In-Line Links Not Working


In some browsers (gmail and iphone), my internal links don't work. For example, when a user clicks on "back to top", nothing happens...

I have a title with an id, such as <h1 id="title>Title</h1>

For the link I say, <a href ="#title">Back to Top</a>

Is there something I can do to get this to work for all broswers?

Hi Emmett, I'd suggest using the old school <a name> tags rather than anchoring to an id, that seems to work more reliably.

Not all email browsers support anchor tags. See:

I've looked at this myself a few times (my clients seem to love extremely long email campaigns). I haven't found any kind of anchor solution that'll work across the general swath of email clients I need it too. I generally put in a short table of contents at the top if I think it will help people parse the information in the email faster.

See why 200,000 companies worldwide love Campaign Monitor.

From Australia to Zimbabwe, and everywhere in between, companies count on Campaign Monitor for email campaigns that boost the bottom line.
