Linking to a Section on a Different Page in Webflow

When building a website, it’s essential to create a smooth navigation experience for users. One way to enhance this experience is by linking to specific sections on different pages. In this tutorial, we will learn how to create page anchors and link them using Webflow.

Creating Page Anchors

To link to a specific section on a different page, we first need to create an anchor point. An anchor is essentially an ID assigned to a particular section or element on the page. Let’s say we have a section with the ID “section-1” on our Target page.

Open your Target page in Webflow and locate the section you want to link to. In the Settings panel, under the Element Settings tab, assign the ID “section-1” to the section.

Linking Using URL and Hashtags

Now that we have our anchor created, we can link to it using a combination of URLs and hashtags. The URL will be the name of the Target page, followed by a hashtag (#), and then the ID of the section we want to link.

For example, let’s say our Target page is named “about.html,” and we want to link to “section-1” within that page. The URL for our link would be “about.html#section-1”.

Note: Make sure you use proper file extensions (.html) when specifying the Target page’s name.

Creating Links in Webflow

In Webflow, creating links with anchors is straightforward. Select the text or element you want to turn into a link, and click on the Link settings in the sidebar.

In the Link settings, choose External URL as your link type. Then enter your desired URL using the format mentioned earlier (e.g., about.html#section-1).

Additionally, you can customize the link’s appearance and behavior using Webflow’s styling options and interactions.

Creating a Navigation Menu

A common use case for linking to sections on different pages is creating a navigation menu. Let’s say we have a navigation menu on our homepage, and we want to include links to specific sections on other pages.
