    Thank you for creating this thread.

    The issue is caused by a name attribute that is being stripped on the online forms.

    <a name="anchor_name"

    I have attached a bug report ticket to this thread and escalated it to our Development Team.

    We will get back to you once we have any updates on this.

    Hello abcmanagement,

    This bug is now fixed.  You should be able to use name attributes in your anchor tags.

    If you have other questions or concerns, please do let us know.
