More, NextPage tags and named anchors
This page is subject to frequent change.
I had a page with References at the bottom. I don’t want References to get in between my call to action and Comments – and most people don’t want to read them anyway. So I thought I could use the nextpage feature to shift References to a “second” page of the same post.
Great, but then the named anchor jumps stopped working eg say I refer to a footnote.
Clearly split pages change the url… but how? This test hopes to find that out.
- And then
- I talk
- some more
- making more citations
- that some academic readers
- might like to check references for
- and have a fairly long
- so long
- that I when I finally get to the end
I don’t want a bunch of references to get in between my call to conversation and the commenting box.
I have tried
a bunch of silly things that didn’t work.
— Unfortunately the only solution I have found is untenable for frequent use, definitely not during drafting stages if there is any possibility I might want to change the post url. Because what before was a simple named link within the page now needs to be a full url as if each “page” of the post is a separate page altogether.
Maybe if I use Get Shortlink?
From the second page where the references are the jump back works with the shortlink.
- does the shortlink stay the same if I edit the long url?
- as expected even the shortlink/#naref does not reach the #naref in a second page of the post
- Cannot simply add a /2/ to the shortlink
So I use a page break before my References but the Page 1 2 is below the social media buttons 😦
Cutting to the chase: I gave up, and now have one separate References page for all.
