Page Anchoring

In this article, you will learn about Page anchoring (anchor links) and how it can be used throughout your Page

This feature is available to all packages.

What are Page anchors?

Page anchors, also known as anchor links, allow you to directly link to a specific part of a Page, whether it’s from within a Page or from an external source. 

How to copy a Page anchor

Anchor links are automatically attached to headers (headers 1, 2 and 3). They can be copied and sent to users to bring them to a specific section of a Page or to another Page. Simply:

  1. Click on the chain icon next to the header to copy it
  2. Paste it to a post, article, Text widget, message, etc.

Anchor links in the Table of contents widget

Anchor links attached to headers will also appear in the Table of contents widget, allowing for smooth navigation throughout the Page.

Anchor links can also be attached to a body of text by:
