Hello. I am working in a Petroleum company and I am not a professional website designer. I made a webmap in arcgis online for the company's website and paste the html code at the backstage of the website. It performs fine.

Now they have a requirement which is, they want to click a hyperlink on the website and the webmap on the same page will automatically zoom to a specific position. It should be an easy job, but I don't know how to write the html code. Can anybody help me? Thanks.

If you using ArcGIS.com have you considered bookmarks? You described what they do.

If you were into JavaScript, you could replace the hyperlink with a button, and when it's clicked run a function, The function would change the map extents. aka bookmark.

HI Vladimir,

Take a look at the section 'Define extent' in the below link:

Use URL parameters—ArcGIS Online Help | ArcGIS

You can define the extent of the map directly in the URL.
