How do I Set an Anchor in Sitecore?

Save

Sitecore is a content management system that can be used to manage and edit the content and appearance of your website. Sitecore runs on either MySQL or Oracle databases, which makes it flexible enough to work on several kinds of Web servers. Sitecore also includes a built-in HTML editor that can be used to add HTML code to your Web page. An anchor is a link that is placed in a page, which can then be pointed to externally. If you have a page with a lot of content and you would like to redirect your user to a specific part of this content, you need to set up an anchor.

  • Open Internet Explorer (the recommended browser for Sitecore). In the text box for your Web address, enter in the URL that was given to you by your Web hosting company for Sitecore. Enter the username and password you used to set up your Sitecore account.

  • Click the "+" button next to the page you would like to edit from the side of your screen. This shows you the various content boxes that are on this page. Click the section into which you want to insert your anchor.

  • Click the small blue arrow icon next to "Text" to open the HTML editor. This brings you to a new page in your Web browser and can be used to insert HTML code into your content.

  • Click the part of the document where you want to insert the anchor. When you link to your anchor, the portion you selected appears at the top of your user's screen. An anchor is not clickable, but serves as a marker to be linked to.

  • Click on the "Anchor" icon from the second row of tools in your HTML editor. This is a small, yellow icon in a grey box that looks like an anchor. A text box opens where you can name your anchor. Enter the name you want and click "Insert." To remove this anchor, click the icon to the right of the "Anchor" button, which is a small, red icon that looks like an anchor.

  • Link to your anchor by defining its name in your hyperlink. For instance, if your Web page is http://www.mysite.com/page and the name of your anchor is part2, you insert the hyperlink http://www.mysite.com/page#part2 anywhere on your site to redirect to this section of your page.
