Using Link Anchors on your Site

HTML Tutorials


Click on thumbnailed images to enlarge

Link anchors are very cool and useful for long websites. An anchor is a link that when clicked simply moves you to a different portion of the page. For instance if a link is at the top of the page pointing you to information at the bottom of the page clicking the link will scroll down to the information. The great part about this is that it is relatively simple to implement and makes for a pretty cool setup on your site. The first part of the code is the link.

<a href=\"#jump\">Jump to Jump</a>

This part of the code links to #jump. This code acting alone will not do anything so we need to add one more part.

<a name=\"jump\"></a>

Take the above code and place it right above where you want the link to jump to. This link is known as the anchor it holds the position of where to scroll to.

Be sure to include the number sign in the link but not in the name (anchor).
