    Hello Abdul,

    Does the link not appear when you create it this way? Do you have an example of the line of code you are using for this link that we can review?

    I look forward to assisting on this!

    Hi there,

    Is it possible to create an anchor tag on the Help Center homepage? For example, if they click a link at the top of the Help Center, it brings them all the way down to where our Knowledge Base is?

    Yes, if I understand what you are looking to do. 

    Here is a snippet from my test homepage. The bold "Link" href jumps to the named H1. 

     <section class="section knowledge-base">
         <section class="categories blocks">
              <section class="container">

                      <ul class="blocks-list">
                           <p><a href="#link">Link</a></p>
                            <li class="blocks-item custom"> . . . </li>

                            <li class="blocks-item custom"> . . . </li>


                       <h1><a name="link">Link</a></h1>

    Is it possible to anchor link to a heading that isn't H1? For our Style Guide, we prefer headings to be H3 and would find great value in anchor linking - but right now the only way I can get anchor linking to work is if I use H1 for my headers.

    Hi Dawn,

    By clicking the Anchor button and choosing Heading, you should be able to choose from the headings in your article, regardless if they're H1 or not:

    Thanks Giuseppe! For some reason I wasn't seeing that earlier, but now I do.
