Anchor Links

Anchor Links direct the user to a different spot on the same page. An example can be found at the bottom of the page. Another is here: (go to bottom).

1. First, in the editor, place the text or image that you want to turn into a Link, and decide where you want to place your Anchor.

2. Click in the editor where you want the Anchor to be. Click on “Insert” and select the “Anchor” item.

3. Give it whatever name you would like, without a pound-sign prefix. In this example we use “place-to-go”.

4. Once you click “OK”, you should see a little Anchor icon in a grey box show up where you intended.

5. Now, optionally select the text that you want to turn into a Link. Then, click on the “Insert/edit link” icon, shaped like a few links in a chain. You will also see a breaking link icon to the right of it, which is used to remove links.

6. In this menu you can link the text to any existing page, or to any external URL. If you highlighted text in the previous step you can change the text, here. In this case, we want to just add the name of the anchor in the URL field, with a pound-sign prefix. So: #place-to-go

7. Once you press update, the selected text will change into the familiar blue, with an underline. Now just press “Update” to the right to make these changes visible to your users!

Example as explored above:

There is a >> LINK << here.
