On our discourse powered website we have a separate section which links to certain headings using an anchor/hash in the url, https://mysite.com/my-page#faq
When a user follows this link, the url is updated to that value, but navigating further no longer updates the url.
Is there a reason why the hash prevents any url updates? This currently breaks our app after some links in our app, eg ‘understand.html#understand’
This behavior can also be seen on any discourse powered forum, with a minimal reproducible example below.
- go to https://meta.discourse.org/
- append #foo to the url, so: Discourse Meta - The Official Support Forum for Discourse
- Click on any topic, you will see the url does not update
Thanks in advance!
