How to Link to an Anchor in Joomla

Save

Joomla is a free, open source content management system (CMS) for creating websites. It is written in the PHP programming language and uses object-oriented programming (OOP) techniques. An anchor is a HTML tag that is used to link to a particular section of a web page. Clicking on a link at the top of the page to navigate to a paragraph (where the anchor is located) further down the page, is a typical example. It makes finding information on a website easier for users.

  • Log in to Joomla admin and navigate to the "Content" and then "Article Manager" section. Select the page where you would like to add the link and anchor. Click on the title to open the page content.

  • Navigate to where you want to add the anchor and click on this section of text in the editor. Select the anchor button in the editor toolbar options at the top of the page. This will open a popup. Enter a unique name for your anchor and click "Insert" to save the changes and close the popup.

  • Create a link to the anchor. Select a piece of text that will be clicked on to take you to the anchor text. Click on the image of a link on the toolbar at the top of the editor. A tooltip with the text "Insert/Edit Link" will appear when you scroll over it. In the popup, select "Link to anchor in the text" as the "Link Type" option. Select the anchor created in the previous step and click "OK" to create the link.

  • Click "Save" in the page editor to close the page and save the changes. Open the page in a browser to test that the anchor and link work properly.
