With such a large image on the site, when the user clicks to go to a page or post, they cannot tell that the selected page or post displays without scrolling to it. How can I get such an “autoscroll” to work in Kahuna? I don’t want to have to make the main image less deep just for this purpose. Thanks.

I found a plugin that seems to be working, but it is slow so far–or perhaps I should say I’ve not found a way to speed it up yet. The plugin is “Page scroll to id.” It requires that every menu item be set as a custom link. If anyone on this forum knows how to speed it up, please let me know, and thanks.

Second update to this: The plugin was too complex for me to understand and for my needs seemed slow, though other users were praising it highly. However, through experimenting, I discovered that “/#primary” (without the quotation marks) appended to a page/post permalink works, triggering scrolling down to the page/post. So everything specified in the menu as a custom link ending in /#primary works, presumably because there is some coding associated with menus that preserves # as # instead of replacing it with %23. But when a post on a category page is accessed by clicking a Read More link on the excerpt, the # in the link is changed to %23. I can’t find a way to get around this. Nothing in Settings > Permalinks helps (# gets stripped out); I can’t find a plug-in that will do it. So, does somebody know enough to tell a newbie what to put in a function that would work to preserve # as #?February 27th, 2018 at 23:30 #60320ZedCryout Creations Team
The theme already supports in-page links (since this is something the browser and HTML standards specify and not theme-dependent). You need to use content links in your menu items (and a custom menu, as you found out) for these to work, like
#my-custom-linkto point to an anchor defined in the content:
[...] <a id="my-custom-link"> </a> [...]
or any other tag with an unique id associated to it:
[...] <h3 id="my-custom-link">Section Title</h3> [...]February 28th, 2018 at 03:45 #60327
Thank you for replying, Keymaster. The problem that remained after I solved initial stuff by adding /#primary was with category pages, where you don’t set the Read More link manually. So every time the user selects one of these (for example at http://settingForth.pub > Help Me Write > Self-Help > category page display) the page reloads, goes to the top, and all that displays is the image.
I have found a workaround that I’m implementing now. It’s a plugin called Collapse-o-Matic that initially loads the entirety of each page/post, but with a specified portion hiddne. The user then clicks to display the hidden portion, and no reload takes place. This may cause a category page to load less quickly, so I’ll need to specify that fewer posts load, but that’s easy.
If there is a solution to this problem that I can make work on a category page, this will save me the trouble of having to open almost 100 posts and manually specify the portion of each that is to be hidden.
I would think that the solution to this should be included in an upgrade to Kahuna; it does seem an obvious need.

Problem solved. In a child theme, in includes > loop.php, line 35, add /#primary, like this:

As I have answered through our support system, I strongly recommend using a child theme for this customization, otherwise it will be lost with the next update.
