HTML links are used to connect different pages or sections within a website. They allow the user to navigate from one page to another by clicking on a hyperlink. The most basic syntax of an HTML link is as follows:
<a href="URL">Link text</a>
URL is the address of the page or section you want to link to and
Link text is the text that will be displayed on the page as a clickable hyperlink.
For example, to link to Google’s homepage, the code would look like this:
<a href="https://www.google.com">Go to Google</a>
It’s also possible to link to other types of files, such as PDFs or images, by specifying the URL of the file in the
href attribute. For example:
<a href="my-document.pdf">Download PDF</a>
Links can also be used to jump to specific sections within the same page. To do this, you need to give the section a unique
id and then use that
id in the
href attribute of the link. For example:
<h2 id="section1">Section 1</h2> ... <a href="#section1">Go to Section 1</a>
That’s a basic introduction to HTML links. I hope this helps you get started with using links in your own web pages!
