    I was told that if I want to refer back to a certain page with text on it that I could use bookmarks, but after conducting a couple of tests. It would appear that bookmarks are only for the one who bookmarked them. I wrote a haiku that I want to refer to the exact page, but I am afraid that when someone navigates to that specific page number they will reset to page 1 or not be directed to it. Is there a safe way to make sure I could direct someone to the page?

    Bookmarks work exactly like you would expect: They save the page at its exact location. All you have to do is give it a name, and after the page refreshes, copy it from the address bar. If you were to visit the link, it takes you back right to the page you bookmarked. Here’s an example of some text I searched for, but notice that it’s on page 100 (on the lower half of the page):

    So there is no worry about it resetting to page 1 or whatever?

    There shouldn’t be any issue of that happening. What kind of tests did you do?

    It doesn’t matter since this was before I knew about bookmarks, but I just copied and pasted the URL in the browser address bar.

    Does this website have a logo that could be incorporated into a QR code?

    The closest official logo I can think of would be the one on the main page with the hexagons inside hexagons.
