To create a link to jump to a section of page, you need to create a markdown block and place it in line or near the section of page you would like to jump to. In the block, type <div id="linkname"></div> where you replace the words linkname with some signifier (keep the quotation marks). Then wherever you would like the link (on the same page) you write out text, select it, then create an external link. type in #linkname (where linkname is the text you put in the quotation marks in the markdown block). Make sure this does not open in a new window (as it jumps to a spot on one of our pages.
To link from another page, create an external link (with whichever text you want to be the link) and type in the page i.e www.tlkt.org/staff/#linkname. Again, make sure open in new window is not selected.
