Add Our Shortcode
Make It Clickable With “A” Tags
To make it clickable to a link or anchor. We need to place the shortcode inside an HTML code for links. You can make this click to another page, popup, or anything else you need.
<a href = "#"> Lottie Shortcode </a>
Paste the shortcode of our animation into the box. It should be added to a dark or black section since it has white arrows. It will not show up until you view the live page, do not panic. Publish your changes.
Use Anchor Widget To Target
You can have your down arrows link to the bottom of the page by selecting an anchor widget. Place this on a page and set the ID to “down” no #.
