JavaScript - Jump to anchor

I'm trying to open a div with a jump to the anchor. The opening part is working but it's not jumping to the named anchor

This is my script:

<script type="text/javascript">
function spoil(id){
if (document.getElementById) {
var divid = document.getElementById(id);
divid.style.display = (divid.style.display = 'block');
window.location = '#' + id;

<a href="http://example.com" onclick="spoil('thanks');" title="hello">
<img src="images/gfx.png" alt="world" width="300" height="300"/>

Any ideas what's wrong with it?

Looks like you're unhiding a spoiler div. If so, you can scroll the element into view as follows:

function spoil(id) {
    var divid = document.getElementById(id);
    divid.style.display = 'block';
    return false;
<a href="#" onclick="return spoil('thanks');" title="hello"><img src="images/gfx.png" alt="world" width="300" height="300"/></a>
