Anchor tags from main menu (one-page site)
I have another issue -
I'm trying to use anchor links to scroll to sections, but its not working - I have tried this method
and also via the page editor > right click > edit html class and id > id.
In both cases I have added a custom link in the menu with the id #lokaleveranstalter in the url.
Either way, when I click on the menu item it opens a new window to the URL and doesn't scroll to the section. If I enter the full URL with anchor link and press enter whilst the page has already loaded, it teleports to that section.
How can I stop the new tab opening and is there a way to make the transition a little more fluid?
This thread is close to what I want to do, but I'm not sure how to integrate the functionality into the menu items.
Can you help with this?
in the first example you showed, there is a jQuery code which you also need to use?
Did you use that?
thanks so much for getting back to me. Unfortunately (fortunately?) we decided against a menu all together since the page was so short.
If I get time I will test out what you suggested. But for now the page has gone live without a menu!
sure. no problem.
Have a good day!
Hi @mariusjopen ! I am also trying to get a custom link to an anchor on a one-pager to stop opening in a new window. I know I need to get Lay Theme to remove the "target=_blank" part of the created <a> tag, but how do I accomplish this ?
Anchor linking to site sections in the footer works just fine: the transition is smooth and joyful.
PS: I have 'Link Target' selected in 'Screen Options', but unchecking the 'Open link in new tab' box is not doing the trick.
PPS: The info@laytheme email isn't working, and I still need my registration key. Posted about this in General Discussion a couple days ago.
Thanks for the help !
yes. I was able to reproduce this.
The link always opens in a new window.
There is the option to do that with jQuery. But I think that this should work in general.
I will talk with Armin about it.
In Lay Options disable "Menu links of type "Custom Links" always open in new tab"
Before you post
Use the Search Feature. Maybe there is already a solution to your issue.
1. Update Lay Theme and all Lay Theme Addons
2. Disable all Plugins
3. Go to Lay Options → Custom CSS & HTML, click "Turn Off All Custom Code ", click "Save Changes"
4. Now see if your problem solved itself
5. Go here, see if your problem is listed here:
When you post:
1. Post a link to where the problem is
2. If the problem is difficult to explain, post screenshots / link to a video to explain it
