How to remove or redirect the link to posts endings ex. #more-944

 1:59 pm on Apr 2, 2012 (gmt 0)

How can I remove those stupid endings ex. #more-944 when a user clicks read more and why is it even there, why not just link like the title. Is there a way to removed it or redirect.

The named anchors are processed entirely within the browser. They are not a separate URL.

You cannot redirect because the # part isn't even sent to the server in the URL request.

If you don't like the names of your anchors, change them. And if you don't want mid-page anchors at all, don't use them. There's got to be a global setting in WordPress that you can change.

They're for, um, the human user's convenience. Humans. Remember them? :) If you've got a long page, it helps to jump directly to the part that answers your question.

And in fact local anchors do sometimes get noted by search engines, at least if they're attached to a header. I've got one on an h3 that comes up periodically.
