CMS + Anchor Points

Hi,

I started from there.

But managed to sort out everything that I needed. I’ve finally found the time to switch my project from static pages to CMS. Everything went pretty smoothly but I have one single issue which CMS doesn’t allow me to do: Anchor Points.

I searched everywhere on Webflow and in this forum but I can’t seem to put my hand on it. It seems like this option doesn’t exist yet in CMS. Do you have any tricks?

In CMS, the Link box doesn’t allow anything else other than links and we can’t create IDs either. If the Link box was allowing me to add ‘Plain text’ and create specific ID for my data, it would sort the whole thing out. (in theory)

How can I include back this simple interaction?
(An Anchor Point between the image you click on and the page which appears)

The old version of the website is still up here:

While the newest is here:


specifically

When you click on an image, it appears on a separated page on it own. When clicking back you should be arriving to the last image you’ve clicked on. Instead of arriving at the top of the page and having to scroll back down…

Cheers for your help!

Best
Laura

@laurajouan are you familiar with adding anchor links with custom code? With the new code embed options in rich text, that should now be possible.

Hi @sarahfrison,

Thank you for getting back to me. I’ve figured I would be heading toward custom code as I couldn’t create a fix while using ‘plain text’ in either boxes (ID or links).

How should I proceed with the custom code? Where can I get my hands on it? Are you able to supply it for me?

The help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

@laurajouan hi there! Thanks for waiting. I put together an example for you. I was hoping to use the CMS for more flexibility. I didn’t know dynamic embeds (what you need to link custom code with the cms) aren’t available for rich text fields. I created a project you can clone, this does require you to copy and paste the code each time but it works and that’s the main thing :slight_smile:.

You’ll want replace the ‘example’ with your unique anchor. Let me know if you’ve got extra questions :slight_smile:
