[thelist] PHP and anchor link problem

I see two problems.

1) The bookmark is not a PHP variable.  It gets added to the end of the
complete URL, after any PHP variables that might be needed.  And you have to
start your variable list with ? instead of &.  So the link would be:
Instead of:

2) All of your anchors seem to have the same name attribute (ie, name="1").
Although I assume this is just an in-work page, so that might explain that.

Hello all!

 I'm having an issue with a page that is supposed to be displaying the
sections of a library policy manual for the library at which I work. The
is that the entire manual is databased, and the initial PHP page lists the
various manuals available. From there, the user can click on a set of
and get a list of all of the policies that are in that manual, first listed
as a
set of internal anchors, then the policies themselves. The theory is that
you click on the section name, you will jump down to the appropriate section
that document. Because the policy manual ID is coming through over the URL,
having problems with this. The page that I've set up so far is at
http://www.mrrl.org/admin/policies.php. It calls the sections.php page which
does what it's supposed to, but then when I click on an internal anchor, I
the ID variable. Any ideas on how to get around this?? Thanks,
