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.

Once you've researched, drafted, edited, proofed... and before you've published your hub, you should think about a few things you could do to do it justice and add some extra appeal to it.1) Photo or Illustration? I like at LEAST one image. That way when it comes up in the hub search results it has...

I have finally published a hub that has been deemed unfeatured. I can only direct my attention to a table I inserted which was long when viewed on the mobile platform. Grammar is checked, titles tweaked, content is solid as its in the same vein as my other articles. Do you think this could be it?...
