I have a question at:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28717111/Article-edit-Data-Anomaly-1-of-4-Dirty-Read-5-8.html

In this question, I want the readers be able to navigate to another page using:

http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/20279/Isolation-levels-at-a-glance.html#DirtyRead

Where I also have <a id="DirtyRead"></a>    (right under Table 1)

Question: How can I make it to go to a certain location in this link?

What I have above doesn't work. Do you know how this is done?

This is partial source code I have in the target page:
<h3></h3>

<hr><h3><br><a id="DirtyRead"></a>
<mark><u>Data Anomaly 1 of 4:<b>&nbsp;Dirty Read&nbsp;</b></u></mark><br>
Below, using a manual transaction a&nbsp;dirty read case illustrated in figure 5 followed a solution in figure 6 with a automated transaction using an isolation technique to control this data anomaly.<br>
&nbsp;</h3>

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

in your article, it seems there is no anchor(bookmark) for "DirtyRead"...



you can try to add that in your aricle and try again..

>><a id="DirtyRead"></a>
Marco GasiFreelancerCommented:
In this case the # symbol doesn't mean 'id'. When you want to use an anchor you have to use name attribute. So the link:
http://www.somepage.com/somename.html#someanchor

Open in new window

points to this anchor
<a name="someanchor">Anchor</a>

Open in new window

not to this one
<a id="someanchor">Anchor</a>

Open in new window

I know it can be confusing, but the anchor tecnique dates back to the dawn of the web, a lot before the css id identifier born :-)

@Ryan,

I have been adding <a id="DirtyRead"></a> but EE rejects it,

@Marco,

I added the following:

<hr><h3><br>
<a name="DirtyRead">aa</a> <mark><u>Data Anomaly 1 of 4:<b>&nbsp;Dirty Read&nbsp;</b></u></mark><br>
Below, using a manual transaction a&nbsp;dirty read case illustrated in figure 5 followed a solution in figure 6 with a automated transaction using an isolation technique to control this data anomaly.<br>
&nbsp;</h3>

In EE's edit mode shows like the image below:
anchor
But when I click on
 http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/20279/Isolation-levels-at-a-glance.html#DirtyRead
It doesn't go to the intended location.

But unlike <a id="DirtyRead"></a> which keeps disappearing, <a name="DirtyRead">aa</a> stays in place.

Have I messed up something here? BTW, the text aa will be removed later.

Thanks,

Mike

just to try out luck...

not too sure if you need to follow as how EE defining a bookmark.. like starting with a "aXXXXXXX" ?

if it doesn't work, you may post an enquiry at Experts Exchange Community Experts and see if someone can provide you a solution? some "running scripts" in EE may stop us doing "normal things".

Hey Mike, I looked for your anchor in the source of the page but it is not there. This is what OI find:
<a href="http://" target="_blank">aaa</a> <mark><u>Data Anomaly 1 of 4:<b> Dirty Read </b></u></mark><br />

Open in new window


at line 675.
If there is no name, the anchor can't obviously work. I tried also with Firebug but his is what I find:
<a target="_blank" href="http://">aa</a>

Don't understand why you say it "stays in place."

@Marco,

You are right. When you were checking it, I must have removed it to try something else. Now I have it again in place and will not fiddle with it. Sorry for that. I have:
 <a name="DirtyRead">bb</a>
Marco GasiFreelancerCommented:
I'm really sorry, Mike, but it looks like we can't be able to check that :-)
See the screenshot: I hope it's large enough in order to let you see what I mean. Look at the Firebug section, below the page: the link is with no name. Maybe EE doesn't allow anchors not formatted as "aXXXXXXX" as Ryan suggested?

This is a known problem at E-E; we have reported it as a bug.  It's also a problem in the Articles, where it prevents us from having a table of contents for an article!  Sorry about that.
