linking to specific lines within posts? (4 posts)

    hi,

    Let me set the scene. I want to have a glossary on my site and use phpgiggle to automatically create hyperlinks to the correct url (I just found out that it works with 1.5). What I want to do is be able to link directly to a specific line or bookmark WITHIN a post. I'm planning to have a post for each letter rather than a post for each entry. I remember trying some kind of plugin that used purple numbers or something but that didn't do what I wanted at the time and I don't know if it would even work with 1.5.

    Does anybody have any suggestions on how to get this working?

    TIA
    Phillip

    Yoagboat,

    I did consider the link you posted but as you probably know it just seperates a post into different pages and I wanted my readers to simply scroll down the glossary and stop when the found something interesting.

    I suppose that the idea of a glossary id really for reference but in my case it would be slightly different and thats why I wanted it all on one page.

    It seems I have three options:
    Use Purple numbers (can't find the link)
    Have seperate posts for each entry.
    Use a wiki..

    At this point I think I will go for the seperate entry, then at least I can combine it with phphGiggle.

    BTW, I love your username. Do you do Yoga on a boat?
