Is there any way to include a # in drupal_goto?

i want something like this

function MYMODULE_preprocess_node(&$variables) {
  $node = $variables['node'];
  switch ($node->type) {
    case 'product':

For Drupal 6,

It should be 3rd parameter

drupal_goto($path = '', $query = NULL, $fragment = NULL, $http_response_code = 302)

drupal_goto("products", NULL, $node->nid);

For Drupal 7

drupal_goto($path = '', array $options = array(), $http_response_code = 302)
drupal_goto("products", array('fragment' => $node->nid));
  • for D7 example, you can use any parameter that url() function supports... such as URL params.

In Drupal 6 drupal_goto use its third parameter for the fragmentation. If you wants to make the url like products#345 you should pass its fragment as third argument in drupal_goto function.

drupal_goto("products", NULL, $node->nid); // where $node->nid is the fragment.

In Drupal 7 you should pass fragment as key value pair of array on second parameter of drupal_goto function.

drupal_goto('products', array('fragment' => $node->nid)) ; // where $node->nid is the fragment.

Both of above will produce an url like products#123, where 123 is the value of $node->nid variable.


This also worked for me in Drupal 7

 drupal_goto( '/products/' . 'section', array( 'fragment' =>  'subsection', 'alias' => TRUE ) );

drupal_goto loses #zzz if there is a ?destination=foobar#zzz, as this is never returned by $_SERVER, remove this line as does nothing apart from breaking stuff:

//$options['fragment'] = $destination['fragment'];  // removed
is the same as
