Anchors (Jump to another part of the page)
Text and images can be set as anchors (also called "bookmarks") that can be linked to within a page. For example, if a page has several new items, the news titles for each item can be set as bookmarks and a row of links can be added to the top of the page that will each skip down to those bookmarked sections. This method of using bookmarks allows visitors to your site to quickly access information by not having to scroll down the page to view the information they want.
You can create an anchor by using the Anchor tool from the Insert menu.
Select the image, shape or rollover image you want to link and select Insert->Link from the menu bar, click the link button on the toolbar. Note that there is also a Link tab in the images properties window.
Link to a page on another web site
Set the Link To option to Web Site. Enter the full URL (Internet Address) of the destination page in the URL box. External URLs MUST begin with "http://" or they will not work.
For example, to link to the Pablo Software Solutions home page, type "http://www.pablosoftwaresolutions.com/" instead of "www.pablosoftwaresolutions.com".
Link to a page on your own web site
Set the Link To option to Internal Web Page. Click 'Select' to choose a page. This will list all pages which are part of the current web site project. Select one of the pages and a relative link will automatically be created (eg ./products.html).
Move the bookmark icon to the position where you want the page to jump to if the user clicks the link. In this case lets jump to the top of the page.
Once you have placed the anchor icon on your page, it can be selected from the Anchor dropdown list.
Make sure you give the anchor an unique name.
