Re: [PLUG] HTML Anchor & Post Data

My first thought is that the page returned for the relevant project needs some JavaScript, possibly:

 <BODY onload="window.location.href+='#Anchor';" ...

assuming #Anchor is defined on that page

I've written a project management program that uses a web interface.   One of
the things I want to do is include a link to an anchor on the page, so that
the page automatically scrolls down to the <a name="location"></a> anchor.

However, I also want to include data in the URL line as part of a "post"
process from a form.

Unfortunately, I don't seem to be able to make both of these things happen at
the same time.

For example:

"http://www.somebody.com/cgi-bin/Project.py?ProjectNumber=2014-0001";  works fine
to automatically load the page for this project number.

Likewise,"http://www.somebody.com/cgi-bin/Project.py#Anchor";  automatically
jumps to the anchor location.

But I can't combine the 2!  If I try"http://www.somebody.com/cgi-bin/Project.py#Anchor?ProjectNumber=2014-0001";, the project number is not
picked up by the python script.

Anybody got any ideas?
