Creating in-Page Links (Anchors) – WordPress Video Tutorial Transcription

creating in-page links anchorsFollowing is the transcription for the Creating in-page Links video tutorial.

Hello there! Joel D Canfield with another Spinhead Web Design WordPress Tutorial.

I’m going to show you how to make an anchor, a link to jump to the middle of the page.

So here’s a page about my best beloved but down here this is where it really gets interesting. What if I want to give people a way to jump right to there? Here, in the post in the Dashboard, you probably usually write here in the visual tab and I’m going to scare you by bringing you over to the text tab where we actually write in code. There are two parts to setting this up.

First we create the anchor down here. See that angled bracket? A for anchor. The a gets a name equals inside quotes case sensitive “interesting” (name=“interesting”). You can name it whatever you want. And then see that angled bracket slash a angled bracket ()? We’ve got two different things here but the space isn’t necessary. You need that code to have a place for it to jump to. And you’ll notice there’s nothing visible on the page yet. But we come back here at the top of the page we might want to give people a way to jump to where it gets interesting. Update that.

Come back to the top and look, there’s a link to jump to where it gets interesting and it jumps right to that spot. You can also put in just this bit and then manually add this to the end of your web address and then it will work and take you right to that location.
