I have a contact form set up with Freeform and when having inline errors, I would like to return to an anchor on the page, since my form is on the bottom of the page.

I tried setting inline_error_return="#contact-form", but it doesn't even add the hash to the url.

Hope someone can help me out.

I think inline_error_return is the way to go, but maybe you need a complete url there, not just the anchor. In a recent site I did, I have inline_error_return="{page_url}/#job-apply-form" which works.

  • Yes, you need the URL or segments as well as the anchor in inline_error_return="", eg. inline_error_return="template_group/template#anchor". Keep in mind that the page is reloaded with the inline errors, so the anchor behaviour is a bit different from the classic way of clicking a link going to an anchor on the same page.

  • A really late addition - You can use inline_error_return="{current_url}/#anchor" too. Handy if your form is outside the channel entries loop.
