Inaccessible anchors in the special preferences page
Closed, ResolvedPublic



Some anchors in the 'Special:Preferences page are not accessible.

For instance, when I go toécial:Préférences#mw-htmlform-signature , the link will work, because it's an anchor for the preselected tab; whereas the linkécial:Préférences#mw-input-wpgadgets-DeluxeHistory won't work because the anchor doesn't link to a section of a tab selected by default.

Someone told me that could be fixed with JavaScript looking for that ID and, if it's on a hidden tab, switch to that tab and then navigate to it.

Thanks by advance

You can use a anchor to preselect the correct tabécial:Préférences#mw-prefsection-gadgets

At the moment you cannot link to a specific option in that tab.

I know that. I hope we can link to the options in the future. Regards.
