Actually Aubrey's answer is correct. The original question had to do with creating anchor links from the Navigation menu. Rodney's method will work if you are trying to create an anchor link from any other element, (text box, image, button, etc.). That function is still available.

The anchor link option was removed from the navigation menu because of the upgrade with the new master templates. If your site has a navigation menu inserted into the master template which is the normal way, then anchor links would take you to the wrong area on other pages.

This thread shows a work-around: https://community.homestead.com/homes...

When you are editing links on the navigation element, you'll get the following window. Notice there is not an option for an anchor link like in the 2nd picture below.

What you can do is create your own navigation links by using buttons or text boxes instead of the navigation element. Then you'll be able to create anchor links and you'll see the option like in this picture.

I hope this help everyone!
