Linking within a document

 

By including an anchor tag within a post or page, you can place links in the body of your post which when clicked allow the reader to jump to another location on the page.

First, you will need to place the anchor. In the WYSIWYG editor, place the cursor in the content where you wish to drop the anchor and click the Anchor icon on the toolbar(you may have to open the full toolbar by clicking the ‘kitchen sink’ button). You will be prompted to name the anchor. This should be something simple. For example, if you want to place a link to jump back to the top of the page, you could name the anchor "top". In this example, I’m anchoring the heading “BRISTOL”. After clicking the “insert” button shown below, the HTML code: <a name="bristol"></a> will be inserted into the HTML code in your content.

 

If you see the small yellow anchor icon, you’ve inserted the anchor successfully.


Next, you will select the text where you want to add the link that will let the reader jump to where you’ve placed the Anchor.

 

 

Add ‘#’ sign the beginning of the anchor name for the link. No other fields need to be filled out. Click the “insert link” button.  Now just save your changes to the page and test your anchor link.
