How To Add A Link (Hyperlink) Or Jump Link

You can use the anchor tag to create links to go to another webpage or another section of the same webpage.

  • Anchor Tag And The Hyperlink
    Use the code below to create a link to another webpage. Replace the nextpage.html with the name of the next webpage. If the next page is stored in the same folder as the current webpage, you do not need to use the complete URL address of the next webpage. However if the next webpage is not part of your website, you will use the complete URL (including http://) such as


    <a href="nextpage.html">Name of next page</a>

  • Anchor Tag And Jump Link
    Use the code below to create a link that will jump to another area on the same webpage. For example a link at the bottom of the page that will jump back to the top of the page. Replace the JumpHere with a text identifier. The identifier can be any word or combination of letters. Place the first code segment at the place you wish to jump to and place the second code segment at the place you wish to jump from. Replace the Name of link with the name of the link such as Back to Top.

    NOTE: In the first code segment the is optional.
    This is a "short" version which may not work on every hosting server or webpage. You may need to use the complete URL address (including http://) of the current webpage. Place the complete URL in front of the #JumpHere.

    <a name="JumpHere"></a>

    <a href="#JumpHere">Name of link</a>
