Hi, I've been trying to get a link straight to the second page of a bootstrap project (the Dermatology Courses page). The internal link id is: xerte.cardiff.ac.uk/play_10277&linkID=PG1360232941652#

However when I try and link to this page externally, it just shows page 1 (the Virtual Dermatoscope page). Is there any way of doing this?

Many thanks!

Hi
do you mean you want an external link that goes direct to page 2? e.g. xerte.cardiff.ac.uk/play_10277#page2

That should work but will not go to the correct page if you then put a page between the first page and the current page 2 e.g. it will go to page 2 whatever page 2 is whereas if you've added an internal page link on page one to your Dermatology page and then move the Dermatology page the internal link should still work and go to the correct page.

In projects based on the XOT template you can use linkID as part of an external link parameter but at the moment with Bootstrap projects you can't so for now use #page2 and then if you change page order update the link accordingly.

Great, thanks, that does the trick! (I couldn't find any references to page numbers for some reason...)
