Clicking Anchor link, it gets appended in URL. How to stop it?

Avatar

Level 3

Hi,
I'm using anchor links in page for some purpose within it. But when anchor link is clicked, it gets appended to URL in browser.

Suppose anchor link is #tab1, when it is clicked #tab1 gets added to URL (?wcmmode=disabled#tab1) which I don't want.

Is there any way I can stop this from happening?

Hi @sesmic,

 

As it is a browser feature you need to override the default behavior through the script. You might check this as well.

Hope this helps.

Hi@sesmic 

anchor tag ids from the url can be hidden/removed by multiple ways as follows.

 

1. javascript - capture anchor tag click event and replace the unwanted tags

Check this video#16 - Remove anchor link id tag and # on urls when loading a page - YouTube

(Reference How to hide anchor tag from URL using jQuery (deanha.com)

2. Using CSS - (Reference - html - How to hide an anchor tag by href #id using css - Stack Overflow)

 

 

 

Hope this helps

 

Thanks,
