how do I link text from my index page to a specific spot on another page?
I have an anchor link already established in the proper area but I am having trouble linking the text on my index page to that anchor link

First, you will create a normal anchor link, on the page which you want to direct the visitors to. So, you'll complete the steps in this thread:

Once you have the anchor link created, you'll need to publish that page as you'll have to get the url from the live web page which I'll show below.

1. After you publish the page with the anchor link, pull up the live website in a new browser window. You'll need to click on the link that you just created so that it moves you down the screen to where the anchor was placed. In my example I created a page named "page 6". Notice the URL highlighted in yellow

2. After you click on the link that takes you to the anchor, you'll see the URL change to reflect the anchor link.

3. Next return to SiteBuilder (or SiteBuilder Plus). In my example I created "page 5". You can either use a link in your navigation menu, or, just add a text box to the page. When you get to the Link dialogue box, you will click the 2nd radio button titled "URL (Web Address)".

4. Next you will return to the window which has your live website opened and copy the entire URL

5 Return to the SiteBuilder link box and paste the URL as shown. Make sure you capture the full URL containing the added link info at the end.

6. Click OK, and publish the page. You will know have a link from one page to an anchor on different page.

I hope this helps!
