Intrapage Link or Page Jump

Page Jumps or Hop Links allow you to move from one location to another very quickly.

Recently I created a tutorial hub, What is a Hyperlink? Adding Hyperlinks to Text, which detailed how to create hyperlinks in your hubs on HubPages. That hub did not address the creation of what I have heard being referred to as intrapage links or “Page Jumps”. So let’s look at them now.



What is an Intrapage Link or Page Jump?

An intrapage link or page jump is very similar to the hyperlinks mentioned in the above referenced hub. A intrapage link or page jump allows you to jump from one article to another or to another location in the same hub by creating links through images/pictures. Just by clicking on text that is hyperlinked with an image’s information, you can jump from one location to an image anywhere on the World Wide Web. When I first learned this technique I was very excited to add this method to my toolbox.

Before we get started, let’s go look at a couple articles that are utilizing this method.


First Example of an Intrapage Link or Page Jump

In the first article, Spider Robot Printed Into Existence Using New Technology, the intrapage link or page jump you will be using takes you to a reference source image. By clicking on the text that is hyperlinked, you will be transported to a picture of the actual robot that was printed into existence. First of all, click on the hyperlink above (in this paragraph) to go to this article about a spider robot. Then scroll down to the bottom of the article where you will find the hyperlink: “Jumping 3D printed spider-bots created to help save lives not enslave them”.

Click on this text. You should have been transported to an amazing picture of the spider.


Since this picture was not able to be used legally, I had to find a way to share the image with my readers. This was the method I chose.


Second Example of an Intrapage Link or Page Jump

Let’s look at another example. I created 5 hubs about nebulae. The first hub in the series, What is a Nebula? Part 1, Different Kinds of Nebulae, contains an alphabetical listing of the nebulae that are featured in this series. The information about the nebulae themselves can be found on hubs two through five. By clicking on any of the nebula names found in the list on Part 1, you will be taken to the image of the nebula that you selected on one of the other hubs. Check it out for yourself.


Finding an Image’s Number

First things first! Before we can create the intrapage link or page jump, we need to find the name of the image. Let’s look at that now.

While in edit mode, locate the image that you would like to jump to. I have selected the Carina Nebula image to demonstrate this point. Place your cursor over the image and right click. Select the option “Save image as…” You will receive a box with a number in it. See below:

The number you are going to want to remember is 5785739.


Creating the Hoplink

To create the intrapage link or page jump, will require you to place three pieces of information together.


The first piece of information you will need is the URL of the hub where the image you want to hop to is in. This can be the same hub, a different hub (which doesn’t even have to be yours), or any file on the World Wide Web. In this case it is http://homesteadbound.hubpages.com/hub/What-is-a-Nebula . . . Nebulae-A-C. Note that you need to include the “http://”.

The second bit of information that you need will be the same for all hop links created. It is the text #img_url_ (pound sign, letter "i", letter "m", letter "g", underscore, letter "u", letter "r", letter "l", underscore)

Note that this text immediately follows the hub’s URL without any spaces.

And the third piece of information is the number we obtained in the section above, Finding the Image’s Number, which was 5785739. Note that this number does not contain the _f260 part of the number obtained in that section.


I often keep a text window such as Word open during this process so that I can cut and paste the information together.

Attaching Intrapage Link or Page Jump to Text

Now that you have all this information compiled, it is time to use it. Go to the text that you want to attach the hyperlink to and select it. In this case, I selected the text, Carina Nebula.

Then click on the chain link symbol (see right). This will bring you to the screen you see below.

Enter the intrapage link or page jump text into the box as shown above. Make sure there are no spaces in the link and that underscores are placed as shown. Then click on the "update" button.

Save the text capsule. Select "done editing" to close your hub. Next test your link by clicking on the hyperlinked text you just created. Upon clicking on the text you should be transported to the image that you wanted to go to. Did it work? I hope so!

Happy Hubbing ...

Alaster - I hope you have the opportunity to use an intrapage link sometime. They work really well if you want to provide a table of contents and allow you reader to make a page jump from there to their chosen location. Glad it appeared to be easy!

Great hub Cindy,

I followed the links to the Flickr image.

Sometimes this is the only way to truly appreciate these great images.

Hyperlinks and page jumps are perfect for this.

It makes it so much easier for the reader to navigate.

I like the way you used the hop links and kept the landing page open so it was easy to get back to the jump off page.

Well done great hub 4/5 votes and sharing.
