How can I create an anchor link?
Posted by Monique C, Last modified by on 17 January 2011 10:34 AM

A link has two ends - called anchors - and a direction. The link starts at the "source" anchor and points to the "destination" anchor, which may be any Web resource (e.g., an image, a video clip, a sound bite, a program, an HTML document, an element within an HTML document, etc.). You'll set up the destination first and the source link second.

  1. You'll want to create your content first; create the content of the page, including the thing you want linked and the thing you want the anchor link to jump to.
  2. Place your cursor into your page where you would like the anchor link to point to.
  3. Click on the anchor button on the content editor toolbar and name your anchor.
  4. Highlight the text in your source anchor and click the "Link" button in the toolbar. Use the anchor drop-down menu to select the anchor you created. Click Insert to create the link.

To see an example of a working anchor link, click link (this is the source):
