    I cannot seem to get anchor tags to work. I want users to be able to jump to the bottom of a long form. I used a text box and in the source code created the:

    <a name="bottom"><a>

    and I can see the little anchor icon when I'm saving. Then, I add at the topa link to the anchor:

    <p><a target="_blank" href="https://" ></a></p>

    But it doesn't seem to work. It simply returns me to the same page, but doesn't jump to the bottom. :(

    Thanks for the help.

    You are using an incorrect attribute for the a tag. You should use the attribute "href" to point to the destination of the link. I tried to inspect your form. Try to remove the name="bottom" attribute and use this one: target="_blank" href="#cid_71"

    cid_71 is the ID where your bottom button (Save & Next) is located in your page. The reason you are being returned to the same page is because you are using an absolute link ( for your  tag plus a wrong ID. If you want to use it this way, change the bottom in your link into the proper ID of the bottom button element. In this case it will become Also try to remove the target attribute if you don't want to open the link in a new tab in the browser.
