Anchor

Page address: http://www.mnsu.edu/its/web/template/editing/pageedit/anchor.html

The anchor is where you want a link to go to in the page. An example of using this anchor tool would be if you had links at the top of a page that link to an anchor further down in the page.

  1. To insert an anchor place your cursor where you would like the anchor to be and press the tool. A screen will pop up and this is where you enter in the anchor name.

  3. The next step is to create a link to that anchor. Select the text you would like to link to the anchor and press the "Insert/Edit Link" tool.
  4. Next select "Link to anchor in the text" from the Link Type dropdown box. If your page has an anchor then another dropdown box should be displayed. Select the anchor you would like to link to from the "Select an Anchor By Anchor Name" dropdown box and select OK.
