Establishing a Named Anchor:
Open a page and put it in Edit mode. Next, launch the pop-up web editor. Highlight
the text which will serve as the special anchor link and then press the “Hyperlink
Next, switch to the “Anchor” tab and supply a name for your named anchor tag. Click
the OK button.
Linking to a Named Anchor from within the same web page:
The new named anchor will be accessible to you when you next create a link. To do
this, highlight the text which will serve as the link and then click the “Hyperlink
Manager” again. This time, instead of going to the anchor tab, you will note that
your anchor tag is under the “existing anchors” dropdown box. Select the appropriate
option; save your page and publish – your anchor link should now be functional.
Linking to a Named Anchor from within another web page:
Named anchors can be linked to from other web pages, but you will not have access
to the same dialog box featured above. In this case, it is critical that you know
the name of the named anchor, including how it is or is not capitalized.
The first step is to create a standard link to the destination web page using either
the internal linking tool or the external linking tool within Sitecore. Next, highlight
the freshly-created link and click the “Hyperlink Manager” (external links button).
Please do this even if your link is going to an internal web page.
Notice that the field labeled “URL” contains a link already. Click inside this box
to introduce the cursor, and then use the right-arrow key on your keyboard to move
the cursor to the very end of the URL. Next, type “#” after the “.aspx” of your
link, and then add the name of your named anchor tag. (See below). Click OK, Accept,
then Save, publish and approve your web page to launch your new link.
