[Resolved] Ultimate Tinymce Anchor button not working

  • I have a large pic at the top of my site on each page. When clicking on a button under the pic to go to another page it appears nothing happens. Although the page has changed it does not appear so. I would like customers to be able to click on a page button and it takes them to a lower point on each page in lieu of seeing the same thing. I installed an anchor button on a page exactly how the instructions indicated but it doesn’t work. Does anyone know of a simple solution so that my customers know they have went to a new page. I’ve also reduced the size of the pic so that at least they see the new pages title but I know there must be a better way….please help. thanks, Russ

    What is the url to the page where this is happening?

    I’m not sure I completely understand what you are attempting to do… but are you aware the anchors work ONLY for linking to content within the same page. Currently, the anchor will not link to another page… only content within the same page.

    Are you trying to use the anchors to link to content in other posts/pages?

    Hi Josh. Thanks for helping! What i’m trying to do is this: when someone clicks on a button, for example, Tires(in the Automobile category) the Tires page pops up…but, all the customer sees is the main pic, the category buttons, and “Tires”. I want to set the anchor so that when they click on the category or sub-category button they will automatically go from whatever page they are on….to….the middle(or anywhere else I designate) of the “Tire” page. The instructions on the settings page of the Ultimate Tinymce Anchor button page do not appear to be complete unless what I’m trying to do is just not possible.

    Ooops, here is the url http://zaksmall.com/automobile/tires/

    Okay. As I said previously, Ultimate Tinymce won’t currently link to content outside of the page the anchor is created.

    Ultimate Tinymce will ONLY link to an anchor placed on the same page as the link.

    Give this article a quick read and see if it might help you.

    My pleasure.

    Please do let me know if you still would like some help getting it working properly.

    Hey Josh, Do you know how to reduce the blank space area between the bottom of where my category buttons are and the title of each page, or know of someone who might know? OR, have any ideas how I can make the area below my title page to show up better? thanks, Russ

    This should work in your stylesheet:

    .hentry {
        margin-top: -80px;
    }

    You might want to adjust the -80px.

    Thanks for all the help Josh but the stylesheet is massive and rather intimidating to me. There is only one area where I think the adaptation could be made….it’s on the #main page and currently says this:

    .page-title a {
    font-size: 12px;
    font-weight: bold;
    letter-spacing: 0;
    text-transform: none;
    }
    .hentry,
    .no-results {
    border-bottom: 1px solid #ddd;
    margin: 0 0 1.625em;
    padding: 0 0 1.625em;
    position: relative;
    }
    .hentry:last-child,
    .no-results {
    border-bottom: none;
    }
    .blog .sticky .entry-header .entry-meta {
    clip: rect(1px 1px 1px 1px); /* IE6, IE7 */
    clip: rect(1px, 1px, 1px, 1px);
    position: absolute !important;
    }

    Am I in the right area? Can I just delete some of the above and put in your suggested code?

    Your help is above and beyond and I really appreciate it. Russ

    No worries, Russ.

    Actually, you don’t want to modify any of your core WordPress or Theme files. The reason is that when you update, all your modifications will be over-written… because the files get replaced.

    So, using a child theme is CRUCIAL for preserving changes to your website… and protecting them from updates.

    See this page for more on setting up a child theme:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Child_Themes

    Then, you can just add code to the child theme’s stylesheet, and it automatically gets added to your themes stylesheet when pages get loaded. Additionally, the files in your child theme will NEVER be over-written… so you are safe to update and keep your modifications.
