anchor link issue

  • Hello,

    Whenever I try to use manually anchor links by trying to edit HTML code to what I intend, it does not work.

    Let's see what I do at first and how does my texts looks:

    <p><a href="#test">Please Go To test ID</a></p>
    <p id="test">My Test ID</p>

    But when I save my article, it reverts back to this:

    <p>Please Go To test ID</p>
    <p>My Test ID</p>

    I also have changed the first line to this, but it didn't work either:

    <a href="#test"><p>Please Go To test ID</p></a>

    I'm not sure why it's not saved my preferred modifications.

    Could you please help me what should I do in order to overcome this issue?

    Thanks in advance

  • Hello,

    Anchors and in particular custom names/ids are not enabled in the HTML filter and thus are stripped on the server side.


    As I only use the Suite version on my site, then what should I do? Also Due to the fact that I do not own a license, I cannot ask for this plugin and as far as I have searched in Filebase, there's no such a plugin yet.

    What should I do then? Are there any solutions?

    We currently do not support custom link anchors in messages, this includes both the client-side (WYSIWYG) and the server-side (customized HTMLPurifier) implementation. I have put this onto my things to look into and to see if there is an easy way to enable it without causing any unwanted side-effects.

    However, for now there is no solutions for this, I'm sorry.
