I am using CKEditor in my drupal 7 website. I am designed a new content type, in which I am writing about project activities in the following manner.

(1) Project A [anchor]
     This project describes about the design and analysis of Binary Search Tree
(2) Project B [anchor]
     This project describes about the design and analysis of Red Back Tree

Now, from a different page, I want to provide a link to anchors in following way-

The Binary Search Tree [as described here] also called an ordered or sorted binary tree.

I wanted to know using CKEditor-

  1. How to create links (anchors) inside a page?
  2. How to add these links to text on a new page?

    This question appears to be off-topic because it is about CKEditor, not Drupal. – Letharion Oct 15 '14 at 4:55
  • @Letharion: The question is already answered. See below before posting – Ravi Joshi Oct 15 '14 at 5:45
  • Yet, it is not a Drupal-related question since CKEditor can be used without Drupal. – kiamlaluno Oct 28 '14 at 10:36

How to create links (anchors) inside a page?

There is an icon with a flag. You click on it and you create the anchor.

Anchor icon

If the icon is missing, go to /admin/config/content/ckeditor , edit the respecive profile and customize the icons under section 'Editor appearance'.

How to add these links to text on a new page?

You add a link as you would:

  • Based on your answer I can add the anchors but I am still unable to link anchor to text. The website URL is I notieced that after linking this anchor in another page, the URL becomes (I don't want to declare the complete website URL) . Please see the screenshot here – Ravi Joshi Aug 29 '14 at 10:38
  • The picture shows that you have specified as link: /projects/#project_a, so this will drive you to if the site is deployed on If you want it to go to then you have to specify /drupal/another_page#my_anchor. See also this. This is an HTML-related comment btw, not CKEditor/Drupal. – Wtower Aug 29 '14 at 11:42
  • Thank you for the info. As I said earlier, I don't wanna enter absolute URL. Is it possible to work with relative URL? (Since my website is going to be deployed in live server. At that time I can't afford to change all these URLs) – Ravi Joshi Aug 29 '14 at 11:56
  • So I assume that your issue is that you have installed Drupal in a subdirectory in your development server. You can deal with this in many ways, but what I do and I recommend is to create a virtual host at your development server and move Drupal to the document root. – Wtower Aug 29 '14 at 12:06

    Also make sure the select list next to the URL is set to Other. – FatGuyLaughing Aug 29 '14 at 14:52
