Jump links, or anchor links, refer to links that direct to specific parts of a page, rather than the entire page itself. This may be useful for linking to elements further down the page for faster access, or for linking from external pages to direct readers instantly to a specific part of the page.
To create a jump link, type a user friendly, hyphen separated slug within the ‘HTML Anchor’ field, located within the ‘Advanced’ panel of Block Settings.
To link to the HTML anchor, type the anchor name into any URL input field, proceeded by the pound (#) symbol.
Note: HTML Anchors may currently only be set on Headings, though more widespread support may become available in the future.
Learn more about HTML Anchor syntax and usage at WordPress.org’s Page Jumps article.
