    Sorry if this is a noob question but how do I link to a specific point on another page? I have several long pages and I want to link to text down the page from the top.
    Using anchor: <a name=”label”></a>A Heading Part Way Down the Page
    <a name=”label”></a>A Heading Part Way Down the Page
    doesn't work as the page links are dynamic and changes I make to those lins are either stripped when the html is validated or simply breaks the link. I also tried to specific generic items lower on the page but could not get that to work either.
    My thanks in advance for your assistance.
    Marc

    Actually this is not a bad question. I have been trying to figure this out myself. The documentation (http://www.sitefinity.com/documentation/documentationarticles/content-writer-s-guide/the-text-editor/inserting-and-removing-hyperlinks) seems to indicate that you can do it quite easily but I haven't been able to get it to work. I also want to be able to use a list control to automatically list the anchors on the page.

    Having the same issue. Why is it so hard for end users to insert anchor tags on pages? I add them manually most of the time, but surely there is an easier way for the non technical. Anyone have any suggestions?
