Creating A Direct Link To A Word On Your Blog

September 16, 2007

I’m just putting this in here so that I’ll never forget it.  I searched the WordPress FAQ for a how-to on doing this, but I came up empty.  The answer finally came from zombie over at the LGF dictionary site…

So this:

<a name="ChenZhen" title="ChenZhen"></a><a href="#ChenZhen" title="Direct link to this word">ChenZhen</a>

Creates this:




  1. You didn’t find that in the WordPress FAQ, silly person, because that’s just standard HTML. Anchor tags have been around since the very beginning. You’d find that in even the simplest book about html going back 10 years ago.

    Next time you have a question about HTML or even JavaScript, just drop me an email. Don’t embarrass yourself in public!

  2. Well, I didn’t know they were called anchor tags, for one thing. Thanks for that. 🙂
