Anchor a Link to: an Assembler Particle (Listicle Item) or a Footnote

You can now hyperlink to a specific particle within your article. Check out an example here.

Anchoring A Link Inside The Body Of The Post To A Particle

Here's How It Works

Each item/particle created in the Entry Editor is automatically allocated an id called rebelltitem$:


In the 7x7 example above, they wanted to link a snippet of text to particle #5 on their list:

Here's How to Implement It

  1. Select the text snippet you want to link.
  2. Enclose the text inside of an <a href> tag. It needs to look like this: <a href="rebelltitem$">TEXT YOU WANT TO LINK</a>

To find the correct ID, you can either physically count to the item, or you can search for it in the HTML of your post.


Anchoring A Link to a Footnote

This is as simple to do as anchoring an assembler particle!Let's say you have a (1) in an article, and you want that word or combination of words to be linked to a specific footnote.

Step 1: Link the word with an #id

Go into the HTML mode of the post and find the (1) (or word) you want to link. Add this right next to it: <a href="#footnote1">[1]</a>
The (1), of course, should be whatever word you've chosen to link to the footnote.
And the #id can be anything you choose -- it just has to be unique. In this case if I had more footnotes I'd do: #footnote2, #footnote3, #footnote4, etc.

Step 2: Match the footnote with said #id

Go to your footnotes, find the <p> tag of the footnote you want to link and add the id to it, like this: <p id="footnote1">

If you use pagination in your articles

You'll need to add ?page=3 (for example, or whatever page number you have the footnotes in), like this here:

So it links out to the 3rd page of your article, where the footnotes are, in the HTML mode, and it looks like this: "<a href="?page=3#footnote1">[1]</a>

Linking To A Specific Particle In The Post URL

That is a much simple ordeal and it's based on the same rebelltitem logic.

You need to append ?rebelltitem=$#rebelltitem$ to the
