How About a Module that Links to the Different Sections of Your Hub

    For longer hubs, it would be good to have a module which we could place near the top of our hubs and list the different topics covered in the hub.

    These would be links that when clicked would carry the viewer to that specific section of the Hub. When the hub author selected the module and opened it to edit, a list of all the modules could be displayed, or at least all of the text modules, the amazon and ebay modules would probably be useful there as well. Like you could link to the "Buy Now" section or "See such and such for sale on Ebay". And maybe an option in the edit list for clicking through directly to the slideshow if applicable.

    Then the author would select all of the sections he wanted to link to. All the sections he chose would have to have given titles to display on the finished module, except for the slideshow. Maybe you could leave a space in the edit box next to slideshow so the hub author could give it a title, but not necessary.

    Anyway. Just a suggestion.

      Darkside covered this in his Table of Contents hub.

      I've actually done this in a few of my hubs - I learned how from Darkside's Table of Contents Hub.  It's a very cool "trick".  Here's a link to his hub:  http://hubpages.com/hub/tableofcontents

    You can do this already with a link capsule.  Lots of Hub authors use it in this fashion.

    Im aware of how to do this manually - but a capsule that automatically created the links to your various text modules would be AWESOME!

    I would absolutely love it if HP created this feature. I tried doing it manually one day (as per darkside's instructions) and gave up as it was far too time intensive. An easy way to link to other parts of the page would be great!

    Yep, many of us know how to do this manually but a built in function would be awesome - something that just gave the option for each of ones capsules?

    Darksides Hub is great and the method works - but after 3 years maybe its worth making into a built in option?

      Yeah I read Darkside's hub everyone keeps bringing up, too. I believe it was his second sentence -or maybe second paragraph- wherein he said that his method was rather tedious and an automatic feature would be much preferable.

      I appreciate the offering, and will keep it in mind. At the same time, as much time as it already takes me to put together a decent hub, I don't see myself using Darkside's alternative very often.

      Maybe I just shouldn't write such long hubs.
