Buttons to go to next anchor and back

    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. 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
