Use this to allow users to jump to a specific heading or section of your page. To do this, you have to do two things:
- Create the destination (also called a bookmark or anchor).
- Create a link to the destination.
Create the Destination
- In the text edit box, place the cursor at the beginning of the text you wish to link to.
- Click the Insert/edit anchor button in the tools below the text edit box. The Insert/edit anchor window appears.
- In the Anchor name box, type a simple name that you can easily remember later. Do not include spaces, and it is best kept to lower case characters.
- Click Insert. The Insert/edit anchor window disappears and an anchor symbol appears at the cursor location .
Create the Link
This can be done on the same page or a different page from the destination.
- In the text edit box, type some text that users will click on to visit the destination.
- Highlight the text, then click the Insert/edit link button . The Insert/edit link window appears.
- If the destination is NOT on the current page, type or paste the URL of the destination page in the Link URL box. At the end of the URL, type a pound sign (#) and the name of the destination anchor. For example, gotopage.asp#gotolink, will jumpthe user to an anchor called gotolink on gotopage.asp.
- If the destination IS on the current page, only type a pound sign (#) and the name of the anchor in the Link URL box.
- Click Insert. The Insert/edit link window disappears and the link text is highlighted.
- Save the page and test the link.
