What is the BBCode for creating an anchor link and anchor?  Nothing I've tried works including using the "New Anchor" and "New Anchor Link" buttons in the editor.

 

Thank You! :)

Seeing this is a Forum related issue, I moved it to the appropriate subforum.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

The syntax created by the tags is unfortunately not quite correct. I think someone noted it earlier this year but I guess it hasn't been changed yet. Here's how you do it:

To make the anchor itself, wrap the text in [anchor] tags. I believe spaces in an anchor name are not allowed for code reasons:
 
[anchor]sampleanchor[/anchor]
 
Now to link to this anchor, make a link like this. You can put spaces here if desired:
 
[anchorlink=sampleanchor]Some text here[/anchorlink].

So when you do all that, the end product should look like this:

 

[anchor]sampleanchor[/anchor]

 

Now to link to this anchor, make a link like this. You can put spaces here if desired:

 

[anchorlink=sampleanchor]Some text here[/anchorlink].

 


 

When you are using the BBcode to make an anchorlink it puts

[anchorlink=""]

instead of

[anchorlink=] (no quotes)

and with the quotes it does not work. I hope that helps :).

And...

 

Now...

[anchorlink=Post Start]Link to an anchor name that contains a space...[/anchorlink]

Okay, Test Complete... And it failed... There's no coverage for names with spaces in them. :(

 

I hope this gets considered for in whatever fix gets implemented? :geek:

(p.s.: Left the top section unedited... Saw no point in tweaking after...)

^Not going to try this myself, but the html code for a space is %20 so you might want to remove the space and put %20 in the place of that space

That is true, but I'm not sure it would get parsed into a space when you post. In principle one might be able to do it, but it would probably be a lot of work. The issue is that (some) HTML attributes just don't support a space in them, so when you try instructing it to put a space, it just breaks the tag completely.

 

[anchor]Some%20anchor[/anchor]

 

Yeah, in fact it breaks it as well, probably due to an unescaped % or something.
