How To Use The "Hash" button to auto-scroll to specific position within a post

Post#1 by tim » 02 Sep 2017, 06:53


Okay, so this is bit technical I guess but it makes links super-friendly.
If you have a really long post like with many images... You can optionally define hash above each image.
Just type it a text string for example: "black_blue_butterfly"
Then select the text and click hash button
so that you have

Code: Select all

[hash]black_blue_butterfly[/hash]
Then after you post the message you'll see #black_blue_butterfly where you added it (ie. above your image).


Now your post has anchors that can be auto-scrolled to.
For example I defined hashes to this post: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=856&p=8814#p8814
Now, that those hashes are defined, anyone can link specifically to those hashes (it'll auto-scroll to that hash/anchor).
For example, this link: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=856&p=8814#black_blue_butterfly
will take you to the post and auto-scroll to the black_blue_butterfly defined hash.
Notice the #black_blue_butterfly at the end of the link instead of the #p8814.

Just wanted to share that so if any wishes to define hashes for their posts so that people can easily link to specific locations within a post, they can.
That's all for now.

UPDATE:
I created autoscroll bbcode which is simpler to use.
Just select any piece of text in your post and click on the autoscroll button to turn it in to an autoscroll link.

Then once you post the message, you can click on the created autoscroll link and it'll take you to the right place and then you can copy the URL in your browser to link people to that specific location.

This is simpler to use because you don't have to manually create the # at the end of the link. By clicking the autoscroll link, it turns your URL into the right # link.

As an example: You can try clicking the autoscroll links (links with the # in front) in this post and will notice your browser URL changes to reflect the correct link to get autoscroll to that place.
