www.reportsolutions.com    pardon the mess....!
Go to Product Menu
Then Ripplestone Sub Menu
Next in the center section you can see the that we use an  that we use an Article category blog called The Ultimate Crystal Reports Management Tool from within there we wanted to link it to the lower section Ripplestone Features Article category blog to a point inside from "Report Scheduling to Report Scheduling.
Can this be done if so how?

Is this page likely to change with more articles to be added to the category?

Is the Ultimate Crystal Reports Management Tool the information contained within the Category Description and then everything underneath it the Articles in Blog Format?

If I am following correctly?

If this is correct a workaround you could do is have NO Category Description for the page and simply have the first article showing with the Category Description contained within the first article?  Does that make sense.?  Then you could use an anchor point (#name) within the article and link to it with <a href="#name">link here</a>

I hope that helps somehow?

As above use the anchor links

or alternatively you can use page breaks, and slice up large pages of text into multiple "areas" and use the link to jump to other page breaks.

-  rarely will it change and the change will be slight.

Yes they are two separate " I Think" Article Category Blogs. If I have to copy and paste them together I can try to put them all under one. Hope I did not mess that up. The benefit was having The Ripplstone Features in the bold blue that way.

It sounds like you want me to combine both articles into one and linking from module to article or module to module or article to article is not really possible....?

Well yes that is what I am suggesting because I do not know how to use anchors across cateogories and articles.

The other thing you could try is the link to your article within the cateogory


http://www.reportsolutions.com/en/products/ripplestone

to the webaddress that the Features would be ( I am not sure what it would be because of your SEF urls.)
To find out what it is you could create a menu item to it and copy the URL then add the anchor point to the end so it might look like this

http://www.reportsolutions.com/en/products/ripplestone/features#anchorpoint

So then you could use that link within your category description and see if that works

As snowball said you can link to anchors across articles but its not easy

So there is a component to do this

Linkr
http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/structure-&-navigation/site-links/4010/details

Allows setup of anchors to link from one article to another

Storm,
If I just install the "SuperInstaller" will that give me all the possible tools. Or do I need to get all the others files listed on the site as well. ? Thank you for the fantastic support.
