Hello,
I can not replicate your problem. I tried your code in Chrome and Safari and it does jump to footer.
When I click the link “Jump to bottom” the page scroll until footer is visible. This is the normal behaviour.

I have the same issue described here. did you get around this? my code is exactly the same as the posted here

Following since I have the same issue. Thanks


#11

I have the same issue. Is this a bug?


#12

It is definitely a bug…


#13

Yes It is, I am having the same issue for too long!


#14

the same here. it does not jump to the bottom.


#15

#16

That’s odd, it only jumps to a new page in the FCC course ware, not in Code pen see below:

#18

I am also facing the same problem.


#19

Yup. Same issue here.

I use Chrome if that helps.


#20

Same issue here, tried with notepad++ and the code leads to footer like it should. Something is wrong with the text editor and the end result from the editor on the page.
Did anyone find the solution?

Try adding target="_blank" inside the opening a tag. Maybe that will work…

<a href="#footer" target="_blank">Jump to bottom of the page</a>
