Anchor links to anchor on page and to another page.

The directions for this are incomplete and difficult to follow. Has anyone successfully implemented this and can you share some code?

    The problem with this solution is it opens a new window. I want it to stay and change in the same window.

    Can we get an ETA on when this will be implemented? Next month, next year, sometime?

    This seems to only work if the element being linked to is on the home page. Linking to an element on another page does not appear to work.

    For example,
    domain.com/#innerText32__Text32 - WORKS
    domain.com/info.html/#innerText32__Text32 - DOESNT WORK

    Hello Jack

    To create anchor links to other pages please follow these instructions:

    Step 1: Publish your site and navigate to the page you’d like to link to

    Step 2: Find the target element you’d like to use as an anchor link and highlight it

    Step 4: Right-click your mouse and select “Inspect Elements” (Chrome & Firefox) and find the element name (div ID), separated by quotation marks from the code. A typical name would be innerImage45__Image45, innerText32__Text32 etc.

    Step 4: Create a new Url combining the page full URL followed by # and the div ID. A typical URL would behttp://domainname.com/#innerImage62__Image62

    Step 5: Add link to your menu, define it as “External Link” and link it to the URL you have created

    If you are still having trouble, please feel free to contact support@webydo.com and we can assist you.
