link into PDF ?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Rafal 'Raf256' Maj, Feb 6, 2004.

  1. Hi,
    I have an .pdf document as a file i.e. manual.pdf

    To open it in browser I just write <a href="manual.pdf>xxx</a>.

    But - is it possible to hae a link that goes directly into specyfic page
    and/or chapter?

    I.e. something like href="manual.pdf#page-43" or #-chapter-4.1 etc.?

    In *your* browser maybe, but the default action in my browser and many
    other's will be to save the PDF to disk. What happens with the file
    depends entirely on the configuration of the browser.

    No. As I say, the action depends on the configuration of the browser, so
    even if there were a way of doing this it would probably only work for a
    handful of browsers.

    PHP has all sorts of functions for working with, even extracting parts
    of pdf files.
