Default link to anchor in a db-generated page

I have monthly and non-monthly programs loaded into a table, field=moprog, that link to an anchor on another page that is db-generated.

Page 1 code:
Code:
if($data['moprog'] == 'Yes') echo "<p><a href=\"./programs.php#".$data['month']."\" class=\"subheadb\" style=\"margin-bottom: 10px;\">".$data['month']." Program</a></p>";
Page 2 code:
Code:
echo "<a name=\"".$data['month']."\"></a><h1>".$data['month']." Breakfast Program</h1>
***It will load the db-generated page but won't focus on the anchor.***

Please let me know if I need to further explain my situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi HollyAnn,

It seems that you have two "pages" of code to handle this... I can't tell from your post whether or not both "pages" are generated from program.php. If so, the user's web browser will not make a new request to the server, but will look for the anchor on the current page.

Therefore, you'll need to make sure that either:

1) page 1 and page 2 are physically different files, or
2) page 2's content gets generated as part of page 1's output (all in program.php).



Does that make sense?

HTH,
Nik

Nik,

You are correct; there ARE 2 pages to handle this. They are both calling from the same table, but page 2, content is NOT generated from page 1's output.

Hmmm.... I really needed something to eat so I went out to dinner and had a couple of drinks, ergo my reasoning and programming skills are kaput.....

Would you help me reprogram page 2? Let me know if you'd like to continue this post via email so that I could give you further coding...

Thanks for "coming back" just for me .......

Try this:

Page 1 code:


if($data['moprog'] == 'Yes')
{
  // echo "<p><a href=\"./programs.php#".$data['month']."\" class=\"subheadb\" style=\"margin-bottom: 10px;\">".$data['month']." Program</a></p>";

  echo '<p>';
  echo '<a href="./programs.php#'.$data['month'].'" class="subheadb" style="{margin-bottom: 10px;}">';
  echo $data['month'] .' Program</a>';
  echo '</p>';
}



Page 2 code:

  // echo "<a name=\"".$data['month']."\"></a><h1>".$data['month']." Breakfast Program</h1>

  echo '<a name="'.$data['month'].'" />';
  echo '<h1>'.$data['month'].' Breakfast Program</h1>';
