Hi there Frankie,
That is called an anchor link and you can add an anchor link as follows:

Note: you can change the link to be what you want it to be - just remember that the links "#news" and "news" must have the same name eg, "#here" and "here"

Step 1: Creating the link

1.Drag and drop and html widget onto your page where you would like the text to appear for your visitor to click on, for this example it will be at the top of the page.

2.Enter this code in the html widget (withouth the <!-- -->: <!--<a href="#News">Read Current News Stories</a>-->

What this bit of code is saying is: News is the specific place on the page I want to jump, and Read Current News Stories is the text I want the link to display.

Step 2: Marking the Spot

1.Drag and drop an html widget onto your page where you would like the link created in Step 1 to take the clicker, for this example it would be wherever the News section of the document is.

2.Enter this code in the html widget (again without the <!-- -->): <!-- <a name="News"></a> -->

What this bit of code is saying is: Here is the place named News, and a link with this place specified needs to go here.

You will then have a link to that particular place on the page.

I hope this helps.
