I don’t think that the Phoenix path helpers will let you define anchors in order to generate the final path, just parameters, so maybe a quick and simple (although not quite elegant) solution could be to create the links with something like this:

<%= link("Some text", to: "#{your_helper_path(@conn, :show, ELEMENT_ID, param1: param1, param2: param2, ...)}#your_anchor", class: "...") %>

Thanks @dreamingechoes
I need it inside my controller. I have something similar to the code below

conn |> redirect(to: review_path(conn, :view, review.slug,

And i want to be able to add the anchor in the the redirect.

Is it possible? Or how can i achieve this.

Thanks @dreamingechoes, i was able to adapt your code to my use case and it worked pretty well. Thanks immensely. I appreciate!

God bless you in Jesus name, Amen.

For anyone else:

conn |> redirect(to: "#{review_path(conn, :view, review.slug,}#blahanchor")


conn |> redirect(to: review_path(conn, :view, review.slug,<>"#blahanchor")

Apologies for the late response @papakay, I was busy at work :pensive: And thank you very much @OvermindDL1, that’s exactly what I was going to reply :blush::pray:


Remember though, that using a fragment in an absolute URI is not allowed per RFC 3986.

So your clients behaviour is unspecified.

If you wanna be more explicit about what you’re doing you can use URI.

conn |> redirect(to: conn |> review_path(:view, review.slug, |> URI.parse() |> Map.put(:fragment, "blahanchor") |> URI.to_string())
