I'm having issues with using anchors in my URLs. For example, I have a url http://myurlhere.com/page#anchor, the site fails to go to the anchor. Has anyone experienced this issue?

Edit: When I'm testing on local, the local URLs + anchor tags work, but when I test on my production servers, UTM tags are being added to the URLs, and the anchors seem to be ignored and not appended. I tried manually editing the URLs to include the UTM tags, but duplicate UTM tags are then appended to the URL.

Assuming that the anchor does actually exist on the page (always double check) and the URL is correct when the page loads, the only two things it could be are a browser problem or JavaScript is resetting your scroll position. After checking on a couple of different browsers start going through your JavaScript plugins and the code you have written yourself to see what the culpret is.

Anchor-links will not work when followed by UTM-tags or other parameters. Most probably you will break your UTM-tags when appending it to an anchor.

You will have no other possibility than to add the anchor-link at the end of the UTM-parameters.
