    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!

    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.
