How to Create a Table of Content in WordPress Posts and Pages


Are you looking for a way to add table
of contents to your WordPress articles? Well keep watching, in this video I’ll
walk you through how you can create a table of contents in WordPress without
writing any code. To get started let’s head over to our WordPress dashboard.
From here you want to go to Plugins, Add New. In the search box we’re going to
look for easy table of contents plugin and once it pulls up this is the one
we’re looking for so let’s go ahead and click install now. Once it’s finished
installing make sure you also activate the plugin and once it’s activated you
can go to the settings area for it by going to Settings, Table of Contents. You
can choose to auto insert into posts and when you do that it’ll automatically
insert it if the article has more than four headings so we can do that and here
you can choose the position. We’ll leave it before the first heading from here
you can change the heading number and down here you can also change the header
label as well as whether or not you want to allow the user to toggle the
visibility. Down here under Appearance let’s keep it auto and that will
automatically grow or shrink depending on the size of the screen. Once you’ve
setup all of these settings let’s click Save Changes and we can go take a look
at a post to see it in action and now you see the table of contents
here that is pulling in the headings of this post. You can also choose to
overwrite these in any post that you want. For instance if we don’t want the
table of contents to be on this particular post we can scroll down and
we can either say disable the insertion here or we can change up the headings
that it’ll pull in here. Once you make those changes on this particular post
make sure you click update and that’s a real quick and easy way to get a table
content setup for your website. Did you learn something from today’s
