    I'm trying to link a text to a certain place in the website page. 
    To clarified, I have a list of products (index) at the top of the page and below it a long list of products and their features. I want that clicking the product's name at the top of the page will take me right to the product features. 
    The products index and the products are in the same page.
    Can I do it?

      Unfortunately linking within the same page or to an area on a specific page (anchoring) is not possible yet on Wix.

    I'm trying to add a link on my website inside one of teh buttons but it keeps saying it's not a valid link. I read the first post her and it sounds like it's related to my issue but I couldn't entirely understand the answer.

    This is the link: a href="https://www.psychselect.com/cgi-bin/therapyappointment/login.cfm?practitioner=4142" target="_blank">Set Appointment Now</a

      Hi dfinman,


      Please note that your link (URL) is only this part:  https://www.psychselect.com/cgi-bin/therapyappointment/login.cfm?practitioner=4142


      Please add the above mentioned link to your button (step 5 in the instructions at the top of the thread). This should work.


      Let us know if you still require assistance!

      Thank you

    A list was posted of the substitutions needed in URLs when making links to outside site.

    However, in that list no mention was made of the symbol  ?  which my URL is using.  Therefore, the link that I would like to create is not possible at this time.  Do you know or can you create a code for the question mark symbol so that I can make a link in my wix site?   Thank you.

    Example:    www.bigshow.com/video_new[   >>>> www.bigshow.com/video_new%3

                       www.bigshow.com/audio_new?  >>>>www.bigshow.com?audio_new(what goes here?)

      Please note: The URL address: www.example.com/#!|page_name|24c6

      Your Wix HTML5 website is built using HTML5 and AJAX technology . This has many benefits including the ability to have animated page transitions, your own  background, a header and footer that stay static while the rest of your content is dynamic, use of all of the new HTML features as they are released, dynamic page sizing and optimization for mobile devices.


      You can find more information about the structure of the URL address here.


      Than you,

      If you want your Wix site to have a link to an external web site, please follow these steps:


      1. Launch your site in the Wix Editor.

      2. Add an item you want to function as the link (such as a button or text).

      3. Select the item. The Settings panel will appear on the left of your screen.

      4. If you added a button, you'll see the Link To option on that panel. Select it.

      5. Now select Web Address.

      6. Input your link and click OK.


      You can find additional information on linking here.


      Let us know if you need any additional help!

    Hi constancedamron,


    Yes, it should be possible to link a button to a subpage. 

    Are you encountering any difficulties?

    Hi! Is it possible to add a button with a link to a sub page?

    I have created a drop-down menu for 3 galleries on a photography portfolio page. Since there isnt an option to deactivate the first level of this menu I would like to add 3 buttons that link to the other gallery pages from the first level page. I would also like for these three buttons to be available on all three gallery pages for easy navigation. Any suggestions?

    Hi gezinsvriendelijkgen,

    Please try the following:

    If you're experiencing issues with your Wix editor, you may want to try the following steps first:
    1. Open your browser to a blank page. Close any Wix pages that are open.
    2. Clear your browser's cache and cookies of "Everything". You can find step-by-step instructions here.
    3. Restart your browser and then log into your Wix account and try again. If this doesn't work, then continue on to Step 6.
    4. Try using other browsers to open Wix. Recommended browsers include Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and either IE or Safari (depending on whether you use a PC or a MAC).
    5. If you connect to the internet through a router, please try connecting directly through the modem. Then follow Steps 2-5 again.
    6. Try connecting to Wix from a different computer that uses a different network to connect to the internet.


    Thank You,

    It sounds as though you have an html code and need to place it on your site through an html add-on. Read about how to do it through here.
