Anchor and Querystring Parameters in IE
I am on a development team and we came across something that I do not know
if it is an IE bug or if we need to redesign our query strings in the URL.
The issue we have is that IE is not recognizing any querystring parameters
if the URL has an anchor destination in it. Netscape has no problem with
For example, let our URL be:
The anchor is: #ID34 (which refers to the message with ID of 34)
The quertstring parameters are:
1) ClubsID with value 2
2) TopicsID with value 27.
The end result that is trying to be reached is to come to the messages.html
page that list messages only for topic with ID of 27 and club with ID of
2 ,and then within that page, have the browser go to the message with ID
of 34. The problem that is happening is that IE does not recognize the query
string parameters (ClubsID and TopicsID) unless I take out "#ID34". I also
notice that unless I take out the querystring (everything after the "?"),
the anchor does not work either. So, I can have:
BUT I cannot have both. Again, Netscape has no problem with this, but IE
does. And we need to have both the anchor and the querystrings within the
same URL. Help!
