I just put a TOC on two long hubs. It works very well except when you click the link, it is very slow. This is because it has to reload the entire hub and ads before it jumps to the linked area. I followed the instructions from Britflorida and Sidkemp and both were very helpful in guiding me through the process. Thank you very much, both of you.
I was just wondering if there is someway to speed it. Is there a way to get it to go directly to the linked location since the page is all ready loaded?
Unfortunately the only way on HP to make links that jump to sections of the same page is with that method, which causes a total page reload. If HP allowed more HTML, you could encode the links in a way that would not cause the page to reload. But it's unlikely they will loosen the restrictions on HTML, so we're probably stuck with that method.
Thanks. I figured as much. I know I did it years ago on one of my websites, but I would have to research how I did and they probably wouldn't allow it. I is unfortunate. My hub rating jumped significantly with the addition of the TOC, but as a person, looking at the hub, I was getting frustrated by so much delay and started to just scroll down instead, or just said "forget it." It is a great tool but very inefficient for the view even though it is supposed to make things easier for them.
I followed Brit's directions but could not get the TOC to work for me, and I checked it very carefully. Must have missed something because apparently it works for other people. Now that I've read these posts, I'm just as happy things went as they did lol!
The two that I have put them on are between 2500 and over 3000 words. They cover multiple topics within each one focusing on different aspects of painting. It makes it easier to get to the specific area of interest. This is mostly a test of its effectiveness. I'm still not completely satisfied wit it, especially since it is so slow. We'll see.
table of contents in webpages are simple links to different subtopics on the main page. I think table of contents is the wrong term to be used on the webpage.

When I click on the upper left hubpages logo it is just going to a blank screen. When I reload, it will eventually get the feed but it is taking a looooong time. I am on Max OSX Lion Safari 6.0.

I have read that site maps are great for web site to help with search engine crawlers. Can we list a site map on our hubs at HP through the link capsule since are hubs are not more than one page? Can we do this and place a link to the header within that page?Or would it just be better to take a...

I have seen this constantly the past week on Hubpages. I wouldn't think much of it, but I have noticed on my Verizon jet-pack that my data usage keeps "moving" when this happens!!! Is the hubpage downloading??? Most times I will close out of hubpages now when this happens. Here is...

I have added a table of contents to one of my hubs. The hub has a list of famous people from Oklahoma. To divide it up better and make it easier for people to read, I added links to each capsule. The question is, has anyone tried this and do you think that it would have a negative...

Hi Guys!I usually create long hubs and I was wondering if there was a table of contents widget (or whatever you call it)?
