Using Anchors (from http://www.wikispaces.com/wikitext+anchor#Grapes)

An anchor is a way to link one part of a page to another. They are often used at the top of a page so that people can jump directly to a section that is farther down without having to scroll to find it.

Anchors have 2 parts.

Part 1: The anchor point. i.e. The place you are linking to.
1. Go to the part of the page where you want the link to jump to (usually located farther down the page).
2. Type in Type the brackets and the # sign. Replace nameoftheanchor with the actual text you want to be the name of the anchor. In the examples above, we use .

Part 2: The link.
1. At the top of the page (or wherever you want your anchor link list to appear), highlight the text that you want to use as your link.
2. Click on the link button in the toolbar (it looks like a globe). For Page Name, select the name of the page you want to link to. This is most often going to be the page you are currently working on.
3. Click the "Link to anchor?" link, which will then display a box into which you can type the anchor name. So in the example above, you would type the word apples in to the Anchor box, since this is what you put inside the anchor code in Part 1.
