Internal Jump Link Creating Step by Step
Introduction to Jump Linking
I finally unravelled the available information on internal ‘jump’ linking. I don’t know if this is the formal name for these but I use ‘jump’ as it allows me to jump internally all over the place. Now I know how to do this I can make myself dizzy jumping all around!
So after reading all the information I could find in the help section I copied the pertinent information onto a Word document. Then I started trying to decipher them and cross reference to get a simple (to me) and logical (also to me as my logic tends to run in circles)!
After apparently getting an answer to the link format several times and it not working I started a trial and error testing of the links. And finally success.
I have set this tutorial out using one of my website pages and one post. These are the actual items I wanted to link so this exercise is in ‘real time’.
I will firstly present a list of the general coding used. Then I will do three examples.
- Jump link from bottom to top of page
- Jump link from one part of a page to another place on the same page
- Jump link from a specific location in a page or post to a specific location within another page or post.
For these examples I will present each link in text and then visual mode so you can see what you need to do and how it ends up looking.
So let’s start with a glossary of the terms I use. If the names are not the normal ones for any of these let me know and I will update the terms and start using them myself.
