How does one use an anchor on a page in 2022?
There was an anchor in our editor and it seems to have left the page.

I still see the anchor in the Editor. It's the black flag icon on the far right on the second row.

I’ve been working with Gwen on anchors. Now I can create an anchor using Class Creator so when there is a link on the same page, clicking the link will take you to the anchor. That works for links and anchors on the same page. I’d now like to use CC to write an anchor on page 1 and a link to it on page 2. This is what happened when I followed the suggestion on one of the anchor page discussions. The page with the anchor, #Hope, is https://www.nileseast64reunion.org/Our-Bulletin-Board.htm (yes, htm, I copied and pasted here), while the page with the link is https://www.nileseast64reunion.org/iReport-From-Maggianos.htm. The syntax of the link is https://www.nileseast64reunion.org/Our-Bulletin-Board.htm#Hope takes me to the Our-Bulletin Board page, but to the top, NOT to the anchor. HELP!

I can't see your the page to examine details here but here's one that works. Look at source and maybe you can see what is different. I'm assuming you used the editor's "Anchor" tool.

This points to a test page to show that anchors work,

First link jumps to second image anchor
Second jumps to third image anchor

Barry,

Here's how we do it on our site, using my equivalent of your page 1 and 2.

To start, please look at my page 2 equivalent: https://www.eastlongmeadowhighschool1970.com/In-Memory-FacultyStaff.htm

First, scroll down to Craig Low's tribute, the first one. Above the rose icon, I created an anchor titled, "Low, Craig."

Now, scroll back up the page to the index of names till you find "Mr. Craig Low - mathematics." For "Mr. Craig Low," I created a link to his anchor. If you click on his name, you're taken to his anchor and you'll see this URL: https://www.eastlongmeadowhighschool1970.com/In-Memory-FacultyStaff.htm#Low,%20Craig.

Now you want to copy and paste this URL in the link on your page 1.

For proof this works, go to my page 1, https://www.eastlongmeadowhighschool1970.com/FacultyStaff-Update.htm, and scroll down to the mathematics department and click on "Mr. Craig Low." You'll be taken to his anchor on page 2.

Please feel free to call me at home, 530-964-3140 if you wish me to walk you through this.
