Problem with Named Anchors

Registered User

These don't scroll properly on Safari and Chrome on both Mac and Windows.
They open page on which the anchor is but don't position the anchor on the top of the page, but somewhere in the middle. In some cases anchors point to incorrect position and they are useless.
Is it something someone experienced before? Is it Apple and Google bug or it can be fixed within WebsitePainter? I also checked it on Win XP on a virtual machine on my Mac and both IE and Opera work fine.

If you need to take a look at what I am talking about, please open the site below in Safari or Chrome. Some links on the right point to a number of anchors across the site.

Any idea? Is there anything I'm doing wrong?

Thanks a lot,

Hi, yes, this is a problem in Chrome and Safari. It's a bug in that browsers, and there is not much you can do about this, unfortunately. There was a small improvement in the latest update in WebsitePainter to improve that situation, making Safari and Chrome work a bit better with this, but the bug in these two browsers is still there.

Thanks niko.

It means that useful tool cannot be used... sad...

I'm not a HTML guru, so is there any simple workaround?

I would appreciate your help guys.

Many thanks.

I just tried it out with the latest Chrome and Safari and WebsitePainter 2.1.1, and I couldn't find a situation where the anchor wasn't working, so everything looks working for me. Are you using the latest versions? Otherwise, maybe you can send me your .wspd file, and I'll have a look at it and see how this can be improved.

Hi niko, thanks for your reply.

Yes, I am using the latest version. It works fine for me on Opera, Firefox and IE both on Win and Mac, but no joy with Safari and Chrome.

If you can take a look, I am sending you my project file to your office e-mail address.

Thanks for your help.

I suffered a few days, but realized what the problem is and solved it.
Chrome doesn't understand this anchor code: name="NamedAnghor1" it takes into account only id.
You need to find the id in the anchor code and name the anchor with this name.
