Anchor Tag Help W/PHP

Jul 16, 2005

I'm using PHP and while this is an HTML question, I'm looking for a
PHP answer please - I've got several anchors similar to the one shown
below - I'm calling a dispatcher.php script and I need to be able to
determine which anchor was clicked on even tho they will all call the
same dispatcher.php script - in PHP can I detect which anchor was
clicked on once I'm in the dispatcher script?

<A HREF="dispatcher.php">2</A>

Redirect With Anchor Tag In IE

The following PHP code snippet works in Firefox and Opera but NOT
Internet Explorer (I'm using IE v 6.0.2xxx)

Any thoughts on a workaround?

Getting Anchor Name With Regex?

I need to capture the name of an anchor html tag with regex and php so from text I will get "hello" (the name of the anchor)

Tried that:

$regex = '/(?<=name=")#([^]+?)#(?=")/i';
preg_match_all($regex, $content, $data);

I've tailed the apache error log to find out that:

PHP Warning: preg_match_all(): Compilation failed: missing terminating ] for character class at offset 26

also tried:

$regex = '/(?<=name=")([^]+?)(?=")/i';
$regex = '/(?<=name=")[^]+?(?=")/i';

which are basically the same. I guess I'm missing something, probably a silly slash or something like that but I'm not sure as to what

Jumping To Anchor After Submit

i have a form with lots of data, and when they click on a button it
calls some javascript which sets values in hidden fields then posts to
itself (usual stuff)

now the problem is that i would like to bring the page back to the
same spot after the submit (as its very long)

Ive added anchors to each button but if i add a the anchor tag to the
action part of the form, im always one click behind, ie it jumps to
the one I clicked on before. ive tried using location header etc
calling itself and appending #anchorname to the end of the url, but
then i lose the data in the form, as no $_requests have data any more.

so what i need is when you hit a button, sumit the page && go to the
correct anchor. is this possible

Dynamic Anchor Based On Last Name

I have a MySQL database that hold the list of employees. I display the page using PHP. All of this works great, I sort by last name ascending so the list is A-Z.

Here is what I want to do.

At the top of the page I want to list each letter of the alphabet and have it as a link. From that link (lets say "G") when I click on G it jumps to the first employee that has a last name that starts with G (staying on the same page)

Is there some way to create a dynamic anchor that would jump to a specific areas based on how the alphabet link was coded?

below code is creating menu like this shown about.the only one thing i need to have is that i want to put <anchor tag when it add products during execution or product4 should be in anchor tag etc.
global $menu_array;
running query
$result = mysql_query("SELECT * FROM `tblcatagory`");

fetch rows to show like tree
while ( $row = mysql_fetch_assoc($result) )
$menu_array[$row['cat_id']] = array('Categoryid'=> $row['cat_id'],'name' => $row['cat_name'],'parent' => $row['parent']);
recursive function that prints categories as a nested html unorderd list
function generate_menu($parent)

this prevents printing 'ul' if we don't have subcategories for this category make array global
global $menu_array;
use global array variable instead of a local variable to lower stack memory requierment
foreach($menu_array as $key => $value) {
if ($value['parent'] == $parent)
{ if this is the first child print '<ul>' if ($has_childs === false) {
don't print '<ul>' multiple

Test If An Anchor In URL Exists And To Get Its Value

I was wondering how to test for an anchor in the URL and to get its value.

Most URLs look something like this:


But sometimes an anchor is appended to the URL:


The reason I am asking is because on my forum I want members to be able to send links to posts. To be able to do that, I need to send an anchor. However, the issue lies in that members may have different display settings so they'll be displaying a different number of posts per page than perhaps the person sending the link.

If the link sent is to the 21st post, but the person receiving it is displaying 20 posts per page, then it would be on the second page.

What I am looking to achieve is:

1) Test for an anchor's presence. If it's not there then don't worry about it.
2) If it's there, get its value and determine which post it is.
3) Once the post is determined, determine which page the post is on.
4) Once that is determined, direct the user there.

Unless there's a completely different (and easier) method of doing this.

Add Anchor Tag To URL From Text Input?

I want to be able to take user inputted text in a comment field and check for URL type expression, and if it exists, add an anchor tag (to url) when the comment is displayed.

I am using PHP on the server-side, and Javascript (with jQuery) on client, so should I wait to check for URL until right before it is displayed? Or add the anchor tag before inserting it in the database?


<textarea id="comment">check out or or</textarea>


<div id="commentDisplay">check out <a href=""></a> or <a href=""></a> or <a href=""></a></div>

Get Anchor Text Using DomDocument?

Say I have this html:

<a href="">Test</a>

I parse it using dom document with this code:

$dom = new DomDocument();
$urls = $dom->getElementsByTagName('a');

And then I run this code:

foreach ($urls as $url)
//echo "<br> {$url->getAttribute('href')} , {$url->getAttribute('title')}";
foreach ($url->attributes as $a)
echo "<br>$a->name is $a->value";
echo "<hr><br>";

When I do this, I only see 'href' as an attribute of the url, there's no way to get the 'anchor text' (in the above case 'Test'). How can I get the anchor text of the link?
