Default Making anchor tags (internal page linking) work with Clean URLs?

Hey all,

A problem I've just encountered is that anchor tags aren't working correctly and I think this is related to using clean urls.

For example, when viewing a product, I want to have a link that says "Jump to Reviews" above the fold which would link like this <a href="#reviews">Jump to Reviews</a> And right near the beginning of my reviews section down the page is <a name="reviews></a>Customer Reviews ...

With clean urls, instead of the link being interpreted as http://www.mydomain.com/current-page.html#reviews it's http://www.mydomain.com/#reviews. Also, if I go ahead and hard code it as <a href="{$http_location}/{$product.clean_url}.html#reviews> the page refreshes then jumps down instead of jumping down directly.

Any ideas of a workaround?

Use <a href="current-page.html#reviews">. For product page for example use it like this

<a href="product.php?productid={$product.productid}#r eviews">Reviews</a>
