HTML Links - Create Bookmarks


HTML links can be used to create bookmarks, so that readers can jump to specific parts of a web page.


Create a Bookmark in HTML

Bookmarks can be useful if a web page is very long.

To create a bookmark - first create the bookmark, then add a link to it.

When the link is clicked, the page will scroll down or up to the location with the bookmark.

Example

First, use the id attribute to create a bookmark:

<h2 id="C4">Chapter 4</h2>

Then, add a link to the bookmark ("Jump to Chapter 4"), from within the same page:

Example

<a href="#C4">Jump to Chapter 4</a>
Try it Yourself »

You can also add a link to a bookmark on another page:

<a href="html_demo.html#C4">Jump to Chapter 4</a>


Chapter Summary

  • Use the id attribute (id="value") to define bookmarks in a page
  • Use the href attribute (href="#value") to link to the bookmark
