Is there a way to add hyperlinks within a story post

Post by Rocket » Sat Aug 20, 2022 4:39 pm

Hey all,

Wondering if there is a way to post hyperlinks within a story post. The current story I'm working on is long enough that I've begun listing a table of contents at the start of the initial post (updating as I go along). So what I'm interested in trying, is turning that table of contents into links that would jump someone to the right chapter in the story (example: If someone's already read chapters 1-15, they could click on the chapter 16 link and jump straight to that, instead of scrolling down until they find it)

Not sure if that's feasible or not, just curious if possible - and if someone's willing to post "how to do it" that would be even better.

Thanks all! :D

The possibilities I see for this is that you need to make a separate post for each chapter.
You can find the link to the posts in your profile. "Search users's posts"
The links to each post is at: "Jump to post >"

Theoretically the header of each and every post is a link that you could use for that.
It should at least jump close enough that the target post is on screen. depending on screen size it might still acquire a bit of work of finding the exact right post.

Thank you!

If anyone's open to trying the links, I tried inserting links for Chapters 2, 3 and 4. They're a little clunky, but I have a hard time telling if they work for everyone or just for me. So any feedback is appreciated!

The links are in "Melanie's Story" (under stories obviously) :D

This is a link to the start of the story (hopefully this works also!)
