I have looked through the posts already about anchor tags and couldn't find an answer on how to fix my issue...

I have used this code <a name="user_A1”></a> as an anchor in my e-portfolio for almost a year and it still works on those pages (altering the "A1" for different anchors). Now when I try to use it in a new page it gets striped to <p>&nbsp;</p>

Any help?

Hi Simha,

I can still create HTML anchors using that code. Here's an example:

I am having this issue again of my anchor tags getting erased?

I have tried in both internet explorer and Firefox. I make my anchor tag in the HTML editor and save - the anchor appears. I save the text block and when I open it up again the html has been erased. This is such an essential thing to make navigation through large collections easy.

I think a simple anchor button in the text editor would be a nice addition (like they have in wikispaces). 

So I was using the anchor tag <a name="user_OVM1"></a> and after playing around a little, copying code from another anchor tag that was working and changing the ID

<p><a name="user_OVM1"></a></p>

it stayed.... I am unsure why.

Hi Simha,

Adding the 'Anchor' button to the text editor should be simple enough

I'll add a bug report for that:

Wow I am having a new issue with this anchor tag... before it was stripping just the anchor tag now it is now stripping the html link to the anchor, example.

I enter in - 

<a href="”><strong>Supporting Evidence</strong></a>

and it strips it to -

<a href=""><strong>Supporting evidence page</strong></a>
