I want to link back and forth between an online text. I can put anchors in the text and add the <a href="www.com">Visit</a> tag to go there FROM the storymap. But how do I link to a particular point within a storymap? I want to drop in at point #n.
Two of our applications support that really well through a URL parameter (index or entry = the point you want to start). Examples:
Map Tour http://story.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapTour/?appid=c50be5615f024cc482ccb88222a8719d&index=3
Map Series http://trans.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapSeries/?appid=7232d42129c145269ad9b8723fbeb8f9&entry=3
Map Journal also support that and it's working well on the Floating Panel layout.
But it's not working as well with the Side Panel layout depending on your content (if you have content like images that load after the app load, the panel may not be scrolled properly).
OK, then how about if the Story Map is an iframe in another page? I do have admin access to both pages.
You can use that same technique in the code of your iframe
Good, thank you. But I want to link from outside this page and drop into the tour at a specified point, in the map in the iframe. If i name the iframe name="map", then can that be used a shortcut somehow to then append the index number, index=7, for example?
This is exactly what we have been attempting to do with id's and anchors with no luck, thanks!
I've tested this out on the non-hosted version of my story map and it works great, but how do I get it to work on the hosted version? Where do I place the &entry=3 for a hosted story map?
Same question answered here.
Excellent! Thank you, Gregory!
