[BUG] Anchors for "setting_group"s incorrect
« on: December 29, 2002, 04:49:42 AM »
In admin/settings.php, the Anchors  are incorrectly coded with a "#" preceeding the anchor target name, i.e.
Code: [Select]
<a name="#setting_group_1">..... code... </a>

 should be:

<a name="setting_group_1"></a>..... code....

The Named target anchor should be without the "#" character, whereas the JUMP to the local target anchor does require the "#" character, i.e.
Code: [Select]
<a href="#setting_group_1">

As an anchor, the code between the <a name""> and </a> is superfluous and has no bearing on the anchor. What is required is the complete anchor with the closing tag. <a name"..."></a>.

When the anchor is coded with the "#", the problem is not apparent in IE (lax interpretation of HTML); BUT it is apparent in other browsers such as Netscape and Mozilla. In Netscape and Mozilla, there is NO local target anchor if it is incorrectly defined using a "#" as in
Code: [Select]
<a name"#...."></a>

For information, this 'bug' is still present in version 1.7.1, and prevents Firefox from using the 'jump' facility correctly.

Removing all the relevant '#' in admin/settings.php as described solves the issue.
