Hello, Timshaw9.

This time, I introduce the method of "contents Introduction" which is one of the SEO measures *.

* SEO: Devise to have more people see your articles.

I will go into the description immediately.

By the way, you can add a table of contents like this.

How to add a table of contents

(1) Installing the plug-in

The easiest way to add a table of contents is to add a plug-in.

* Plug-ins: Use to add new features to WordPress.

I use the "Easy Table of Contents" plug-ins.

It is simple, but it is recommended because I can also custom neatly.

Let's look at the actual screen and see how to install it.

❶ menu bar > > Plugins > > add new
❷ Search window, type "Easy Table of Contents" and search
❸ Press "Install Now"

The installation is now complete.

(2) Enable plug-ins

When the installation is done, "activate" the plug-in.

❶ menu bar > > Plugins > > installed plugins
❷ Press Activate

(3) Change of plug-in Settings

After activation, change the settings.

❶ Press Settings
❷ automatically add a table of contents
❸ how many headings to display the table of contents
Deciding which size headings to include in the ❹ TOC
❺ Save changes (easy to forget)

This "H1-h6" represents the size of the headline.

I basically

H3 ▶ ︎ Book Headlines
H4 ▶ ︎ A detailed headline in this headline
H5 ▶ ︎ Important points/Summary highlights

I have to use it properly.For your information.

Actually make an article

Once you've installed and set up the plug-ins, let's actually write the article and check it out.

Although I do not mind the way of writing about the usual, I introduce "writing which can use the table of contents more" because it is trouble.

It is "creating a hierarchy of headings".

The method is simple and it only changes the size of each heading.

Hierarchy can be like this

However, please note that the hierarchy is too deep and the reverse is painful to see.

Let's make it to three levels at the highest level.

If you don't see the table of contents

If you do not see the table of contents at this point, please check the following items once.

  • Is the plug-in enabled?
  • What is the minimum number of displayed headings?
  • Do you check the heading size you want to display?
Did you disable automatic insertion in advanced settings?

In addition, please note that the table of contents is not displayed in the edit screen of the article.

The actual contents are displayed when you move to the preview screen.

At last

Now, do you guys see the table of contents safely?

Take advantage of the table of contents and aim for more readable articles!

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
