Creating and linking to an anchor (bookmark)

Anchors are used to create an easy way of linking to page partway through. Usually used to create a table of contents at the top of a long document, enabling the visitor to jump to a given topic without scrolling.

To make sure that pages download quickly it is usually best to split very long documents (such as the school prospectus) into separate pages for each chapter or section.

Create an anchor

  • Place the cursor in the location where you would like the anchor.

  • Click the ‘Insert anchor’ icon in the text wizard toolbar.

The New Anchor box appears:

Choose ‘Create new anchor’.

(This will be the only available option

if you have no other anchors on the page).

Supply an anchor name (no spaces)

in the ‘Reference’ box and click ‘OK’.

A small anchor icon in the text shows the location of the anchor.

Now you can link to the anchor
