Creating a link within a page or a post in WordPress

Sometimes, if you have a long page or post, there might be times when you want something to link to another spot on the same page. This can be done with creating and linking to anchors. This does involve a little html, but in this video I make that painless.

<embed src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="300"></embed>

HTML that was used:

This is when using a heading, eg. H3
<h3 id=”tutorial2″>WordPress Tutorial 2</h3>

This is when the text was bolded
<p id=”tutorial3″><strong>WordPress Tutorial 3</strong></p>

Plain text
<p id=”tutorial4″>WordPress Tutorial 4</p>

  1. They’re actually called anchor points Bob.

    You can also add them automatically (by linking to sub heading tags – h3) using different plugins in your content area or sidebar.

    This is what i use for anchor points

    • Hey Brad, thanks for the clarification, and yes, I do know what they are “officially” called. My audience is fairly low tech and don’t really need the exact term as much as they just need to know how to do it.

      And I agree, if you are doing a lot of these a plugin would make it easier. But for just a page or two, I feel it’s better doing it this way instead of adding yet another plugin to your site.
