And thanks for following up.
I had a chance to try placing anchors and testing them.
I was in the middle of writing a post on the subject when I ran across this problem.
Here is an excerpt from that post:
Inserting the anchor: Most anchor text tools let you highlight the text that you want ot anchor to and then just click. A dialog box pops up and asks you to name the link. You can choose any name that makes sense to you.
So far this has not worked for me in the tinyMCE Advanced tool. So here is the work-around: Highlight or place your cursor to the left of the text you will anchor to. Click the anchor tool button, then open the HTML tab and find the named link. It will look like this: .
Cut and paste the text you want to anchor to between the >< like this. your text goes here. Include any HTML code needed to display the text correctly like for bold. Go back to your visual editor and check for the little anchor icon to the left of your anchored text. If the anchor is there you have been successful. This is not as hard as it sounds.;-)
To link to your anchor:
Highlight the text or image you want to link from. Click the link tool. If you are linking to a named link on the same page, type in the name you chose for your link preceded by a #sign. Like this: #my link. Note: you must save a draft and preview the page to test your link.
To link to a “named anchor” on another page: Highlight the text you want to link to and open the link tool. In the url box enter the URL of the page that contains your “named anchor”: http://mysite/homepage/#mylink.
Thanks for sticking with me. As always I am trying to pass along information of value.
The best of luck with anchor text, leave me a comment if you have found this to be helpful or if you have something to add.
Othe anchor tools I have used inset the higlighted text beween the >< points. Is this the way it is supposed to work?
Other than this minor problem the anchors work as you described. You can see them in action at themlmworks
Sometimes I think I'm brain dead. Hopefully this post will be helpful to others
