An anchor allows you to link to a specific section of a page. An anchor has two parts: the anchor itself and the anchor link.
Creating an anchor
Anchors are created within the editor. Highlight the text you would like to use as the "anchor." Then, within the Link Menu, select "Add Anchor."
Tip: Just like a URL slug, the anchor name should not have any spaces. Use anchorName or anchor_name, rather than "anchor name." Also, anchors are case sensitive.
Creating an anchor link
If the anchor and anchor link are in the same content element
Create anchor using the method above.
Select the destination anchor from the dropdown on the Anchor tab within the Link Properties window.
If the anchor and anchor link are NOT in the same content element
- Create anchor using above method.
- On the URL tab within the Link Properties window, type a hashtag (#) followed by the destination anchor's name.
- Uncheck "Open link in a new tab."
Note: You can even use this method as an external link to link to an anchor from another page or eNewsletter! Just use the full URL with a hashtag (#) followed by the destination anchor's name (www.schoolname.com/pagename#anchorname).
