I've always done it this way (fine on IE and NS nix):

http://www.mysite.com/x?arga=one&argb=two#gotohere
Now, tell me why that wouldn't work, if you've already tried that.

By the way, it is called "anchors" not "bookmarks". Bookmarks is in
weblanguage URLs stored in the webbrowser :)

Subject: [Zope] Arguments in URLs with bookmarks


> Hi,
>
> I've just run across something sort of odd...
>
> Let's say I have a DTML Document 'x' in my site, and I am going to link to
it with the following URL:
>
> http://www.mysite.com/x?arga=one&argb=two
>
> When Zope processes the URL, the query arguments arga and argb are stored
in the REQUEST object, and I can refer to them in DTML like this:
>
> <dtml-var name="arga">
>
>
> Now, let's say that I need to have the URL include a bookmark to a point
deeper in the page.  The URL now becomes:
>
> http://www.mysite.com/x#gotohere?arga=one&argb=two
>
>
> On RedHat, using Netscape 4.76, the query arguments get passed into the
REQUEST object properly.
>
> On Windows, using either IE 5.x or Netscape 6, the query arguments seem to
disappear entirely.  The same behavior is also apparent using Opera 4.0b4 on
RedHat.  Since the query arguments don't make it into the REQUEST object,
the dtml-var line above results in a KeyError.  Although I could protect
myself from the KeyError easily enough, what I really need is the values
passed in the URL.
>
> This is using Zope 2.2.4 running on RedHat Linux, BTW.
>
> Does anyone have an idea why adding the bookmark is causing Zope to fail
in parsing the URL?
> Is there an alternative syntax for the URL that will both pass the
arguments and goto the right point on the page?
>
> Thanks, Mike.
