Nowadays, everybody shares and creates links for many different purposes and they are a part of our everyday lives. However, if you share a link that leads to a long document, it can be quite annoying for the users to locate the information that you want to convey. Therefore, it is always a good idea to create and use “Specific Links” which lead to a specific area of the page.
In this article, depending upon the site, we will teach you how to link to a specific part of the page. Make sure to follow the methods carefully in order to avoid conflict.
How to Link to a Specific Part of a Page?
After receiving numerous requests from multiple users, we decided to look into the matter and devised a separate guide for some of the most popular platforms to link to a specific part of the page. It is as follows:
- Click on the plus icon and add a new “Block“.
- Select “Heading” as the block type and enter the heading text.
- Click on the “Advanced” dropdown and select the “HTML Anchor” option.
- Type in the text by clicking which the page jump will be initiated.
Note: Type without spaces, use “-” between the words need to be spaced.
- Now type in some text, add an image or a button by clicking which the page jump will be initiated.
- Highlight the Text, image or button and click on the “Link” button in the blocks toolbar.
- Enter “#(The HTML Anchor that you created in step 4)” and press “Enter” to create a link to a specific part of the page.
- Now, whenever a user clicks on the link they will be guided to the heading that you selected in step 2.
For Other Sites:
Now assuming that you don’t have control over the site and the site hasn’t created any page jumps by themselves, there is still one way to direct the link towards a particular part of the page. Therefore, in this step, we will be linking towards a particular part of the page. For that:
- Suppose that you want to direct the link to a particular answer on a forum.
- Scroll down and highlight the answer.
- Right-click on the highlighted answer and select “Inspect“.
- Inspect will show the elements for the highlighted part.
- You will see a particular “<div” that is branching out and giving smaller “<div…” commands.
- In that “<div“, the words “id=“answer-(number)”” will be shown.
- Select all the words inside the commas after “id=“, Right–click on them and select “Copy”.
- Note down these words and enter them with a “#” at the end of the site’s address.
- For example,
If the URL was:
