Linking to an anchor widget on another page

There are various reasons to link to an anchor on another page. You could have a glossary page that you would like your audience to be able to reference when a word is presented on a page. There could be a blurb of information nestled on a page that is relevant to a topic of discussion on another page. Regardless of the reason, it's easy for this to be done. Now that you now how to create an anchor, you will now learn how to link directly to an anchor from another page. 

How to:


Anchor Menu Option

The first option is a site builder chose to create an anchor menu; you'll need to start on that page. Be sure to be in "View" mode from the dashboard so the link is accurate. 

  1. Click the anchor menu item that you would like to link to. 
  2. You will know the anchor is working appropriately if your page scrolls to the right portion of the page.
  3. This adds a # and the anchor ID to the end of the website address at the top of your browser. This is the direct link to the anchor item on the page. 
  4. Copy the link and go to the page you want to display the link on. 
  5. You can now use this link on your page as a hyper link in the content block, a call to action button, or with any widget that allows you to direct your audience to another page using a URL. 

No Anchor Menu Option

The second option is for a site builder that chose not to have an anchor menu. The steps are very similar but the link is not provided. Again, you'll need to start on the page with the anchors and instead of view mode, you'll want to be in the edit interface on this page.

  1. Find the anchor menu item that you would like to link to. Note the Anchor ID. 
  2. Now go back to pages and view that same page and find the URL.
  3. Add a # and the anchor ID to the end of the URL at the top of your browser. You have now created the direct link to the anchor on the page. 
  4. Copy the new link and go to the page you want to display the link on. 
  5. You can now use this link on your page as a hyper link in the content block, a call to action button, or for any widget that allows you to direct your audience to another page using a URL.
