Adding On-Page Anchors in WebYep

April 8th, 2008


If you’ve got a page in WebYep that’s got a large amount of content, you may want to help your visitors get quickly to the section they’re interested in. In order to do this, you need to add an “anchor” to the section you want them directed to, and you need to add a “link” to the anchor at the top of the page. This tutorial assumes you have WebYep installed and have a “Rich Text” element already configured on your page.

There are really four steps to this process:
1. Create the upper content that will link to the lower content
2. Create the lower content that you want the upper content to link to.
3. Create the “anchor” just before the lower content.
4. Create the “link” in the upper content.

The following video will make this more clear:

If you want to add on-page anchors, but the upper link and the lower anchor are spread across two elements, then the name of the lower anchor won’t automatically appear in the pull down menu. In this case, you should refer to the image below:


In the video, since the anchor link and the upper link were part of the same WebYep element, the name of the anchor link would appear under the pull down menu for “Anchors”. If the anchor link is NOT within the same element, then you need to manually add it. You do this by typing “#” followed by the name of the anchor in the field marked “Link URL”. In the above example, the anchor link was called “groundcover”, and so in order to have link go to this location, I typed “#groundcover” in the “Link URL” field.
