Use anchor links to help your visitors navigate to a specific section of your content without scrolling.

Please note: it is strongly recommended not to use anchor links in emails as anchor tags don't work in all email clients. Anchor links also won't work in the email preview in HubSpot.

In the rich text editor, click Insert > Anchor.

  • Give the anchor a name, which will be included in the link URL. If you want to use more than one word for your anchor, separate each word with dashes (-). In the example below, the anchor is named step-2. Then, click OK.

  • The anchor will appear in the location you clicked into. Next, create the link that sends the visitor to the section of the page where the anchor was inserted.
  • Highlight the text to hyperlink in the content body. In the example below, skip to step 2 is highlighted.
When the text is highlighted, click Insert > Link.
  • In the rich text toolbar, click the linklinkdiicon.
    • If the anchor you are linking to is on the same page as your link, enter the # symbol followed by the name of the anchor in the URL field. In the example below, #step-2 is entered in the URL field.
    • If the anchor you are linking to is on a different page as the link, include the URL of the page followed by the # symbol, followed by the name of the anchor. For example, http://offers.hubspot.com/product-guide#step-2.
  • Click Add link.
