c. Publish the website

d. Find the target element you’d like to use as an anchor link and highlight it (this is the same element you previously set as an anchor)

e. Right-click your mouse and select “Inspect Elements” (Chrome & Firefox) and find the element name (div ID), separated by quotation marks from the code. A typical name would be innerShape1389__Shape1389, innerText32__Text32 etc.

<div id="whatever-you-want-to-call-it">

c. To link to this anchor add #whatever-you-want-to-call-it to the end of your page URL. 

Be sure to update the text based on the text you pasted into the HTML box. 

For example - if you paste in 

<div id="about">

Your anchor link will be or if the link is on an inside page
