    1. NVTNHD   ‘‘section history additional’ ‘in reverse start order’:’ name…
      1. NVTNHS  now originally to next: present.
        1. NVTRVW  “per post name, add post to categories”
          1. NVTRZQ  ‘URL LGYMHK (2)’
          2. NVTRXJthis site’s documentation for its users NQBFBL (31)’
  3. NVTRI9 To reply & discuss, please use JotHere.com’s default methods (click) except: none.
  4. NVTRKV  table of contents overall for remainder: ‘definition’ + ‘post history additional’

  5. NVTN8C   ‘definition’(opening ‘a more powerful URL’)
    1. NVTKPR    is key for every web user to know, including as used by all better websites since the web originated.
    2. NVTKP0   is fast but tricky, including, do you know the tricks shared in this post?
      1. NVUZVR  if No, then one probably won’t know what’s wrong when it goes wrong,
      2. NVUZXE  if Yes, then in most cases, doing everything here should typically take you seconds.
    3. NVU2L5   means what the name says
      1. NVTNDC   where ‘a more powerful URL’
        1. NVV1PG  is a URL pointing to 1 or more:
          1. NVV1RQ   a particular location on a page, not just to the whole page
            1. NVV219   note many URLs and especially these can’t in general be made to be fast retyped by humans (though 1.JotHere’s are near ideal here), so practically must be at least semi-automatically entered.
          2. NVV1SD   to a page requiring being logged in to see its core especially pointed-to content
        2. NVV1QV   is used by all better websites as JotHere, Google docs, GitHub, and many many many more
        3. NVV1W7   are in use since the web originated (HTML 1.1, so 1990s) thru today
    4. NVV2Q3  To do it,
      1. NVUZPX   these instructions should be very good, including we’ve carefully made them be complete but still quick for everyone, even for the most beginner web users.
      2. NVTCXL  do these good steps in order:
        1. NVUT6O   follow ‘if you run across most any problem, what to do’
        2. NVUY3T   Know that for most 1.JotHere.com content, the reader can see if s/he got everything right here by the content the web browser highlights & features matches the URL requested, including  the frag identifier the content displays: see example image NVU9CH (above)
        3.  NVTLPP   Use an standard desktop/laptop web browser, not a mobile OS web browser as they’re buggy here,
          1. NVTLXE   –unless you have time & ability to get the web browser working and/or suffer with it; these steps below will get you started there but it still is often too much trouble.
        4. NVTCXR  Open the URL in your web browser 
          1. NVUXU3   to do so, make sure to exactly copy & enter the URL into to the web browser’s tab’s address bar of what the tab is displaying
            1. NVUXYE   as 1 character wrong or missing or space added will typically totally mess it up and via possibly strange errors.
            2. NVUY23   How to do this depends on the text display environment:
              1. NVUXWV   In better text display environments, web pages and most email clients, this generally means just clicking on the URL.
              2. NVUY0J   If that doesn’t/won’t work, then try via clipboard copy, which takes only seconds; in order:
                1. NVUYHQ  carefully select the URL, and just the URL (no characters before or after),
                2. NVUYI1  do copy-to-clipboard (generally Ctrl/Option-C)
                3. NVUYQR   ‘get ready to put in the URL’
                  1. NVUYIH  go & click-once in the web browser’s tab’s address bar where you want to display the page
                  2. NVUYIW  usually that will automatically select the whole URL there (great for the next step) but it doesn’t then press select-all (usually Ctrl/Option-A).
                4. NVUYKQ   do clipboard-paste (typically Ctrl/Option-V) which should replace the current URL with this new one.
                5. NVUYMS  press Enter/Return to browse the page
              3. NVUYNE   If that doesn’t/won’t work, then you’ve got a bad situation, so in order:
                1. NVUYO0    hand copy (via typing) the URL, a bad situation; do in order:
                  1. NVUYP1   do ‘get ready to put in the URL’
                  2. NVUYS4   carefully exactly type the URL
                  3. NVUYSV   ‘press Enter/Return to browse the page’
                2. NVUYTU   as time permits, seriously consider getting a better way to {get URLs so they can be readily displayed/opened}
                  1. NVUYWW   for instance, if you’re receiving these URLs via SMS/text (very common), then get & use Google Voice or {something better, which I haven’t found}.
            3. NVV2V6   ‘‘section history additional’ ‘in reverse start order’:’
              1. NVV2W1 inspired by the rentor of recent rental being unable to (the 2nd time) open that URL, from {probably from now trying to hand-copy the URL} plus poor problem handling.
          2. NVV4PP   note you have to wait until opening finishes.
        5. NVUZEY  wait until that pages finishes loading
          1. NVTJ6C  including without scrolling the page being loaded –unless  it is not the case that the URL points a particular location on the page.
          2. NVUZGO   For 1.JotHere.com content, that generally takes ~10 seconds.
          3. NVUZI1   when done, the web browser’s page-loading indicators will disappear, including, for at least web browser Chrome:
            1. NVUZO1  the “spinning” icon adjacent the page’s browser tab
            2. NVUZO8  the  gray status bar at the bottom of the browser’s window, saying ‘Waiting for..’
        6. NVTCTN  If the page content displays fine and including there is no password or username prompt (in order to get the content), then skip to the next section, otherwise do in order:
          1. NVTCJZ  Enter the password (plus username if prompted) then press submit or login.
            1. NVTCL5   Unless changed, this password will be the one last given to you for accessing this page
              1. NVTCNO   which is will be the one in the email, or SMS/text thread 1st directing you to this page/content.
          2. NVTCZ0   Once you the content is displayed including without that login prompt, you are logged in.
        7. NVTD1E   If the URL you’re opening includes a pointer to a particular portion of the page,
          1. NVTJDA  which is the norm for 1.JotHere.com URLs
          2. NVTNQS  so ends in ‘#’ followed by some alphanumerics, as say ending in #NVTD1E (the link to this point), called a (page-)fragment identifier
            1. NVTJLN  –formerly called a ‘fragment’ in Wikipedia’s URL syntax
            2. NVTJLW  then that portion within the page is what the URL is pointing to
          3. NVTJMQ  then as part of loading the web page, the web browser should scroll that portion into view and ideally highlight it
            1. NVTJPP   which by default web browsers by scrolling the window (tab) so what is being pointed to starts at the top of the window
            2. NVTJQN   which JotHere adds to by
              1. NVTJXG  putting an ideally-bright short vertical outline, currently orange, around else alongside {the ID of the point being anchored to, which it typically floats to the right}
                1. NVU9W2  see example image NVU9CH (above)
              2. NVTK0J   highlighting the entire content being pointed to.
                1. NVTKFB   –NOT YET but planned as soon as editing tools can be made to support this
            3. NVTD5D   Ensure this happened else does happen (that the portion the URL points to the web browser has highlighted & scrolled into view as described)
              1. NVTKIP   by simplest method: see what the page-fragment identifier refers to has been so scrolled & highlighted
                1. NVTL93   which on most 1.JotHere.com content is easy, as each piece of content:
                  1. NVTLG3   uses a standard identifier type, so far always a KCGUID (so 6 alphanumeric digits), as ‘NVTLG3‘ for this point.
                  2. NVTLDQ   most important, displays its identifier, usually in small OCR-font letters, typically floating it on the right-hand side of the column
                    1. NVTLMX   so if you don’t see the identifier where it should be,
                      1. NVTMDX   that could be caused by several factors, from the most likely:
                        1. NVTMFH   you weren’t logged in before you opened the URL and web browser (or something) has the bug that it doesn’t reattempt the scroll after login
                          1. NVTMK4   Fix is easy: while logged in, just reopen the URL, as again click on it.
                        2. NVTMLU   you are using buggy web browser, as many/most mobile browsers
                          1. NVTMZ4   which have bugs as
                            1. NVUARQ   ignoring scrolling to the spot or/and
                            2. NVUASH   chopping off the page-fragment identifier entirely.
                          2. NVTN1I  Fix is, from most preferred:
                            1. NVUAAW  use a quality, as desktop/laptop, web browser
                            2. NVUACZ   after the page loads, semi-manually find including scroll to the page-fragment identifier by auto-searching for it
                              1. NVUAPL   note if it chopped the frag, it takes several second more, as instead you’ll have to in-order:
                                1. NVUAUN   go back to the URL you were attempting to open
                                  1. NVUAVI   if you clicked on a link where the URL is not displayed: on the link, right-click or press-and-hold until a ‘Copy URL (to clipboard)’ option appears which you then select.
                                2. NVUAXW   go back the URL’s page (by opening it again or clicking the browser forward button)
                                  1. NVUAYP  auto-searching for the URL’s frag –note though that the ‘what to search for’ paste will paste in the whole URL which you’ll then have to delete except for the frag identifier.
                        3. NVUAGD   you resized or scrolled the window, so the web browser (incorrectly) scrolled the top of the window a new location
                          1.  NVUAJ9  fix is: press the browser URL refresh/reload button then wait for reload.
                        4. NVUALW   the web browser skipped doing the scroll for reason not listed here (and typically unknown)
                          1. NVUAO3   In Chrome, I find this happens for ~ 1 of 5 URL loads, for reason I don’t know.
                          2. NVUAOZ   the fix seems to be 1 to 3 page reload(s)
                        5. NVV00O   you mis-typed the URL
                        6. NVV02E   you don’t have a good Internet connection.  First insure this.
                          1. NVV04X  Test this fast & well by ensuring a web page loads {reasonably, so completely & fast-enough}, by either:
                            1. NVV062  browsing else refreshing some page with not too much data but changes, as news.google.com
                            2. NVV1ED   on a web page you have open, click on {a link you haven’t visited, so not dimmed out by the browser} which goes to a new page
                        7. NVV1KN   probably a few more, but rare & TBA later.
                      2. NVTMF9  just auto-search for the page-fragment identifier in the page, which takes seconds, by just doing in in order:
                        1. NVTM02   in the browser’s URL bar (telling the URL currently displayed), select the page-fragment identifier, then copy it to the clipboard (usually Ctrl/Option-C)
                        2. NVTM2Q   Start web-browser page search (Ctrl-F on Windows & Linux, hidden & trickier in Safari (Apple) browser)
                        3. NVTM7F   for what to search for, what you copied –paste it (usually Ctrl/Option-V
                2. NVTNW0   For non- 1.JotHere.com content,
                  1. NVTO2V   we won’t go into much detail until later due to our immediate focus on better content so JotHere content.
                  2. NVTNY4  this may be harder, at least to do it universally
                  3. NVTO12   if  displaying the fragment identifier in the content is not done
                    1. NVTO07 if the scrolling/highlighting isn’t obvious in itself, one will probably have to look at the page’s HTML source notably by click F12 and Right-click-> Inspector –advanced topics.

    6. NVTQWD  but realized beginner users {might be overloaded by all the other detail in that page + may not have scrolling to that location} so best as separate post

  1. I don’t skim because I’m dyslexic. – I see the last entry was: “if the scrolling/highlighting isn’t obvious in itself, one will probably have to look at the page’s HTML source notably by click F12 and Right-click-> Inspector –advanced topics.”
