Images linking to Anchor Tags within email?

My client wants images (used like a menu) that link to jump points within the email. Ive used <a href="#A">text</a> successfully with the text links, but cannot apply this to an image link as it automatically adds - http:// - to the link. Is there another way around this? Or can I specifify a hardcoded path? Please help!

I think the answer for you is to insert an anchor tag to the section you want to link to. The format is as follows:

Image with link - a href="#A" (#A is the location name of the anchor link)

Section to link to (Anchor Tag)  -<a name="A"> (this is the syntax for the name of the anchor location)

This is HTML stuff that would to be coded into the newsletter index page.

Thanks for your suggestion torweb. But yes, I know that! What im meaning... is that Campaign Monitor automatically puts - http:// - at the front of all image links, so the code would be - http://<a name="A"> - which doesnt work. Is there a way of removing the - http:// - or specifing a full path?

I had the same question as Karen -- but looks like this was never fully answered as of 9 mos. ago.

Is there a way to allow a client to add anchor links when they're editing a campaign using a pre-set template?
I find that "http://" automatically gets added to all links that a client adds, which obviously is a problem if what you want is an anchor link with href="#foo"
