I’ll provide an example where I wanted this behavior.
I’m hacking out a quick web project, and my top level navigation has links to certain parts of the main page (index#about, index#learn-more), I only have one other page (a contact page), but it completely breaks my nav, since my contact page obviously doesn’t have all the same anchor tags as my index page (e.g. /contact#learn-more). I’d like to link them back to my absolute url + anchor.
I understand this may not be a “good” design, but restricting this functionality feels a bit weird. Kind of like enforcing a UX decision in my tech stack.
I was able to use print to concat the base URL with the .URL param I wanted, so wasn’t a big deal.
