Is there a way to link to certain parts of a page?

As in, you click a link on the page, and it brings you to a different part of that page pertaining to the link you clicked on?

Hello Riddy

It sounds like you want to set up anchor links! This will require a bit of HTML which will then allow your site visitor to jump to different areas of your page.

You can find out how on this tutorial: Creating HTML Anchor Links

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.

It's the same process but you must include the full url of the target anchor.

Oh, that's easy :D (You don't have to use HTML) Go and open your site builder and go to whatever page you want to add your link to, get a text box and click in the text box and type what you want like "Click Here" then highlight the word, after that look up to where you can see where to change the size, color, font, etc. then click the little icon that says link with a chain next to it, after you do that you can choose a page from your site, type in the link of a site, email addresses, etc.

Thank you for the qucik replies...but not sure which one is right for what i am trying to do - for example, someone is reading the blurb about my shop - they can then click on the highlighted word shop and it will take them to the shop page...i tried the link icon Legolas but when i preview the page it just opens up a mail box option of yahoo or google mail...!? thank you very much in advance again,

Hi Lauren,

You have to create anchor links for this to work. The tutorial that Sanja has shown above tells you how to do this. The syntax for anchors out of the current page is that shown above. It's a two part construction.

Setting the anchor, ie the point at which the link will land on and referencing the anchor the place from where the viewer clicks the link..

If you can tell me your site and the page and the word that you wish to jump from and the place on another page that you wish to jump to, I can do an example code pair for you, then you can implement it on other parts of your site.
