This is not specific to SharePoint, but general HTML, regardless of the product that generates it.

The anchor setup may differ from IE to Chrome or Firefox, especially with older versions of IE. In general, try to use both the ID and the Name tags in the anchor, to serve all browser types.

On the page with the link use:

<a href="/path/library/page.aspx#anchor">link text</a> 

On the page with the bookmark create this:

<a name="anchor" id="anchor">paragraph</a>
  • i did the same as advised <a href="/sites/SiteOffices/SitePages/test.aspx#anchor">link text</a> and for the page with bookmark ;<a name="anchor" id="anchor"> KEO INTERNATIONAL CONSULTANTS</a></h4> with no luck though, it goes to the top of the page.
