    I am trying to create a “go back” button that takes me to a specific section on the previous page.

    I have tried assigning this section an ID and then setting the link for the button manually, but I’m wondering if I am doing it wrong.

    Is there a standard way to do this?


    The only way I know of to do this involves creating a static link to a specific page URL, followed by the ID.

    For example, if I want to link to the #section-2 of the /about-page, I would create a link like this:
    <a href="/about-page/#section-2">Anchor Text</a>*

    *(This assumes you’ve added the ID of section-2 to an element on the /about-page).

    Of course – this works – but only if you are linking to a specific page.
    It’s not dynamic like a BACK button is.

    Thanks for sharing @chrisbryant, did you try that out and did you have any luck with it @taylorwedo?
