The theme of my website inserts a navigation bar on the left-hand side of each page - the code to accomplish this is at the end of this message. This works great - except when a URL is extended with a hash or question mark (pagename/#foo or pagename/?foo).
I've done some experimenting to see when it will work and not work:
- Works - A hyperlink contains pagename/#foo. When this hyperlink is clicked, the page is loaded with a URL of pagename/#foo and the navigation bar appears.
- Does not Work - A page is loaded by typing pagename/#foo as the URL. The navigation bar is gone.
- Does not Work - A page is reloaded with pagename/#foo as the URL. The navigation bar is gone.
- Does not Work - A page is loaded by typing pagename/?foo, reloaded with a URL of pagename/?foo, or loaded from a hyperlink on another page linking to pagename/?foo.
I'm very new to WordPress - this website was not designed by me, but I will be charged with maintaining and adding to it, so I'm here to learn. Much thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Page Template Calls This
<?php // use wp_list_pages to display parent and all child pages all generations (a tree with parent) wp_nav_menu( array( 'theme_location' => 'medical', 'sort_column' => 'menu_order', 'container_id' => 'left_nav') ); ?>
