I know how to create a navigation menu, and I know how to create anchor links. But I cannot figure out how to create a navigation menu which links to a series of anchor links throughout the page. Specifically, the page I want to modify is:

I used a bunch of buttons to accomplish the task, but this was time consuming and seems kind of unprofessional looking. I would like a navigation menu to accomplish the same thing.

Hello indyfolkseries3021,

Unfortunately, the SiteBuilder Plus does not have an option to create an anchor link from the navigation menu. The option is only available if you are creating ordinary text links or buttons.

The best suggestion I can give is to use the Style and Effects feature on the Navigation menu and change the navigation menu to "text" and then in the use a separate text box to create the text with the anchor link. This will help maintain consistency.

We'll send your request to our developers as you are not the first person to ask for this. Thanks!

thanks for the response, although I'm disappointed. It sure does seem like there's a lot of things SiteBuilder "Plus" doesn't do:
-can't create tables
-cant link from Page A to an anchor link on Page B
-can't create drop down menus
-can't upload multiple pictures at once

Perhaps SiteBuilder"Lite" would be a bit descriptive to those who are considering using the software?

Good morning, I was browsing through some older topics and found this one. You can link from page A to an anchor link on page B. The option isn't available on the navigation menu, but you can do it from a standard text link. Follow these instructions.

Thanks

I would like to create an anchor link from nav menu.


Used to be able to create anchor links from the navigation menu links. Where is that option now??
