Hi RoboHurt and welcome to the RH community.
I'm failing to understand what you want to achieve. The whole point of an anchor is to start the display of a page at a specific point. By supplying two anchors you are confusing your browser (as well as me) causing it to display at the top.
BTW I've tries this in RHX5 and I get the same behaviour so am unsure how you got it to work.
Thank you for the welcome and the response.
All I'm trying to find out is the URL to load the Frequently_Asked_Questions.htm page directly at the #Question_two anchor inside of the index.htm FlashHelp shell.
In Robohelp x5, this used to be index.htm#Frequently_Asked_Questions.htm#Question_two
With Robohelp 7, this url stopped working.
I can load the FAQ page inside of the shell with index.htm#Frequently_Asked_Questions.htm
I can load the FAQ page to the Question_two ancor without the index.htm shell with Frequently_Asked_Questions.htm#Question_two
But I can't figure out any link that loads the Question_two anchor at the top of the FAQ page inside of the index.htm shell. In Robohelp 7, index.htm#Frequently_Asked_Questions.htm#Question_two just loads the FAQ page at the top.
Thanks for your help,
Where are you linking from, another topic in the project? If so, why even bother with index.htm? Try stripping that from one of the links and see what you get.
If it's a call from your app, see Peter Grainge's website for more info.
It's a link from a web application to its help system. The links were set up to go directly to the relevant section of the relevant page in the help system. The links used to work great, that's why this problem is so frustrating.
I could change the links and remove index.htm# from the URLs, but then I wouldn't get the fancy left-navigation and top-search bar. It would also require redeploying the webapp.
Unless there is an easier fix, I guess that's what I'll have to do.
Could any RH8 users check whether URLs to index.htm with the two anchors, one to the specific page, one to the anchor on that page, work in that version?
I just tested this in RH8 and it is working fine.
Thanks a lot for checking Peter. I'll look into upgrading to RH8.
