Currently, helper "link_to_remote" generates html code like '<a
href="#"....'
"#" is used for the link of "next" page.

So there comes a problem. "#" stands of the the starting point of
current page.
which means, if the ajax link is at the bottom part of the page, where
scroll bar
needs to be moved to see it, when the ajax link is cliked, the page will
return to
the place for anchor "#", which means, scrolled to top.

Is there an easy way to keep the page not scrolling?

Thanks!

It shouldn't do anything as long as the onclick handler returns false:

  <a href="#" onclick="return false;">Try this</a>
