Working with Anchors

Anchors are a great way to navigate between or link to specific sections in your article, like manually inserting invisible bookmarks (though if you're looking for something automatic and cool, see here: Article Table of Contents).

Our new editor does not have a dedicated "Insert Anchor" button. However, the "Insert Link" button can be used instead!

To add an anchor in the new editor:

  1. Click the Insert Link button
  2. Type your anchor name into the Name field (no spaces, but hyphens are allowed, e.g. this-is-an-anchor)
  3. Leave the other fields blank

To insert a link to an anchor within the same article:

  1. Click the Insert Link button
  2. Type the anchor name into the URL field, and add a # in front of it (e.g. #this-is-an-anchor)
  3. Type the way you want the link to look into the Text field (e.g. Click Here)

To insert a link to an anchor in a different article:

  1. Navigate to the article you're linking to, and copy the article's URL after the .com (for example, this article's URL is https://support.knowledgeowl.com/help/working-with-anchors - we need /help/working-with-anchors)
  2. Click the Insert Link button and paste the URL into the URL field
  3. Add a # to the end of the URL, followed by the anchor name (e.g. /help/working-with-anchors#this-is-an-anchor)
  4. Type the way you want the link to look into the Text field (e.g. Click Here)
