Quite some time ago, I used a browser extension called TLDRify that allowed me to highlight some text on a web page, and it would create a link I could share that would jump a person directly to the text I had highlighted. It was a way to both create an anchor link when one didn't exist, but with the added benefit of highlighting the block of text you wanted someone to see. At some point I stopped using it because several browsers threw up scary warnings to the clickee that they were being redirected to a different site, which is true, in that TLDRify actually shows your desired content on a different URL (tldrify.com).
The other day, my friend Peter posted about something called URL Scroll-To-Text Fragment, and it looked promising enough to explore. In my explorations, I think I've learned that TLDRify seems to be working well enough again that I'll likely start with that, but you may be interested in figuring out if either of these solutions might be useful to you. It seems that different browsers may play more nicely with one or the other, with Chrome possibly being the best bet, but I have gotten both link types to work across Windows and macOS, on Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari and Edge.
The "fix" to TLDRify is that now all the browsers that are warning about the link are doing so by displaying the following at the top of the page, but otherwise the link works as desired.
So here are some links to try - how do they work for you?
- This one, created with TLDRify, should jump you to the final line of text on a page detailing MPOW's Travel Loaner Device Program.
- This one is way uglier as hyperlinks look, but you can't tell since it's still embedded as a link. It was created with the Scroll To Text bookmarklet described at the Supple.com website.
- The Link to Text Fragment add-on for Firefox creates an identical type of link, but does so with a right mouse click after highlighting the text. This solution seemed the most finicky in that it didn't always actually create the link I wanted.
