Tech Tips for Linking back to your blog

Tech Tips   /  

I feel like some basic HTML features have been forgotten. One that I don’t see much of is the anchor tag.  Back in the old days when the internet was slow people would be impressed if you clicked a link and your browser jumped way down on the page.  (Hey times were tough).  We don’t do that much because new pages load fast, we have all kinds of options for more interaction with script.

However for our Listers who are creating a list based on a single blog post, anchor tags will help. This allows you to have each listing point back to the same page, but a different spot on the page.

Here’s how they work

In the code/text view of your page you add this tag <a id=”gohere”></a>.  It’s invisible.  Now when linking to that page you can simple use this format for the URL   mypage.html#gohere . The page will open right at the spot where that anchor is.  For now, here is a great tutorial, but I will create a demonstration post later.

Creating jump links also called anchor links in WordPress
