Hi,

I'm trying to finish up a rather long article, in which I have a table of contents that I'd like to link to the different sections of the article. Example:

I'd like to create a way for someone to click HERE.

and
immediately
jump
to
HERE.

I know it can be done in html. Is this possible with the coding we use in the forums?

Thanks,
Ian

You mean here.

Which is (with the square brackets front and end changed to round ones) (URL=http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/creating-links-w-in-the-same-page-in-forum-posts_topic93717_post1108606.html#1108606]here.[/URL)

Thanks. Unfortunately, I'm not sure if this answers my question... it seems like a way to jump to a specific post, rather than a tagged location in a post. But regardless, this looks like something I can't do until I publish the article, since it requires a dyxum URL to set up. I'll try again after I publish it. Hopefully soon.

If you publish as a number of smaller posts (say a seperate post for each item in the table of contents) rather than just one long post you can jump to the smaller posts. You can get these url's by clicking the blue dot or gold star at the top of the post, next to where it says posted: then the time.

@ifreedman Sorry I did not read you correctly before. mpb's suggestion would be the only way to achieve what you are looking to do.

ie GOTO=click would take the reader to each post/chapter without needing to read through everything beforehand, and each post/chapter could end with BACK TO TOP=click.

Ah, that's a clever idea. I'll definitely consider it. On the down side, that would require more work to report edits to the article, as will probably need to be done from time to time. Thanks!
