Canvas Editor is removing my Anchor Tags when I edit the page

Hello,

 

I'm creating a home page for one of our courses, with 'quick navigation' buttons so our students have easy access to different parts of the course. 

 

When I add an anchor tag to the entire div for the button, it works fine (see code example below)

 

<a href="https://aitt.instructure.com/courses/56/modules"><div>
<h3>Modules</h3>
<span>View all modules for this course.</span></div></a>

 

However, when I go to edit the page again, say to add another anchor tag to another div, or edit the content in another section on the page - it removes the anchor tag completely. (see code example below).

 

<div>
<h3>Modules</h3>
<span>View all modules for this course.</span></div>

 

Any idea what's causing this? If I use the Rich Content Editor I can use the 'Link to URL' to have the text (the h3 and span) to link to the page, but not my entire div (the button) which I would greatly prefer. 

 

Cheers,

 

Liam
