In this article, you can learn about Page anchoring (anchor links) and how it can be used throughout your Page.
What are Page anchors?
Page anchors, also known as anchor links, allow you to directly link to a specific part of a Page, whether it’s from within a Page or from an external source.
How to copy a Page anchor
Anchor links are automatically attached to headers (headers 1, 2, and 3). They can be copied and sent to users to bring them to a specific section of a Page or to another Page. Simply:
- Click on the chain icon next to the header to copy it
- Paste it to a post, article, Text widget, message, etc.
Anchor links in the Table of Contents Widget
Anchor links attached to headers will also appear in the Table of Contents Widget, allowing for smooth navigation throughout the Page.

How to attach anchor links to text
Anchor links can also be attached to a body of text by:
- Clicking on Edit page
- Highlight the piece of text that you want to be anchored
- Select Add link from the text menu
- You can either:
- Select a Page in which the anchor will go to
- Select a header within the current Page in which the anchor will go to
- Click on Save
Why is an anchor sending me to the top of the Page?
When encountering an anchor that sends you to the top of the Page, it's essential to address a few questions:
Are there duplicate anchors on the Page, with one at the top and another closer to the bottom? If so, the solution is to remove the duplicate anchor
Has the anchor on the Page been modified, causing it to no longer match the hyperlinked URL? To resolve this, ensure that the anchor on the Page corresponds correctly to the hyperlinked URL
