Problem scenario
You are using WordPress. You have a posting that is long, and you want a link to a paragraph at about halfway down in it. How do you create a hyperlink to a specific paragraph of a WordPress article?


  1. In your web UI editor for WordPress, click on the three vertically-stacked dots in the upper right-hand corner.
  2. Click on "Code Editor"
  3. Go to the place in the posting where you want the hyperlink to be. Insert this text (but change "contint" to the phrase of your choice):
<div id="contint"></div>
  1. Click update (in the upper right-hand corner).
  2. Create a URL like this (where is the URL of the posting):
  3. Open a web browser and test this hyperlink as it should bring you to the paragraph of your choice.
