Jump Link to a specific page in another issue

Since it is currently possible to have jump links direct users to another issue using "internal://issue/<IssueID>" which jumps to the first page (cover) of this issue. It would also be nice to be able to jump link to a specific page,vertical, object ID etc of another issue. This way you could be more specific in using this feature. if you want to jump to another issue it may be so that you can get them to another article, or ad or something more specific than just the cover of the issue.

Hi Mike - 

This should be possible currently if you use the URL format: internal://issue/<issueID>/<verticalID>/<objectID>. If you don't link to a specific object, it should go to the top of the vertical.

It looks like it currently is not possible according to the development team. I previously submitted a request to the support team and received this reply:

"Per our development team, this is currently not an option, and that article (  http://support.magplus.com/entries/20838568) has been updated to reflect that, as this was a mistake on our part with the documentation. You can only move to another issue (internal://issue/<IssueID> or <GUID>), which will load on the first vertical (the cover).

So, anyway just wanted to submit a feature request that it would be great to have things work this way.

Cheers!

Mike

D'oh! Egg on my face - let me follow up with the devs and see when we can get this back in.

Yes, we'd like to see this as well--the integrated Store & Library in 5.0 allows us to leverage banners like never before, and we'd love to be able to send users to specific content from them.

 

Thanks!

Apologies for digging up an old thread, but did this functionality ever get implemented? Many of our client's verticals are too big to fit into one issue, so we need to split them up. Ideally we'd really like to be able to have the user follow a jump link to the new issue, then at the end of that "sub-issue" follow another jump link to return to the same spot in the one they left.
