|If you build a very long web page, you may want to create anchors, which are links to points inside the same page (as opposed to normal links, which are links take you to different pages).
A common use of anchors is a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. With a FAQ page, you may have a list of questions at the top of the page. When a user clicks on one of those questions, they go to a point further down in the page where they see the answer.
There are two parts to creating an anchor
- the place from which you link (in the FAQ example, it is the question at the top of the page)
- the place to which you link (in the FAQ example, it is the answer at the bottom of the page)
To create these anchors in Web Builder Express, edit your text. View the HTML by clicking on the "HTML" box in the lower left part of the editing window.
To create the place from which you will link, enter this HTML code:
Link from here
In this example, the link reference is "#10" and includes the number sign "#", and the link text that will appart on the page is "Link from here".
To create the place to which you will link, enter this HTML code:
Note that in this code, you enter the same reference number (10) that you entered in the "from" link, but you do not include the number sign "#".
With the code above, when a user clicks on the link called "Link from here", then will be taken to the place on the page that contains the second set of HTML code.
