Here is the issues im running into....

I have a page that loads a modal which loads a remote page that has a bunch of text in it.

I load the modal via jquery.

I need to have javascript or whatever scroll to a anchor on the page. right now im storing the anchor in a cookie. So lets say I have 3 anchors, they are named 1, 2, 3 in the cookie when someone clicks on link 2 it stores "2" into the cookie when the modal loads I need i to look a the cookie and scroll to that number.

One of the issues is it cannot reload the page so a window.location... will not work because that actually closes down the modal.

Any solutions that anyone can think of???

Thanks

does it work if you use:
window.location.hash = '#anchorname';

It shouldn't reload the page, but jump to the anchor.
