How to add anchor links to a post

Created by Sloane DellOrto, Modified on Fri, 28 Jul, 2017 at 1:56 PM by Steph Bradley

Note that anchors - or inline links within a post to another section in the same post, may not work in mobile. For more mobile-friendly options, try either using the Table of Contents (TOC) or Accordion options within your posts Display Settings.
  1. Make sure Advanced mode is on (bottom right of your screen - it will turn blue when engaged).
  2. Scroll down to the end of the body field and click on the text link called "Body format" 

  3. Select "Full HTML" instead of "Filtered HTML"

  4. Find the spot you want to anchor to (not from) and click right in front of the text and click the "flag icon" in the tool bar. 

  5. Give it an anchor name that you can remember. Example: Patient Safety Concern could be "PSC"

  6. After making your anchor, go to the text that you would like to click to be able to go to the anchor you just created.
  7. Highlight the text and click the insert link button (the world icon with a link on it). 
  8. Change the link type "Link to anchor in the text" Then, choose the correct anchor name and click "ok"
