Jump Links/Skip Links In WordPress - HELP

I want to use in-page links on some wordpress pages, exactly like the contents links on wikipedia pages (click here to see).

I don't know the exact name for this type of link and I don't know to add them in wordpress.

Would really appreciate either the html for this or a plugin for wordpress.

    The links you see are called "links." They are standard html links. Any good html reference will give you all you need to know to create them.

    The appearance is controlled via CSS. Again, any good CSS reference will give you all you need to know to make the links appear just about any way you want.

    You definitely don't need yet another plugin for this. Once you figure out the CSS style, a quick tweak to your .css style sheet will do the trick. Then just create links using the built in editor.

    Is it the styling or adding links to other pages on your blog (internal linking) :S

    If styling checkout CSS;

    If you are wanting wordpress to place links to internal pages and post on your blog check out SEO Smart Links plugin

    Hope this helps

    Do you mean that the links get created automatically?

    Like, when you have a post about dogs and you just wrote a new post about cats and mentioned the word "dog" in it, that that word "dog" links to the dog-post automatically?

    Then "SEO Smart links" is possibly the plugin you're looking for!

    Hope it helps

      They are called "named anchor links" and here's a reference:

        Bingo. Exactly what I was looking for.

        Embarassing other answers by the way, read the OP properly.

          Ehm.. How do you dare saying that to people trying to help you?

          All the answers were possible answers to your question - it wasn't clear what you wanted... If you said what such a link does - we would have known what to do?

          Like: The links that make you go to a part further down the page when you click on them.

          Not that hard?

            He asked a fair question and it was a fair point to make - if anyone read and understood the question - the answer was obvious.

            Sure it's not great to criticise people who tried to help you, but he's also correct that people often post answers to questions they don't understand rather than just asking for clarification.

            If you don't like people being criticised - why continue that by criticising him?

            2 wrongs don't make a right.

            nothing to see here.

          It's like one of those "Where's Waldo" puzzles. Now that we know what you wanted, it's perfectly clear in the OP.

          See, you had the advantage of knowing exactly what you were asking for.

          I think that next time you have a question, I'll probably spare myself the chance to embarrass myself by trying to help you...:rolleyes:

    Found a good enough plugin called Table of Contents Plus. It creates a contents table automatically based on the header tags.
