    I've been trying to make a contents for my iphone guides but I'm unsure on how to do it

    I know how to do the "[link="ladiblahblah"]blahblah[/link]

    But I'm confused as how to get it to link to part of my post, does anyone know how to get it to work

    I've read the bb code thread but it says that it's useless but tj managed to do it in that same thread

    Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to do this?

    Edit: WTF is orebody?

    They made it so that you can't use it, it only works with threads that already had it in if I remember correctly

    Code:
    [link=hey]test[/link]
    
    [anchor="hey"]test[/anchor]
    WOULD be the way to use it... but it doesn't work now

    You can't, Costello has disabled it.

    Apparently it broke posts, but in no way did it break any of my posts.

    The Thumb tag however, that very easily be used to break a posts. I wonder why Costello actually removed the anchor tag, they are very usefull in guides. A decent guide will attract people from other sites... heck, there's a guide in the Wii section which has had over a million views.

    Well, that's because you're not a MOD lol.

    They aren't going to allow any old Tom, Dick or Harry use HTML on here.

    Costello should bring back the anchor tags.
    They were very useful.

    I know there are several predefined anchors on the page such as top and bottom. I wonder if Costello disabled anchors because people were defining their own top and bottom anchors, overriding those already on the page.
