I have a test topic set up at TWiki:Sandbox/VbTest1.

It contains

  • 4 anchors, #AnchorOne, #AnchorTwo, #AnchorThree, #AnchorFour
  • code to check the value of a URLPARAM named var
  • enough body content to make the page long enough that jumping to an anchor is obvious.

If you access the page as http:.../view/Sandbox/VbTest1#AnchorFour
Then you jump to the 4th paragraph.

If you access the page as http:.../view/Sandbox/VbTest1?var=42
Then %URLPARAM{"var"}% is seen and the value is displayed

If you access the page as http:.../view/Sandbox/VbTest1#AnchorFour?var=12
Then neither the anchor jump nor the URLPARAM is recognized or triggered.

Per RFC-(did-not-it-lookup) you need to write:

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2011-08-06

...which works as expected.
