Anchor Atlas Widget

Atlas Anchor Widget

Last updated 03.29.24

The Anchor Atlas Widget allows you to add anchor tags to a page. Anchor tags are a way to take a website visitor to a specific part of a page on your website. Often, you have different sections on your pages that are important, but do not need their own standalone page. That’s where anchor tags come in. They allow you to drop an “anchor” right above a section, and then have dropdown menu item, pillar, button or link that takes a user directly to that section of the page. This makes longer pages easier to navigate on desktop and mobile.
