Hey, I am wondering what the best way to get a list of links in the sidebar and have them link to different content within the same page. For example, I have a 'Equipment' Page and in the sidebar I would like a list such as... Item 1, Item 2, Item 3. Each of the items will open a new page within the Equipment page. Thanks!

In Appearance > Widgets you would add a text widget with links:

Then on the page you would use:

`


content content content
`
If you want to show the sidebar widget on that one particular page only you can use:

So I have all the content for each item on the same page? Do you have a link to a quick example? Very much appreciate it! Thanks. John

I would just create a custom menu widget for the functionality:

Hey John, I just explained and provided the example for what you asked specifically. If you're unsure about something I said please help me to understand what you do not understand.

Adam has a good idea as well, basically you would take the same concept I introduced and apply that to: Appearance > Menus - if you're not using this already you would have recreate your whole menu here.

So one of your tabs would be "Equipment" then in the menu you would add custom tabs/links and drag them under "Equipment" nesting them offset to the right so they are child/dropdown pages.

For the text you would use Item 1 and for the URL you could use:

I know this may be frustrating and have a learning curve to it, but we'll get there.

Thanks, Bryan
