[Pmwiki-users] Anchors and links

The reference to "ThisPage:" is a reference to an intermap link -- "ThisPage:" gets translated into the URL of the current page.

So instead of typing WikiSandbox:#myanchor type ThisPage:#myanchor

Incidentally, I have problems with this syntax in some browsers -- some browsers jump directly to the anchor, other browsers recreate the page before jumping to the anchor. I think maybe if the reference is on the current page it ought to be producing <a href='#myanchor'> instead of the full URL reference.

Also, to be XHTML compliant, does it need to be <a name='myanchor' id='myanchor'></a> ?

I agree that WikiWord#anchor is more natural to write and is easier to read in editing mode. I'm not sure why free links are a problem, I'd expect to write:

  {{free link}}#anchor and {{free link}}s#anchor

Thanks for the response Patrick.  I had tried that syntax.  Below is what I
entered into my Sandbox, and the HTML that PmWiki produced (minus my site
url).  What am I doing wrong?  This seems rather simple.  :)

And using [[WikiSandbox:#myanchor]] does not change the behavior.







<p /><a href='http://(siteurl
<p /><hr />
<p /><a name='myanchor'></a>

Woops, I made the same darn mistake again!

Reference to another page in another group:
