    Default Anchor links and tags

    Hello,

    I am trying to create a video library that will have anchors and links from an index. The index and the videos will be on the same page.

    I found this thread but am not sure how to insert into a page and what to change.

    On the fact that contao uses the base tag in HEAD
    HTML Code:
    <base href="http://example.org/">
    a hash like #myId isn't enough. You additionaly have to use the actual page (folder) name. For this to achieve you can use the insert tag {{env::request}} (what is this and what do I need from my site)
    Code:
    {{env::request}}#myId
    The rest is as in every HTML-page: your link
    HTML Code:
    <a href="my-page.html#myId">myId</a>
    leads to an element with the ID "myId" on that page.

    Here is the link https://community.contao.org/en/show...-to-link-Image

    I'm sure it is very simple but I could use some direction.

    Thanks for you help in advance.

    Please show a link to a page so we can see what you have done so far.

    {{env::request}} is an insert tag that gets resolved from Contao with the actual page alias e.g. "contact.html". You can use it within the BE or in Templates.

    Yes, this is the better way for templates, but you also can use insert tags in templates. You can not use PHP code in BE.

    An it needs a correction
    Code:
    href="<?= \Environment::get('relativeRequest') ?>#anchor"
