Allows you to link from a page on your website to a specific point on another page on your site.
Linking your pages
You can link two pages together by creating a link called a hyperlink. Alternatively you can link from one part of a page to another point on the same page, known as an anchor.
But what if you want to link from one page to a specific point on another page? Well this step by step guide will show you how. However we advise that you familiarise yourself with creating hyperlinks and anchors before you start.
- Highlight the text or image you want users to be directed to
- Click on the Anchor link icon in the top row of the editor bar
- Select Create
- Enter a Unique name for your anchor, and make a note of the name.
Important - You must make a note of the full name of the anchor which should only be alpha numeric.
- Click Add to website , a small anchor icon will appear to show the anchor has been placed
- Go to the page where you want to start the link, and select edit
- Highlight the text or image you want to originate the link from
- Click the Yellow link button in the editor bar
- Choose to link to an internal page, then choose the page you wish to link to and press submit
- Go back and highlight the word or text again, and once more click the yellow icon again
- This time select to link to an external page.
- The box that appears will already have some text in it, which is the full address of the page you want to link to
- Leaving the text in the box put your cursor to the very end of the text and type in a # then the name of the anchor you created in step 4 of these instructions.
Important – If the name is incorrect the link will not work
- Click Add to website
- Save the page and test the link.
