Using Anchors Within Posts
« on: October 08, 2008, 06:43:01 AM »
This may end up making me look like a complete dumba$$, but Mouse Man asked me to post this here. So anyway, for those who want to be able to link to a specific section of their post (I will be using this from now on in the Weekly Tech News), you can use the [anchor] and [iurl][/iurl] bbc tags which I've only recently discovered, hence this post.
To add an anchor to your post you place the [anchor] tag somewhere in your document with a unique name e.g.
[anchor=my_unique_name]
Then, when you wish to link to this anchor, you use the [iurl][/iurl] (internal URL) tags to link to the anchor like so:
[iurl=#my_unique_name]go to my anchor[/iurl]
You can try this out by clicking here.

just wanted to point out -
if you link to an anchor in a different post, it wont work in preview mode but will (should!) when you've posted
