location.hash question

Hi,

Here is my relevant code for an arbitrary page (let's call it PAGE_B):
<body onload="window. location.hash=' anchor';">

With this code, if the user goes from PAGE_A to PAGE_B, he will jump to
PAGE_B#anchor after PAGE_B has fully loaded. BUT... if he clicks the
back button, instead of returning to PAGE_A (which is what I want), he
will return to PAGE_B (without the anchor).

Is there any way to change this behavior... perhaps to replace the
anchor of page without touching the history stack?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
David

window.location .replace(window .location.href + '#the_hash');

Depending on your requirements, you may need something more
sophisticated, such as:

window.location .replace(
window.location .href +
(window.locatio n.search ? window.location .search : '') +
'#the_hash'
);

Does anyone know if there are any browsers where you must specify "#" as a prefix when setting the hash for the location? For example, the following would move to the intro section of the document: window.location.hash = "#intro"; But in the same browser, this would not work:

Hi, A page I have shows a different background colour depending on the hash portion of the url as it is first loaded. For example a link to mysite/mypage#0000FF would result in a page with a blue background.

Basically, my problem is exactly as described in the subject. The problem is somewhat intermittent and unpredictable, but the majority of the time if I just have a statement such as window.onload=location.hash('somewhere'); the URL is indeed appended, i.e. www.example.com/index.php#somewhere, but window itself doesn't actually move to...

Hi Everyone, I understand in many cases, adding to history when updating window.location.hash is a GOOD thing. In my case, I want to update bookmarkability from javascript (post-load), but can't get it to do so without adding a record to history. (Firefox 3.0.3) I know it's possible to do, because Google is doing it. See this URL:...
