Open PDFs at specific entry points in the browser

PDF files can be opened at specific points in a browser. It is possible to open them at a given page or at the beginning of a chapter. This is done by applying HTML attributes to the link URL.

Adobe has some documentation concerning start parameters for PDFs here and here.

Open via chapter name

Append the complete chapter name to your link URL.

Example: http://blog.dispatched.ch/sps/thesis.pdf#3.4%20Programmiersprache%20und%20Paradigmen

Note: Chapter names are to be encoded as is common practice in URLs. In this example blanks are encoded to %20.

Open a specific page

Append the attribute ‘page’ followed by the page number to your link URL.

Example: http://blog.dispatched.ch/sps/thesis.pdf#page=38
