I have a link on my website that will lead the viewer to an article in Metal Building Construction news- I was wondering if there was a way for the link to open at a specific spot in the new page? We want the link to open right to the location on the site where our building is featured. I know how to do it if the link is to a location on the same page as the link... Not sure if it's even possibile to do this. Here is the page:http://stateline7.com/final/Recognition/Recognition.html the image and link is about half way down the page under the Granite Peak Business Center.

your article here....
Link in parent page:
