Support » Plugin: Page scroll to id » Issue with acute character anchor

  • Resolved larnoult


    I’m using a plugin to generate automatically anchors, based on title name. So I end up with elements like
    <h2 id="7-le-jeu-o%C3%B9-est-pelico-">Le jeu «&nbsp;Où est Pelico ?&nbsp;»</h2>
    I’d like to use your plugin to provide smooth scrolling to this type of anchor. So far, this type of anchor crashes your plugin:

    Uncaught Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: .nav-tabs a[href=#6-notre-monde-lapp-qui-cr%C3%A9e-le-vivre-ensemble-de-demain]

        at new a.fn.init (jquery-migrate.min.js?ver=1.4.1:2)
        at n (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4-wp:2)

    Any idea on how to solve that?

    This is known issue. I’d suggest to avoid meta characters like % in URLs but since you use a plugin, I guess this isn’t possible.

    I have a fix for this issue but it’s not published yet. If you have time I can tell you how to fix it manually or better yet send you a plugin file to replace.

    Do you want to contact me via email?

    I’ve updated plugins development version with the fix for this issue.
    You can download the development version and replace the one you have installed:

    You can continue using the development version as you would with any other standard version. When plugin’s next version is released (1.6.7) you’ll be able to update it as you do with any plugin (the next version will contain the same fix).

    FYI “Page scroll to id” development version is just a pre-release which usually contains bug fixes and/or features that will be included in future releases 😉

    Let me know if it works or if you need more help
