How to Link Inside Your Own Hub?

    Perhaps my search-fu is just failing me, but how do you link inside your own hub? For example.. on the top of my page I have created a short index of what is on the page, is there a way to make it so the link will just bring the person to a particular section within the page?

    Or do I need to just code this with raw html? Is so, no biggie, just wondering if there is a faster method.

      Lets see if I can explain this one:
      Highlight your Text capsule title and right click to find properties and see the link. Copy that link and paste that link into the place in your index you want to take you to that text capsule.

    Look for a hub called Table of contents by Darkside

        Looks like you helped him with his problem just fine w/o an entire hub!

        but I guess for future readers who may need a little more explanation

          Yea, it shouldn't have taken me too long to figure out. I was just seeing if they had a faster method than to view raw html, which itself isn't a bad thing.. I grew up creating websites in notepad back in the day (before Dreamweaver, Frontpage, etc).

              I started learning during the early years of the internet, they didn't have all those fancy programs out there yet. It was a good experience, I started building online gaming guild websites back then... so I learned as I went.

    Well if your using firefox and can understand html and css - I think you should have Firebug installed for firefox.

    You would just be able to right click and inspect any element - super quick - no scanning through entire style sheets or source codes

      I do have the Firefox web developer, but I tend to not use it. As strange as it sounds, I'm right at home reading source codes. Worst case scenario, I just highlight a portion of the area and view source that way. I think it's just out of habit out of all these years.

    My first website was a members.aol.com site completely handcoded also (not very impressive - had alot of Count Duckula references though smile)- but I never touched a computer for such things again for about ten years.

    Firebug is a bit different then web developer - a little more streamlined - i felt web developer caused some lag

      Ah, one of my first websites was on aol.. think it was called something like Hotdog or something like that if I remember right. I also used Geocities back in the day (RIP). Eventually I struck out and got my own .com's but that was a bit later.

      I remember the early days of the internet where websites were "cool" if they were stuffed with rotating gifs, which by today's standards is pretty horrendous hahaha big_smile
