scrolling down page with links

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I am needing to scroll down the page via links, and it works fine in IE: but does not work in Netscape. Could someone look at the following code and see if something is wrong? Here is a snippet of code. PS I have to use double ## because of using coldfusion.

1.  &nbsp;&nbsp;<A HREF="##Section1" class="leftLinks">Warranty registration process</a><br>
                                                  2.     &nbsp;&nbsp;<A HREF="##Section2" class="leftLinks">Terms and proof of ownership</a><br>
                                                  3.     &nbsp;&nbsp;<A HREF="##Section3" class="leftLinks">covered equiptment</a><br>
                                                  4.     &nbsp;&nbsp;<A HREF="##Section4" class="leftLinks">Services provided</a><br>

Your problem is the double ## that you use.  Just use one, and manually do it instead of letting ColdFusion do it for you.


I cannot do that, you have to escape the # in coldfusion with double # or you get a coldfusion error.


I doubt that... it's not in any CF tag. Actually, I don't see ANY CF tags there... Unless this is an actual CFM file, there's no reason to use any CF conventions.


What do you doubt? The above code is encapsulated in <CFOUTPUT> tags, I just did not post the entire page. Yes this is a .cfm



P.S I just removed one of the # off one of the links and relocated my <CFOUTPUT> tags and it still does not work in Netscape

Located the error. The name is case-sensitive in NS

Change <A NAME="section1"> to <A NAME="Section1">

and your problems should go away !


Very good. I had just figured that out myself. I appreciate you looking at the entire picture.


No problems, I'm here to help!  :)
