Anchor in URL redirection issue.

Hello, so I have a problem, currently my site has direct URL with anchors for the HTML:

http://site.com/franks#!/franks/34232157/1

But when I go there in the browser it changes the URL to

http://site.com/franks/34232157/1

I need it to stop this behavior, I am using nginx as web server and as redirection, there several rules for redirecting, the site is not mine, I am just doing some fixing, so I don't have much information, the redirections I think can be doing this are:


                rewrite ^/(\w+)/embed/&(.*)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1&$2;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/$ /;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)/$ /;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1/$2;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)/$ /;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1/$2/$3;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)/$ /;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)/(\w+)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1/$2/$3/$4;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)/(\w+)&(.*)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1/$2&$3;
                rewrite ^/(\w+)&(.*)$ /newestentry/request.php?taglist=user/$1&$2;

http://site.com/franks#!/franks/34232157/1
does not look like a great url


http://site.com/franks/34232157/1
can handle path info

http://site.com/franks?34232157/1
is probably better

You cannot depend on anything after the # to be sent to the server correctly - it is for browser use only and for example some IEs will not even send it at all.

I understand that, but my client insists. I don't need it send to the server, just to stay on the URL without changing it.

Thanks
Ahem.. If you stay in the browser, what changes the url for you then?
Actually what I need to know is if is a browser behaviour, which I don't think or if it happens on nginx configuration file, like in .htaccess redirection, and how can I stop it.

Thanks.

It lead me on the right path, but I still had to do some major digging in nginx configuration.
