Anchors

Anchors allow users to click a link and jump directly to a different section of the same page. Adding anchors to a page with a lot of information helps users navigate quickly to what they're interested in.

To add an anchor to your page, highlight the target word or area on the page where the user should jump to when clicking your link.

Once the area is highlighted click "Insert" and select "Anchor" in the insert dropdown.

A box will pop up with “Anchor.”

Under “Id” you should choose a single, descriptive, lowercase word that you will remember, such "contact" or "sponsors" (without quotes).

When you're finished, click “Ok”

A little “Anchor” symbol will appear in front of the area you highlighted.

Your anchor is now in place. The next step is creating a link to this anchor, so that users on this page, or any other page, can jump directly to the anchor by clicking a link.

Edit the page that will have the link to your anchor, then highlight the text you want to link.

Click the “Insert/Edit Link” button, and in the “Anchor” field, type the name you gave your anchor. If you're editing the same page that you anchor is on, then you don't have to worry about the "Link" field. If you are adding this link in a different page than the one your anchor is in, you'll need to specify the page with the anchor in the "Link" field.
