There are times when you will wish to direct your visitors to specific locations on your site. This will not only save your audience time in finding the exact information needed, but it will also allow you to track and direct your visitors to content that matters most to you.

Before we proceed, we need to understand how the Zoomforth links are classified into different parts. We will break down the example site below, which targets a specific section within a specific subpage.

To make it simple, the Site URL is composed of entire domain + the exact name of the site + "#/" + word "subpage/" + slug-ID of the subpage + "/section/" + section-id

Example URL targeting a specific section from a subpage

HTTPS:// is the domain

denvertech#/ is the sub-directory which is the exact name of the site.

subpage/(slug-id) unique identifier of subpages

section/(section-id) unique identifier of sections within the subpage.

How To Identify The Exact Slug-ID Of A Subpage

Go to your site editor. Under Navigation, you'll see the list of pages and their corresponding slug-IDs. This consists of random numbers and letters unique for that subpage only. You may edit the slug-ID at any time, including the one for the homepage.

From our example below, subpage 3c7b6s corresponds to a subpage called "courses." The link below will go directly to the courses subpage.

How To Identify The Section-ID From A Specific Section

Like subpages, every section inside a subpage has a unique identifier called Section-ID. It also consists of random numbers and letters. To capture the specific Section-ID, you will need to perform an action called "Inspect Element" from your browser.

  1. Preview the site

  2. Go to your preferred subpage

  3. Navigate to the exact section you want your visitors directed to

  4. Perform a Right Click on any space within that section

  5. Choose "Inspect Element"

  6. Look for the highlighted part of the tool and check for "section-id-xxxxx"

  7. The last five characters will be the section-ID of that section.
