My client would like some links in the menu for a "Sights and Sounds" page in the menu that would point to anchors on the page for specific content. When click in the menu, it doesn't go to the anchor... just the page. Am I missing something very obvious here?

How are you creating the anchor links in the menu? Are you using a custom menu?

Yes, using the custom menu link.

What are the anchor links you're using?

It appears to be an issue in Safari. Works fine in Firefox, just not in safari.

Apparently taking the www out of the link, and adding a forward slash before the anchor's hashtag solves it. Also, using id instead of name.

I never use Safari so I wouldn't have known this, but apparently Safari does not respond well to anchor links because of the code used. I did some research and found this thread:
