Open Links in Iframe


New member
For about 23 years I have used "local" HTML with a little javascript to keep notes on many things. My sites have an index of links displaying on the left side of the page that target an iframe (named "content"). The iframe displays on the right side of the page. Most links open within the iframe.

When Explorer went away, the links (pages) still open in the iframe, but they do not “land”at the ID location. I have to scroll up or down to find the specific information I need. This is very frustrating.

My index links are written as follows:

<a class="index1" href="aa_HTML-Page_.htm#Linkname1" target="content">Linkname1</a><br>

I have always used "#Name of ID" to take me to a specific location on the page loaded in the iframe. Since Explorer went away, I can't get it to work like that.

The id attribute in any page loaded in the Iframe are written as follows:

<h2 id="Linkname1" class="left">Linkname1</h2>

The links to any page work and load the page, but links to IDs (specific locations) do not work.

I rely heavily on these web pages for organizing information about jobs, programs, hobbies and other. Help is much needed.
