Now With Added Table of Contents & Sidebars

Now With Added Table of Contents Sidebars

I was updating my website and discovered that some of the pages and posts are huge. It made them hard to find what you wanted to read.

So I went looking for a solution, and discovered something amazing.

Elementor , the plugin I use to design almost everything on this site, have recently added a collapsible Table of Contents option.

So, what better way to navigate around those longer pages and posts? I know use them in books, and online reading all the time.

So, I Mixed Things Up A Little...

I went through my entire website, and figured out which pages would benefit most from having a table of contents.

Surprisingly, that was most of the site, so I set about rebuilding the majority of the page templates to include a sidebar.

Initially, the intention was to put only the table of contents in the sidebar, but then I remembered the blog sidebar. It already included some features that I’d previously considered having available site-wide.

So, now you’ll find the following items in the sidebar on most pages:

  • a table of contents for the page/post (which you can collapse or expand as desired)
  • a list of places you can share the post/page, if you’d like others to see it
  • a sign-up to receive an email every time the blog updates
  • and a list of the benefits received by members of my mailing list

What Do You Think Of The New Features?

As part of setting up the new features, I experimented a lot with the Table of Contents. My personal experience is that it made reading things like the “Author Spotlight” posts a lot easier.

But, at the end of the day, even though I manage everything on this site, it’s your opinions that matter.

I would really love to see what you think in the comments section. Especially if you find anything that seems a little weird, or want to provide ideas of how I can make finding things easier for you!
