    Hi,

    I've written a few FAQ's and guides recently and it strikes me the biggest thing missing is the ability to link to anchor points in vbulletin on AF using BBcode.

    I know this is possible within vbulletin by creating new codes. it doesnt appear to require any plugins or anything. Please could you have a look at this Phases and let me know if it is doable and whether you would consider it?

    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php/224630-Anchors-in-posts-using-vbcode

    it would make these guides and FAQ's MUCH tider.

    Thanks in advance.

    If direct links could be created to be posted in other threads that would be good too but may be asking too much there

    Thanks. It's a lot of work to retro-fit into a post of that size but well worth it.

    Now to do the rest

    Edit... Oooh works in the app too

    Very very nice Dan :) If only more people check this little forum and see that this is implemented so they can use it for their guides, lol.

    I'll be passing this on to ALP, lol. *thinks* I might PM some other members with really good guides. I think they'd want to make it easier to navigate their guides, lol.

    Its so much tidier than the hide tags IMHO and the fact that you can direct a member from a separate post to the exact section of the guide required is fantastic. Saves them trawling through lines of block text to find their answer.

    It is a shame the tags are a little too involved to create buttons though so knowledge of these tags will be hard to spread.

    Those that write Root guides are tech smart enough to learn (I would think) lol.

    Yeah. But it does take a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time to set up an existing post with the tags.

    Sorry, just to clarify, what i said about the knowledge is actually awareness. No buttons, no one knows.
