    Hello,

    Having exhausted the web for an answer to this, I have arrived here for some help.
    I have created this very long 1 page site for a client and i'm now struggling to add in a back and next button which jumps to each anchor that I have positioned. http://motomantour.businesscatalyst.com/

    You can see i have added the back button to the first position but that is as far as i have got.

    I initially tried to have new buttons for each section which hyperlink to the next or previous section but then ran into problems with the way my site parallaxes.

    I also experimented with the presentation panels widget but I ran into problems with the primary navigation which I have designed to be on the right.

    I'm optimistically hoping for a snippet of code to embed which references my next button and back button graphic and decides which is the next or previous anchor - If that's even possible???

    Hey @Pascal

    I will be happy to put your searching to an end at last! You can link to anchors on the page by entering your link like this:
    #anchor_name. Obviously just replace 'anchor_name' with the name of your anchor. So if you had an anchor called 'about', then in the presentation panels widget option menu, you would enter #about into the link section.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Thanks. That would work. but unfortunately the 'presentation panels' widget is not an option for me as wasn't able to replicate my 5 navigation buttons on the LHS of all pages.

    Not quite solved as I was hoping for a solution without using the presentation panels widget.

    ...anyway Here's what i have come up with (scroll down to the blue page) ...as you can see the button have to be replaced per page - looks a bit odd but it works.

    I'd be very interested to hear if someone comes up with a better way of doing this.

    I gather there's an issue with #anchor url in the address bar changing therefore making my next/back feature impossible to implement

    Thanks
