Can I make a fixed position button that will link to top of page?
I have a long menu, and I would like a fixed position button that the user can click at anytime to get back to the top. Instead of the user having to search for the button, I would like it to scroll with the page. Is this possible?

For those of you who are asking about making a menu link to an anchor...
1. Create the anchor where you want it to appear on the page (I recommend using anchor settings to rename your anchor to a word that describes its location on the page - i.e., Benefits)
2. Go to the menu at the top of the page and find the menu item that goes with the link (i.e., Benefits).
3. Highlight the word or phrase on the menu (must be in edit mode for that text box where your menu appears) and on the edit toolbar select the link icon.
4. From your link icon choices, select anchor. The anchor option will default to the page you are on. A second drop down option will be available to select from the anchors on that page (reason for naming the anchors, rather than using the numbering default). Select the anchor you want, which will make the menu word you highlighted (i.e., Benefits) a hyperlink to that point on your page where the associated anchor is located.
I did this for a long page where I listed all of the staff and leadership at our church at the top of the page, by category. I then created an anchor for each person, placing the anchors just above each person's name and renaming the anchors by that person's first name and last initial (we have 2 Bobs). I then created when to the menu of names, highlighted each name and created a link to the associated anchor for that person on the page.
You can also create hyperlinks from a word on one page and from the edit toolbar, select link and pick the option to link to another page or anchor on a page.
Hope this helps some of you... good luck!

Will someone from Wix please respond to my question that started this thread. I want to know...
Will the anchors that are visible on my mobile view while editing it, be visible to viewers once I publish?
I want the anchor to be active on a mobile device, but I don't want it to be physically visible (the blue anchor line and tab).

In response to the 'Ranalee' and 'Yotam' (Wix Team) Thread.
I also am trying to link an Anchor Point to my Menu Bar (as Ranalee thoroughly explained).
If it cant be done in Wix. How did you do this on the Wix website (link below)? This is exactly what me and Ranalee are trying to achieve??
Ironically ...... its a 'Showcase' for the Anchor function ...... ? I assume this was designed outside of Wix .... not the best advertisement I feel? DOH!
Thanks in advance

I have anchors inserted on several pages of my desktop view. I see them and want them on my mobile view and have moved them to the proper location on my mobile view.
My question is... Will my customers see the anchors on my mobile view once I publish my site? I am assuming that I am only seeing them now, because I am editing my mobile view, right?
Once I get my answer to this question and one additional piece of content, I will publish my site. Anticipating publishing tomorrow (7/29/14).

There is no real way to link to an image, but you can use an anchor instead. Just place the anchor at the place where the image you want to link to is, then go back to the page with the image you would like to link from, and set the anchor link onto the image.

Hi, I just set a button which should link to the anchor (both they are on the same page), but it seems doesn't work, I pressed the button and nothing happen, how should I do?

I don't think there is any way to get a menu bar to link to an anchor, but you could just make a fake menu with buttons, and boxes . . . and make the buttons link to the anchor. This will keep you from making sub pages though.
