(NOTE: You can access all the shortcodes via the shortcodes icon on your visual editor. See this document if you need more information.)

The Menu Anchor shortcode lets you link from one spot in a page to another spot. This is often used to create a menu for a long page that links to the different sections of the page.

In addition, you can also link from one spot in a post to another specific spot in another post.

As an example of a Menu Anchor, you can click this link to go to the bottom of this page.

Here's a look at the settings. There isn't much to do. Just put in the word you'd like to use for your link.

Here's a sample shortcode.

 

In order to get your link set up, put the shortcode wherever you'd like to link to on your page. In the example above, the shortcode on this page is at the bottom of the page.

You will then need to create a link to the shortcode. Do that by creating a link as you normally would, but instead of putting in a URL, put in a hashtag, plus the name you set up in your shortcode.

For example, I've set the name in my shortcode to be "bottom," and so in the link box, I put #bottom in the URL spot.

In order to link from one page to another, set up your shortcode on the page where you will link to as mentioned above, and then you can link to that spot by including the full URL of the page + the hashtag and name.

So, for example, if you have a page called mysite.com/this-is-my-page/, and you want to link to the bottom of that page, set up a shortcode at the bottom of that page with a name like "bottom" and then set the link URL as mysite.com/this-is-my-page/#bottom.

 

 

*****************

The shortcode is placed just above this text so that when the link is clicked, you arrive at this spot.
