HTML Bookmarks and HTML Anchors and (WordPress) Page Jumps

These things allow you to link to defined, set attribute link locations as places within a webpage, blog post, blog page, or element of HTML code. You can then link to those anchors to navigate up and down throughout your article.

Read more about HTML anchors (in this linked page referred to as HTML Bookmarks) at https://www.w3schools.com/html/html_links_bookmarks.asp (the link opens in a new tab).

In WordPress, HTML anchors are termed “Page Jumps.” Read the WordPress.org article on “Page Jumps” (the link opens in a new tab).

Reader (and note to future self),

I have been looking for a way to use the “?” (question mark) and trail with a string while writing a web link. My purpose is in trying to send the clicked link elsewhere. However, I am not wanting to code a permanent redirect as in redirecting to a moved address or site location, nor am I using it to pass search terms and their results from a search database (i.e., https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=redirect+javascript). I am not at this time of writing needing it to trackback affiliate links or such, just wanting to use the method mainly because of its looking so proper; and that so many other websites use redirects and navigation methods that use the question mark (“?”) seamlessly within visiting their site and its pages.

I found a StackOverflow (the link opens in a new tab) article question and its answers that seem to be what I’ve been searching for in this instance.

In the page of results, I found when looking for “redirect javascript” the page “How do I redirect to another webpage?” and the section which seems to be what I am looking for is the answer section that starts and says, “So, the question is how to make a redirect page, and not how to redirect to a website?
You only need to use JavaScript for this. Here is some tiny code that will create a dynamic redirect page.”

(“How do I redirect to another webpage?” https://stackoverflow.com/questions/503093/how-do-i-redirect-to-another-webpage – the link opens in a new tab)

The modified code I am using then is:

	<script>
    // <!-- https://stackoverflow.com/questions/503093/how-do-i-redirect-to-another-webpage | "How do I redirect to another webpage?" -->
	// So, the question is how to make a redirect page, and not how to redirect to a website?
	// You only need to use JavaScript for this. Here is some tiny code that will create a dynamic redirect page.
	//	< script>
    //	var url = window.location.search.split('url=')[1]; // Get the URL after ?url=
    //	if( url ) window.location.replace(url);
	//  </ script>
	// So say you just put this snippet into a redirect/index.html file on your website you can use it like so.
	// http://www.mywebsite.com/redirect?url=http://stackoverflow.com
	// And if you go to that link it will automatically redirect you to stackoverflow.com.
	var url = window.location.search.split('url=')[1]; // Get the URL after ?url=
    if( url ) window.location.replace(url);
	</script>

It seems as if I have run across this article in the past, because, when I looked to bookmark the link in Chrome while reading it, the bookmark symbol already showed it in my bookmarks. So I changed its location in my bookmarks to find it more quickly the next time I need to refer to this aid.

Hello, reader.

Ida Aftermath Update: One (I i)

Here, in Thibodaux (Lafourche Parish), LA, still only generator/Generac power. Ida surely left a mark. 


Still no power for me here.
