    I went back to some older pages, and when I tried to use the footnote anchors they all now point to "http://www.obsidianportal.com/#fn1" or "http://www.obsidianportal.com/#fn2" et cetera. These footnote anchors worked fine throughout 2008.

    This occurs in Windows XP for both Firefox 3.0.4 and IE 6.0.2900.2180.xpsp_sp2_gdr.080814-1233 versions.

    Here's a partial list of pages with broken footnote anchors:

    Figment,

    I'm not really seeing the problem, can you explain in more detail? I can't find any links to “http://www.obsidianportal.com/#fn1” or “http://www.obsidianportal.com/#fn2”

    Thanks,
    Ryan

    Ryan,

    Footnote anchors are Textile hyperlinks links within a single wiki page. As an example, lets look at http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/the-legion-of-centicles/wikis/witch

    The first line of the page looks like:

    h4. Witch[1] Base Class.

    You'll note that the footnote formats correctly as a superscript link. However, the link no longer goes to its anchor near the bottom of the page:

    fn1. "_Dungeon Master's Guide_":http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/dndcore/177520000 p. 175

    These footnote anchors worked last year. Now, they don't work in any campaigns. I hope this example is illustrative enough.

    Thanks,
    Figment
