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.

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

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...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

I feel naive for asking this, but how do you create links on a hub that take the reader to a specific part of the article? I know how to make links that send the reader to another page, but not the links that make the reader scroll down. I've seen other hubbers create those links. It seems like it...

I have 2 lenses/hubs that were made to highlight facts, myths and superstitions of 2 different birds. There is a lot of info, and the one that I just looked at has a red skull saying it is too promotional. The links go to a few of the myths, and there are several links at the end of the...

As I turn my lenses into hubs, I keep regretting the loss of the video module that allowed the videos to be stacked. So many of my pages now seem like nothing more than video after video because I usually added several to the stackable video module when dealing with subjects that needed a lot of...
