Windows 7: Link to a certain position in page

27 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
Link to a certain position in page

When I hover over a question/reply number (in this forum), I see the link in the status bar and can use it to insert a link that would open the page in that position.

How do I do that in other pages?

In those pages, I can't find any link hovering with the mouse over a specific section.

Thank you.

It appears to be based upon the number after the /, for example, changing the link to this page /350332-link-certain-position-page.html to /350311-link-certain-position-page.html takes you to a different thread/post on this forum and changes the text after the /350311 to show the new page. It must be associated to how the sites are created and pages written.

Thank you Berton and Tookeri. I appreciate your help.

That's great.
In Example2, there's a link to question or answers. Where/how did the poster find them?
And in general, is there another technique, or I should always look for the-not-so-prominent links?

Thanks agaim.

I guess the poster already knew about them, or checked out the page source and looked for ID tags. If you're not familiar with HTML it might be difficult, but try searching for id=" The problem though is it's usually lots of them in a page.

Here's a few lines from the page source that defines the question link:
HTML Code:
             <div id="question-header">
             <h1 itemprop="name"><a href="/questions/382047/linking-to-a-specific-scroll-position-on-a-web-page" class="question-hyperlink">Linking to a specific scroll position on a web page</a></h1>         </div>
             <div id="mainbar">
So in this example you take the URL to the page and add #question-header at the end
