyperref ;-) Sep 5, 2014 at 17:34

\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
citecolor=black,
filecolor=black,
urlcolor=black
}


You can change the color of the links as above.

• A few tips: to simply avoid any visual indication of links, use option hidelinks. This can also be done like this: \usepackage[hidelinks]{hyperref}. To set all colors at once, use allcolors=black. colorlinks seems to work the same as colorlinks=true. Mar 7, 2014 at 17:28
• The option hidelinks seems to be unnecessary in my XeLaTeX file. Not sure if this is because of XeLaTeX or that the lack of visual indication of links has been made default in hyperref. Somebody might want to investigate. May 22, 2014 at 12:22

• Make sure you do not have the “draft” option in the document class. With “draft”, links are not created! Jul 20, 2017 at 13:23
• To use the hyperref package with the cleveref package, you need to place hyperref before cleveref in the preamble. Apr 14, 2020 at 19:58

The package listed is correct. This is a more detailed account of setup though:

\usepackage{color}   %May be necessary if you want to color links
\usepackage{hyperref}
\hypersetup{
linktoc=all,     %set to all if you want both sections and subsections linked
}


Once this is all setup, you should just be able to include the

\tableofcontents


sometime after

\begin{document}


and be all set

Don't miss out on the

\hypersetup{linktocpage}


Moreover, if you need to use dviaps+ps2pdf driver then in the default setting, the hyperlinks of long headers (that occupy more than one line) are scrambled due to a known incompatibility (README for hyperref, Section 7) and linking the page numbers resolves this issue.
The way to go is the hyperref package.
