How to link to a specific tab in a Deck of Cards on another page

Purpose

When the History parameter is enabled on the Deck of Cards macro, the URL does not appear to remain static, and will end up pointing to a different tab, especially if a user has been looking at other tabs on the page.

Answer

In order to get the static URL pointing to a tab, you will need to update the link on that page to the complete URL.

For example, we have the following URL pointing to the third tab:

http://localhost:8090/display/TEST/Test+Card#testDOC-id3
When pasting this URL on another page, Confluence will ignore the "history" of the tab, which means it only captures the name of the page, rather than the whole URL:

As such, you will need to update the link, by clicking Edit.

Then, update the address field with the complete URL:

This should direct the user to the specified tab.
