Navigation Bar and Anchors


Anchors are an easy way to help a user quickly get to information on your page; they use coded "anchors" that you can link to in the same menu used to create internal/external links.

To begin creating an anchor, click your mouse in the editor where you want the anchor to be, this would be where you want the user to be led to. Then select the anchor tool from the toolbar as shown below.

Next, name the anchor in the id field. (Keep in mind, anchors are case sensitive.)

Finally, highlight the word, letter, or image that will contain the link and select the Insert/edit link tool, then enter the anchor id in the Anchor field as demonstrated below.
