Going to a Card in the Current Deck

Preferences - Do not show ads

To go to a card in the current deck, you just need to specify the offset in the anchor link's URL. As the target card is in the current WML document, there is no need to specify the host name, path and file name in the URL. Only the ID of the target card is needed.

The following WML example demonstrates how to go to a card in the current deck:
