I'm doing some testing with 2.0.  Is there a way to link to a named anchor from the header?  For example, when initially creating the default site you see text in the header like: <li><a href="#about">About</a></li>.  

Is there a way to link down the page to a row or text card?

I'm not having any luck trying markdown or html approaches.

Thanks,

-Bruce

Hi Bruce, 

We had this working with markdown before - we'll look into it.

Hi Courtney,

Is there a way you can change the way Open Data handles anchors?  The problem we are encountering is that the title bar (one with your login info to the right) covers up the first part of where the anchor jumps to.  So if I put my anchor on the title of the section I want to jump to, the title is covered up the bar.  We ended up putting the anchors at the end of the previous sections as a workaround, but that can lead to problems later if we add new sections.

Thanks

Hi Kevin,

 

Were you ever able to resolve this?  I'm running into the exact same problem.

Is there a way to use standard HTML code for the named anchors, such as <a name="data">My Data</a>

-instead of Markdown?  I want to use anchors with other HTML tags and it doesn't seem to work when using Markdown format.

Hi Bob, 

There's no way to do this right now, though we can add it to our backlog.
