    Default Link to anchor

    I am currently using Xara web designer 6 and i wanted to know if it is possible to link to an anchor on a separate page.

    For example i have a page called Framing Systems with the anchor point about half way down the page. i want to be able to click the link which is in a navigation bar on a different page called Literature, but when i click the link it just keeps me on the literature page. I have tried everything that i can think of and nothing will work for me. If anyone has any ideas or solutions i would greatly appreciate it

    Hello jib, welcome to the forum.

    Try something like this for your link:

    http://www.yourwebsite.com/html_links.htm#tips

    You may or may not need the full URL if the page is in the same folder on your web server as the origination page, or if you are using relative links anyway.

    Note the pound symbol between the page name and the word "tips." Of course, for this to work you need the anchor in-place.

    Take care, Mike

    When creating an anchor you always have to have a Named point on your page. In other words, to "point" to a place on your page for Framing Systems, you need to name it:
    Code:
    <A name="Framing">Framing Systems</a>
    and then you have to put in the link:
    Code:
    <a href="http://www.yourpagename.com/#Framing">Framing Systems</a>
    You'll have to put the name in your HTML part of your page manually - I don't think that Xara can do that for you, but the link you put to the framing section in your nav bar with the #Framing (or whatever you want to call it) it should work. Message me off-line if you want some help with your behind the scenes HTML...

    Nice - it does do it for you! Thanks for pointing that out, you used to have to do it manually!
