How do I make an anchor link?
An anchor link goes to a specific location within a web page. For example, if you want to have a section that users must scroll down to, you can provide a link to that section at the top of your page. Here's how:
- While editing the page, place the editor's cursor at the location you want to jump to.
- Click the Anchor button on the editor's toolbar and enter a descriptive name, like "section1". This inserts a small anchor icon that will only be visible while editing the page:
- Next, go to the location you want to link to your anchor. Select the link text and click the Link button and select the anchor you created from the Anchors drop down list.
To link to an anchor on another page, you must specify the page name followed by the # character and the anchor name as the link. Note that [[DoubleBracket]] links do not support anchors. For example, if you have a page named MyOtherPage with an anchor named section2, you would enter this into the Link URL box of the Insert Link dialog:
