Getting Apache Log to see anchor links #link as it does ?link
Posted on 2006-05-21
We would like to somehow setup Apache log so that it records the fully address in the address bar, so we can tell when users are using our anchor links (which use #link-location).
The IT department has told us that this is impossible, but I like to believe its possible as it does add to the address bar and many cases on our site it also changes the page as we anchor link into pages from other pages.
So page A would have a link to page B with like PAGE-B.com/page.htm#middle-of-the-page and now we want Apache to be able to see that the users landed on PAGE-B.com/page.htm#middle-of-the-page and and know that its different then the user that went straight to PAGE-B.com/page.htm
IT department has said we can use ?and-some-value, but we don't like this option as we want to use the already implemented anchor links on the site as we have millions of pages and links and updating to a new system isn't possible, better to invest in updating Apache to work with the current structure.
Hope you can help our team out, big thanks to Experts like you!
