An anchor link/element is used to create links between a source anchor and a destination anchor. The source can be a piece of text, image, or a button that links to another specific part of a web page, rather than simply linking to another page by itself, which would land at the top of a page.
Anchor links can be very useful for linking within the same page, and pushing a user to different relevant parts of the page.
There are two ways to use anchor links:
If you are looking to link to an internal page within the site, there are 2 different types of methods:
For elements that have buttons within them:
In this first step you are going to create your anchor point(s).
On the content editing toolbar, click the anchor icon.
Enter a unique ID into the Anchor ID field.
Repeat this for as many anchors on that page you require.
This help video takes you through how to create anchor links on your Limecube website. Or you can scroll down for the step-by-step guide.
In this second step, you are going to learn how to add an anchor within the same page, and on another page on your website. The methods will vary slightly depending on whether you link to the anchor from a plugin or content block.
In the example in Step 1, we entered the word 'ceramics' into the Anchor ID field.
Click the link icon on the content editing toolbar.
If the plugin you are using contains a link field, scroll to the link field as per the screenshot below, and in the 'External URL or in-page anchor point'
Click 'Ok or Apply' and save your page, then test that the anchor link is working by opening this page on the front of your website and clicking the link.
This example shows you how to insert an anchor link that takes you to another page on your website. While it is almost exactly the same as the process above, the difference is in adding the page url in front. In this instance we are pointing from the home page to the about us page, and down to the section on ceramics.
Content block editing bar:
Plugin url/link field:
Broken down this looks like:
External links can be inserted via the content block and other plugins that allow link insertion.
Click the link icon on the content editing toolbar:
This will now insert a link to an external website.
If you want to remove a link, click on the link in your content. You will see this toolbar:
Click the 'break link' icon as shown in the image above, and this will remove the link.
