Tutorial: Links in Readymag

New tutorial is out! Learn how to create and customize links in Readymag.

Links can be added to texts, images, shapes, hotspots and buttons.

cool tutorial.
But a technical question: Have your devs changed the link “behaviour” if you are linking to another page inside the Readymag page? Before: If you go back to a page you have already visited and already scrolled down, you will start on from where you have already scrolled. Now the page starts again at the top. I managed to build a script, that the scrollposition get saved and set again to the right scrollamount, but I think the old behaviour was more practical and regarding a good UX more logical.

Imagine you have a portfolio site with horizontal pageorder and have the first page as overview of your work and the user can click on a “project” and will be directed to (for example) the thrid page. If the user goes back to the overview via a link on this page, the user has to start from the top again.
In my oppinion this is not really ideal. Especially as the custom-code work around to “scroll to” top on a link click (the old way around) was more easy to implement as a logiv to save the scrollposition etc.

Or let the user decide via a button in your interface how this should be handled on each link.

You are right, the behaviour was changed. Honestly it just didn’t work as intended and there were a lot of complaints on this topic.

The option to show the pages at the same place after returning exists: try to set ‘Go back’ option for these cases

Shame you didn’t add the ability to add custom attributes like “download.” I had to ditch a feature on a recent project because this wasn’t possible without custom hacks.

Hey! What type of files are you meaning?

My use case was adding a download attribute to ensure the file (in my case an image) was prompted to be saved rather than opening up in a new tab, but we’re also missing the ability to add other attributes and aria-labels for accessibility.
