Anchors in posts?

Anyone know about linking to anchors?

I see from BB code list how to create an anchor in one post, but can't figure how to link to that anchor from within same post or from a different post. Is there a way to identify that anchor from within a post-link or a url-link, or is there a different BB code I missed?

Hmm... let's see... I create an anchor here.

And then I [link=test]link[/link] it here.

No, it doesn't work like here or here. Maybe someone forgot to activate [link]?

Thanks, Jellby. According to your second link (overclockers) towards the end of list, within a post, it's called Anchor link:
Code:
[jumpto=Option]value[/jumpto]
Example usage:
[jumpto=aname]This takes you to a new location within a post[/jumpto]

[aname=aname]This is where you jump to[/aname]
I assume new location aname is the anchor name.
Haven't tested yet on this BB forum system due to thunderstorm power outages happening intermitantly here.

Edit: (also found the aname description)

Thunderstorms seem to have passed. So might as well test here.

Edit: Well everything I tried didn't work. Deleted it all.

Ancient thread resurrection, but has anyone figured out how to use anchors yet?

From the FAQ, anchors are active, but I don't see any of the possible options for actually linking to them ([goto][link][jump], etc.)

If not, can they be added? That would be very nice to have for some types of threads (stickies/FAQs especially.)

This is a test of an anchor.

So it's insert the URL followed by # and the Anchor name

Just a regular link should do just fine...

This goes to PeterT's anchor

(It does open in a new page.)

EDIT: Fixed the link to match ^^

This wouldn't work to link to anchors in a new post until after the new post was created - generating the internal post number required in the url.

I think there should be a corresponding link/goto/jump bb code.

The same effect could be had if the URL bbcode didn't automatically insert a "http://" in front of your URL, but accepted things like: [URL]#MyAnchor[/URL]

I agree. With the options we have, it looks like it will always open in a new window/tab. Something that doesn't would be nice.

Like all URL links it is controlled by a setting in Profile Options, whether to open external links in a new tab. All THREAD and POST links open in the same tab, no matter what.
Which is arguably nice.

NOTE: It still reloads the page.

I did see that for POST while testing but if you try to add an anchor to a POST link, it breaks. Hopefully I am just doing something wrong.

Link to PeterT's post without using the anchor (code then test):
Code: [post=2974366]link[/post]
Test: link

With anchor:
Code: [post=2974366#MyAnchor]link[/post]
Test: [post=2974366#MyAnchor]link[/post]

Alternate POST usage:
Link to PeterT's post without anchor (code then test):
Code: [post]2974366[/post]
Test: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?p=2974366

Mostly I think it would be nice to have the ability to navigate a post/thread without reloading.

(It won't let me give you Karma for helping out on this, so let me say again: THANK YOU!)

Yes, the POST bbcode expects a post ID, so that is expected.

I agree a new tag would be useful -- I had long since worked out how to link to the anchor, unfortunately as I pointed out it will reload the page which is much less useful.


I mainly see this being used for example in tubemonkey's Black Friday thread, for jumping around in a single post or the first couple posts (which all on one page, of course ), and it would be a pity to have to always reload.

You're welcome.

(About the karma, you cannot give to the same person twice in a row, or more than 10 times a day. You may not have given karma to anyone else since this post. Or else you have been very thankful today already. )

(I used a post bbcode, not a link. Not my usual, but more in-theme with this thread. )
