Adding Anchors to Your CakePHP Generated Urls (#link)

This may seem simple and trivial, but it took me a little while to figure out. If it saves someone a little trial-and-error then great (I know I won't forget how to do it).
I needed to create a redirect in CakePHP that redirected to an inline, on-page anchor- <a name="destination">Scroll to Here</a>. Typing the link directly into the address bar of the browser, it would need to look like this: http://www.mainelydesign.com/blog/view/1219/#destination. The #destination is what I needed to figure out how to append to the redirected url. Turns out it was easy...
Use the Pound Sign (#) as a Key in Your Link Options
- echo $html->link('Click Me, Please', array('controller'=>'blog', 'action'=>'view', 1219, '#' => 'destination'));
or, Use the Pound Sign (#) as a Key in Your Redirect Call
- $this->redirect(array('controller'=>'blog', 'action'=>'view', 1219, '#'=>'destination'));
That was easy wasn't it? Note the '#'=>'destination'. Sometimes it's the easy things that can stop and make you think, though.
