In the spirit of community sharing and caring I give to you a step by step tutorial on how to make a Table Of Contents for your hubs.
If you're familiar with HTML it's easy enough. Just a bit fiddly. The only way to make it easier is if HubPages HQ make a capsule to do it automagically.
I second the suggestion that there is a TOC capsule - espeically for flagship hubs which are 1500 words long - I might need to retrofit some TOC's!
I'm delighted to see even brand new hubbers implementing my hub hack!

Darkside, great explanation, thanks!
I have one little question: How did you get the phrase Table of Contents so close to your content links? Did you use a text capsule for that and then a link capsule for the actual links? Or is there a way to "write" Table of Contents" within a link capsule?
Ahhh...Haaa...I figured it out, at least for my purpose. I am making a table of contents, however, not linking the contents to areas within the hub - but to other hubs. I opened a new text capsule, typed in the words Table of Contents, <line space>, typed in the hub title, made the hub title a clickable link. This solved my space issues I experienced trying to have the phrase "Table of Contents" in a text capsule and the hub links in a link capsule. Sorry...this was slightly off topic.

I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...

One or two of my hubs have fallen victim to the "does not meet quality standards" empty bubble.In one case, I imagine it is because the hub falls under the "purely personal" category, better suited to a blog. That's fine. I can move it. (It's an older hub...

I have had this hub running for a while now and although traffic is ok I wonder if there is anything else I could do to improve it. My Adsense income from this hub is just 0.01 since it started. All comments welcome.

I hate to compare Hubpages to Squidoo (I make no money on Squidoo and quite a bit here), but I do know that Squidoo has a table of contents feature and Hubpages does not.I sincerely believe this would lower bounce rates and increase the amount of time spent on pages. All we need is a module...

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.

As Cagsil noticed, we are in the process of testing out some changes to our text capsule editor. It's been turned on for a small number of specially selected trial users for a couple of days already, and now it's available to all. In order to switch, just change the settings on your...
