Adding anchors

Anchors are links on a page that "jump" to different parts of that same page.  You can decide if your page is long enough with different sections that it warrants anchors. 

  • Go to the page where you want to add anchor links.

  • In another window, open the same page in view mode.

  • In the view mode window, roll over the content to which you want your anchor to link.

  • On the left side of the paragraph you will see a link icon.

    IMPORTANT: each content block entered has it's own anchor link for you to anchor into.  If you want to anchor into a sub-section of an existing content block, that section must be entered as its own content block.  I.e., you cannot anchor into portions of a single content block.

  • Click the link icon.

    The URL browser bar will update with the paragraph anchor location.

  • Copy the part of the URL that updated after clicking the link icon (in this example you would copy cu_info_card_274).

  • Using the WYSIWYG highlight or create text which will become the anchor link.

  • Create a link, pasting the URL portion from Step 6.

  • Add a # before the pasted text (In this example, my link will be #cu_info_card_274).
