If you want to have your students click a link at the top of your lesson and be taken to a different spot inside this same lesson, you can do this with anchor tags!
- The anchor tag code will consist of two HTML elements. First, you'll want to create the link pointing to the anchor.
<a href="#anchor">Click Me</a>
- The second part of an anchor tag is the anchor itself. The anchor should be placed at the beginning of the line where you want to start reading after you jump to:
<a name="anchor">Destination upon click</a>
For example, if the text is "Read more about pizza!" then your HTML should look like this:
<a href="#pizza">Read more about pizza!</a>
The above anchor link only works when you are jumping to a specified spot in the same lesson. If you want a link to jump a specific location in a different lesson or even course, you'll need to replace #anchor with the full URL for the page, similar to:
<a href="https://yoursite.thinkific.com/courses/take/demo/texts/1751013-favourite-foods#pizza">Link Text</a>
