How to Create Anchor Links

If you have different sections in a long post or page and you want the visitor to be able to click on a link to jump to a different section of that post then you’ll want to use an anchor link.

  1. 1) Select and edit the page or post you want to create anchor links.

  2. 2) Click the “Text” tab on the post/page to view it's source code.

  3. 3) Now that you can see the pages’ source code you just need to add this code to wherever you want to place an anchor. Change the name and title in the tag.
    <a name="section1">Section 1</a>

  4. 4) You can now switch back to the Visual tab to create the link. To create the link highlight the text you want the user to click on to take them to your anchor link and for the link use whatever the name is in your anchor tag preceded by a hash symbol. So in my case the link would be:
    #section1

  5. 5) Save and Preview.
