Page Builder stripping out anchor

By bella, 6 years ago. Last reply by Andrew Misplon, 6 years ago.

I need anchors in a Page made with Page Builder. I can’t see how to do it within Page Builder, so I added the anchor to the location on the page that I need to link to using the text view and the HTML.

But when I click update, Page Builder strips the anchor out.

Can you let me know how to add anchors to this page. It’s a central concept on some of our pages. Thanks!

    If you inspect your page using your browser’s developer tool you’ll see there are already ID’s for each Page Builder panel. You can link to those.

    For example you might see a panel like this:

    <div class="panel widget widget_circleicon-widget panel-first-child panel-last-child" id="panel-1-0-0">

    You could link to it like this:


    Alternatively insert your own ID’s using the Text widget or Black Studio Visual Editor.

    Great. I found the ID with the developer tool. Thanks.

    One thing. The link takes the page about half way into the Page Bulder panel, which will confuse our users — the information they are linking to is off the top of the page. Is there any way of making the top of the panel load at the top of the page?

    You can link to any ID you can see in the source code so if the ID you’re linking to isn’t high enough up you can check the source and link to an ID higher up.
