page jumps?

    I'm working on a very long hub (right now it's at 2600 words), and I'd like to put page jumps in, so that someone could click on a title and skip to that part farther down on the same page. I know that in regular html, it looks something like this:


    And then the target would be tagged

    But it doesn't seem to work. I keep getting a message that hubpages is "cleaning up my html", and then when i test the page jump it doesn't work.

    Does anyone know if page jumps are possible on hubpages?

    HP has plenty of hoop jumps, but page jumps may be a bit technical for this tech crew so far.  They can't even keep the stats running smoothly of late!  yikes

    Yes - but you can only jump to the beginning of a module - so you'd have to ensure that you design the modules correctly.

    Add links in the format  'http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubname#mod_xxxxxxx'

    The #mod number is a number that is assigned to every module that you insert in a hub.
    Using Internet Explorer - go to your hub:
    1) Click on View Source
    2) Scroll down the source until you find your introduction text. Look for code like: div class="modfloat full"><div id="mod_20494979" class="module moduleText color0"

      OK, thank you, this is helpful.

      So in the link format http://hubpages.com/hub/Hubname#mod_xxxx

      What do I replace the first "hub" with?
      What about the "hubname"?
      Where would I find the names that I need to use?

      Thanks for your help!

        Replace "hubpages.com" with your subdomain. Then replace "Hubname" with the name of your Hub. Leave "/hub/" the way it is. Basically it's http://link.to/your-hub#mod_xxxx.

        The "#mod_xxxx" identifies a specific HTML element on a webpage. When you put "#mod_xxxx" at the end of the URL to a specific webpage, that tells the web browser "Go to the page, then go down to the element specified by the ID." So you just put the "#mod_xxxx" identifier at the end of the link to your hub.

        If you use Google Chrome (a much better web browser than Internet Explorer), you can right click on a module and select "Inspect Element." But either that or the view source method Simey mentioned will let you find the ID of the module.

          Thank you! I'll play around with it tomorrow.
