Does anyone know if you're able to create an anchor link to a specific tab within a menu block? I have 4 tabs under a service menu using the menu block and it'd be great to link to the specific tabs.

TIA!

@tuanphanLooking to see if you can help me with the following: I want to link directly to this page so that it goes to the service menu, and shows the "BROWS" tab.

I would like to have a QR code that goes directly to a brunch menu page for our restaurant

The tabbed panels within a Menu Block do not have an ID that you can jump to like an anchor, so it is not possible to link directly to one of them using a link or QR code.

Instead they are selected using JavaScript which means you'd need some custom JavaScript to be written that selects the relevant tab panel when a visitor users a specific URL query. It's possible to do, but we'd need more information about the site

Hey @paul2009 does this mean a website would need custom code written for each anchor link/ tab instance or is there a way to create a universal system?

I have 4 tabs on the below page, each with a custom ID I thought could be used as an anchor link. Website example: https://beehyve.squarespace.com/adhd-support

 

I'm trying to learn JS, do you think it would be possible to create something like this: 

  • On load check url
  • if url contains #
  • get name after # (variable)
  • Find ID on page that matches (variable)
  • Trigger click action

And that would open selected tab.

Thanks!

@paul2009 thanks for the suggestion, that's exactly the kind of thing I want!

Unfortunately it only seems to work when the tab buttons, targets, and content are all in the same section, not in multiple sections like Squarespace. Is there anyway around this?
