Dear Doles,

What you are referring to are internal "links", and this is exactly what I was saying is a nightmare for the conversion process. Yes I have thought about opening new windows or tabs, its not hard, but I have seen novices with 25 browser windows open. As it is, if you place your mouse on that link, and use the right mouse button, you can always open in a new window, by taking that option. Many years ago I deliberately changed the way links are shown, and got rid of the underline. So thats why perhaps some people do not recognise them. I am unsure how the designer has coded links, but no doubt will soon see.

But my site also has a large number of what are called "anchors" where the link opens not the general page, but a specific paragraph. Thats a challenge too to convert, but I think we have found a module to allow that.

Yes I know you can chase your tail till you can't see your head anymore on my site, and find a page that you may never find again. To some limited extent I think thats part of the "fun"?

Yes guys, I should've disclaimed to have known about this but simply never actually taken time to do that. So the joke's on me on this one :D . But on a more serious note, I hope whatever your changes are, it will be to make the site even better than it already is.

Blessings To All!
