Setup Table of Contents

Steps to add a table of contents

1. To add a “Table of Contents”, ensure that each article section has a heading tag (H title tag). It helps organise your article to make it readable and easy to navigate.

In the WordPress block editor, find a section where you want to add the “Table of contents”. We recommend adding it after the introductory section of the article.

The table of contents follows the hierachy of the H tags, and indents headers based on their level. When you edit or amend the headers, the table is also updated automatically.
