    okay, stupid question.....

    when you put a link on your webpage that fowards you to a spot farther down that page, it's called a meta tag right?

    if i'm right, will you please refresh my memory on to use (ie: the code)

    Meta tags are hidden code that search engines look at. What you're thinking of is an anchor.

    i used to use them a long time ago, but stop having the need for them. now i have the need for them, but can't remember how to do it. all i want to do is put a url at the top of a page and have it skip farther down the page.

    To define the anchor:
    Code:
    <a name="wherever" />
    To jump to it:
    Code:
    <a href="#whatver">...</a>

    Ahh Easy fix.

    Say you have some cell down the page that's something like:
    <td>look at my supercool cell</td>

    just add a
    <td id="supercool">look at my supercool cell</td>

    and then when you type in the address, instead of http://mysite.com/mypage.html you put http://mysite.com/mypage.html#supercool

    mysite.com is a big spam-redirect site I think...hence the reason it worked. Good to use example.com .org or .net as they've been registered for this sort of thing.

    Brak, I don't think that'd work. Simply put <a name=supercool></a> in the cell...it won't be visable to anyone except the browser when the person then tries to go to mypage.html#supercool I don't think id will work
