Link to Block or Anchor Link

Anchor links allow your site visitors to find useful information quickly within a page without having to scroll up or down. An anchor link may also be created to take a visitor directly to content on another page or straight to a block. This requires creating the basic link that will act as an anchor link.


Launch Inspect Element and Locate The Code

Webpages are built with code, and all elements within that page have some code associated with them. It is possible to view the webpage code with a tool that already exists in your browser called Inspect Element. We will be focusing on Inspect Element in Google Chrome because that’s our browser of choice. Firefox has its own developer tools which can also be invoked by selecting inspect element from the browser menu.

  1. To launch the inspect element tool, press CTRL + Shift + I keys on your keyboard.
  2. Or you can right click anywhere on a web page and select Inspect from the browser menu.

Link to an Anchor Link on Another Page

If you have created an anchor link on another page you may also create a custom link to to this anchor.
