An anchor tag is an HTML tag. It is used to define the beginning and end of a hypertext link.
The name attribute of the anchor tag can be used to enable users to “jump” to a specific point on a page (jump marker, anchor).
The HTML code for an Anchor tag with the Name attribute looks like this:
<a name="to top"></a> or
In the first code sample, you link from the bottom of a page back to the beginning, so users can quickly get to the top of the page without having to scroll for a long time. In the second example, users can directly access a part of the page, for example, a subdivision point. By clicking, users are guided via name attribute directly to the subject.
By simply setting a hash tag (#) at the anchor name, the browser can identify a jump within the page.
You can also link to a specific location on another page internally. This would be defined as follows:
The “#name” is specified after the filename.
Using Anchors in Zoey
Anchors in HTML work with Zoey as they do anywhere else.
Using a Text or HTML block you will add the following link:
<a href="[/page-URL#anchor]">link text</a>
And on the page that links to you would put the following in a Text or HTML block where you want the anchor location to be:
<a name="anchor" id="anchor"></a>
