I just got a Table of Contents snipped from a 7,000+ word article. Is HP not allowing Tables of Contents any longer? How do I guide my audience toward specific information within the article without using a Table of Contents? Thank you!
That's quite a long article, so I can see your dilemma.
If you used links in your TOC, yes, they'll be snipped.
However, if you just list the sections and then name them in the capsule subtitles, you'll be OK.
Thank you, TIMETRAVELER2. They were linked within the article itself. I'll put it back in as you suggested.
When I do this, I often number the items in the list and then use those same numbers in order in the subtitles. Helps readers who just want to scroll down to certain sections.
This is horrible! Google is now using in-page links and they have a Jump to: SECTION in the search results. This helps readers and search engines. I'm going to be adding more table of contents to my hubs. If they get snipped, I'll write to the HP team with the examples of my own website where the CTR has increased drastically and the results too, thanks to a within the page table of contents. My articles tend to be long too around 5k words, usually.
Good looking out, Brandon. If they decide to change their policy, please let me know
I can't promise you that, because I usually have a hard time finding older threads It would be a while before I implement a new TOC in a particular hub of mine. I'll probably just post a new thread if it's worth news. Hopefully, you'll see it.

It would be really cool to add a table of contents to hubs and click through sections. So extremely long hubs would allow someone to click the link in the TOC and take them to that section.Actually, I have seen someone create a link to a section of a hub before, but it takes a bit of knowledge...

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.
