Create Anchor Links

created

Anchor links are hyperlinks that link to another part of the same page (usually lower down the page) so that visitors don't have to scroll to see content.

To make an anchor link:

  1. Open the content item within which you'd like to place the anchor/link combination and enter all the text you want.
  2. Place your cursor where you wish to link to on the page. This is where the anchor will be placed.
  3. On the toolbar of your Editor, click on the Anchor icon
  4. In the pop-up window, in the Anchor Name field, enter a name for this anchor
  5. Click Insert
  6. Verify that the anchor has been inserted by locating the small anchor icon placed in the Editor where your cursor was positioned.
  7. To add the link to the new anchor you created, select the text you wish to link from..
  8. Click Insert/Edit Link
  9. In the pop-up window. find the ANCHORS drop down in the lower portion of the screen
  10. Select the anchor your wish to link to.
  11. Click Insert
  12. Click Save or Apply to save changes
  13. Your text is now hyperlinked to the anchor. Test it on the front end.
TIP: The classic example of a page that relies on anchor links to guide an end user is an FAQ page. Questions are often shown in a bulleted list at the top of the page and linked to anchors further down the page whether the answer text is location.
