Using React-Router to link within a page

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

I’m trying to make an anchor tag which will link to a location within the same page (like this)

However React-Router hijacks that, and and routes me to nothing, as I haven’t established that link in the hierarchy. So it sends me to the root location of that name, instead of a location on the same page.

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

if i understand your question, you can use hashlocation instead of history location. like this

ReactRouter.run(routes, hashlocation, (Handler) => {
  React.render(<Handler/>);
});

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
