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:

  1. Create the destination (also called a bookmark or anchor).
  2. Create a link to the destination.

Create the Destination

  1. In the text edit box, place the cursor at the beginning of the text you wish to link to.
  2. Click the Insert/edit anchor button Anchor in the tools below the text edit box.  The Insert/edit anchor window appears.
  3. 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.
  4. Click Insert.  The Insert/edit anchor window disappears and an anchor symbol appears at the cursor location Anchor.

Create the Link

This can be done on the same page or a different page from the destination.

  1. In the text edit box, type some text that users will click on to visit the destination.
  2. Highlight the text, then click the Insert/edit link button Insert/edit link.  The Insert/edit link window appears.
  3. 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.
  4. If the destination IS on the current page, only type a pound sign (#) and the name of the anchor in the Link URL box.
  5. Click Insert. The Insert/edit link window disappears and the link text is highlighted.
  6. Save the page and test the link.
