Using the "ID=" tag/attribute is a useful workaround for adding a table of contents to a hub. However after clicking on an entry in the TOC, jumping to the new section and then hitting the back button, the viewpoint returns to the start of the hub.
Is there any way of jumping back to the TOC (other than putting it at the top of a hub, which doesn't look great before an intro) ?
I used BritfFlorida's method of inserting a Table of Contents. It's simple enough, if a bit laborious, so I've used it in only two or three hubs so far.

The method does seem to go back to the right place when using the back button. I'm using Chrome, if that's an issue.
That's more or less what I am doing except that instead of adding the raw HTML code for the TOC to a text module, I'm highlighting text, turning it into a link and adding the "mod" bit to the end of the link.
I did some more testing and the method does send the view back to the right place on my notebook. The only issue seems to be with my Lumia 520 Windows smartphone.

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 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...

I tend to create long-form content. A table of contents or a search function at the top of a hub would greatly benefit my users who may already know a bit about the subject and are looking for something new.
