How to add an anchor to a section and integrate it into the menu with Nimble Page Builder ?

The Nimble Builder plugin allows you to set a custom anchor to a section or a column. You can then connect this anchor to a menu item to allow an internal page navigation.

This is typically useful for a landing page like in the example below, created with the Nimble Builder, and the Customizr theme.

What is internal anchor link in HTML ? An internal anchor link looks like <a href="#my-internal-anchor">My internal anchor</a> , in which #my-internal-anchor is a URL fragment, which specifies an internal target location (an id of an HTML element) within the current document.

  1. Open the live customizer and click on the settings menu of the section for which you want to add an anchor.
  2. Then open the anchor settings accordion and give a name to the anchor. In the example below, the name is "custom-anchor".
  3. Publish

  2. Click on Custom Links. In the url field, write your anchor name preceded by a hash mark ( # ), like in the picture below WordPress Menu item with an anchor link

Note : if you need an anchor link that work in all pages, you'll need to enter the full url of the page where the section is displayed with the anchor at the end. Like in the picture hereafter.
