Anchor tag in Collage Landscape gallery

When switching my gallery to Collage Landscape I cannot get anchor tags in HTML to work.
As I use large galleries sometimes I do like the new Collage Landscape layout and I would like to use HTML links in the Description of the gallery to enable "fast forward" or chapters in my gallery.

It's no problem to link to any photo in the gallery of course but that just brings up that picture. When exit photo view, gallery goes back to top...
What I really would like is that the browser "scrolls down" to the photo in gallery mode with the thumbnails.

Much like the HTML anchor tag (like #Name)...
Is there a workaround for this (I'm a SM Basic member so no customizing enable)?

Regards
Andreas

    Hi Andreas,

    HTML coding cannot be done with the Basic account so if you'd like to use HTML we'd recommend upgrading to the Power level. This can be done in your Account Settings > Me icon > Subscription tab. Here click the "Change Plan" button to select another plan. You may be able to then add some HTML coding so that when a viewer exits the photo they are viewing, they are taken back to that photo's location in the gallery rather than the top of the gallery.

    Even with a Power account...

    I haven't seen a customization that would position the page within a collage landscape gallery.
    Maybe someone else has seen one; hopefully they will chime in here.

    I'm really missing this feature. It works just fine in old SmugMug style galleries, but thats not scrolling rather jumping to page X in gallery.

    Anyhow I used this frequently and I really like the new Collage Landscape layout, but a "scroll down" feature would be a great improvement. Now I have to instruct my visitors to "scroll to thumbnail nr 405..." for example.

    I raised this one back in April, but it didn't get much traction at the time. See http://dgrin.com/showthread.php?t=246284. I agree that this really holds back the utility of Collage Landscape, which otherwise strikes me as otherwise a very useful display type, especially with larger image sizes.

    Hi Jim,

    At this time HTML hyper links will not work within the captions for the, Thumbnail, Landscape or Portrait collage gallery styles. The hyper links will work with the Journal, and SmugMug galleries styles. As you already know they will also work in the lightbox. We apologize for any inconvenience.
