Adding anchors to text:


For a table of contents:

Type the text that you would like to act as the heading for your table of contents.


Type the text that you would like the make the table of contents link to (the anchor).


Select the text that you would like to make the anchor. On the toolbar, click insert and HTML/JavaScript:



In the dialogue box, you need to enter some HTML code which will do two things:

  1. Give the anchor a reference name
  2. Make the anchor display as you'd like it to



The code is as follows:


<a name="anchor_ref"> <h1>Title</h1></a>


You need to change the bits in yellow:

  1. Change anchor_ref needsto something short and simple, with no characters.
  2. Change Title to whatever you would like the text to display as. 


For example, for a subheading about assessment and feedback, I would use the following code:

<a name="assessment"> <h1>Assessment & feeedback</h1></a>


Click next and then insert plugin. The plugin will then display like this in the version you are editing:



It will display like this in the published version:



You can test it by clicking save at the bottom of the window you're editing.


Next, you need to add a link from the text to the anchor.


Select the text that you want users to be able to click on to go to the anchor and click Insert a link to a new page on the right hand navigation:
