In the author environment, anchors may behave unexpectedly, and
not always load the browser at the right part of the page.
Published April 4, 2016
Several components (e.g. Title, Body Text) allow embedding of
anchors, linkable targets on a page. Links can then be
created that should open the browser at that specific part of the
page. In the author environment, these anchors do not always
function as expected, and the page may load displaying another part
of the page instead.
There is no direct workaround.This is essentially 'normal' behavior for the UBCMS, and the problem appears to be generated by other programming, such as loading the Sidekick. The published page should function as expected.
You can also disable a lot of the additional behavior by the author environment by adding '?wcmmode=disabled' to the browser location bar (NOT to an actual link on your page); e.g. https://ubcms-author.buffalo.edu/content/www/some-page.html?wcmmode=disabled#your-anchor .
Requests submitted by the online forms will be triaged quickly by the UBCMS Help Desk.
