  1. I attempted to follow directions but when I click on link, it just takes me to blogger edit page, not the part of the document that I desired. Thoughts?

    1. Yeah this is because after following this post you switched to text composer so blogger automatically added a link which takes you to edit page. Don't worry you have done everything write now just switch back to html composer and find the target text(step 4). You will find something similar to this line:

      <a ref="https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=82938298392393382#target text>

      Now you have to remove this https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=82938298392393382 and after removing it publish the post without switching to composer tab, it will work properly, remember to do this every time you edit a post having anchor links. If you still have any problem ask me.

    1. The reason it doesn't jump is after making an anchor link don't switch to "compose" editor just stay on HTML editor and publish your post

  5. I, too, followed the instructions, and the links are still active, but when I click on them I'm directed to a page saying, "Sorry, the page you were looking for in this blog does not exist." I didn't switch to Compose. Any idea what happened?

    1. Make sure that you have given ID to the div you are trying to jump to. And make sure to put #YOUR DIV ID in the link. Like this:

      < a href = '#Pagebottom' >JUMP

      And Div ID should be like:

      < div id = 'Pagebottom' >



      Don't put # in the div id and never remove # from <a tag

  6. Thanks. Worked great! ...Except for the links to other pages' anchors. Is there a way to make those work as well?

    1. Links to other posts can also be anchored by adding #ID OF DIV at the end of your other posts links for example https://101helper.blogspot.com/p/download-template.html#bottom this link will take you to bottom of one of my page.

  8. can this work with images? I want to make a comic but i want to use the scroll function since if I embed a powerpoint into a post it will make it blurry. like i want to click on an image and it smooth scrolls to the next page (not open the image)

    1. Yes it will work if you use link attribute in html and use anchor trigger as image, when a person will click on image he will jump to anchor. Its same as shown in this post, the only difference is of image instead of text.

  9. Thank you so much for the information on anchor links. They work perfectly. But can you never, ever go back to compose, even after you've published the post? I edited the post after it had been published. When I looked at it after I'd updated it, the anchor links took me to my dashboard.

    1. Hi Trisa, You are really right it happens exactly but at the time you edit a post then switch to HTML editor of post and jump to each of your anchor link, you will see that a www.blogger.com link is added to each of your anchor link automatically by blogger. All you need to do is to remove these links and leave the anchor links as they were in the beginning and after that publish it without switching post editor from HTML.

  10. Thanks for the reply. That's sort of maddening, but easy enough to fix.
