Make your Website Fun to Navigate with Anchor Links

July 16th 2014 | Wix Updates

We recently added a smart (and fun) feature to our product that we’re really excited about . Anchor links are a helpful navigation tool that gives your site visitors an easy and pleasant navigation experience.

Anchor links allow your site visitors to find useful information quickly, without having to scroll up, down or move to another page. A single click on an anchor link will take them exactly where they want to go: back to top, down to the bottom or straight to your FAQ page.

If you’re a regular internet user, most chances are you’ve already experienced the smooth navigation anchor links enable ,while browsing long-scrolling websites like Pinterest and Flickr.
