How To Create Table Of Content Or Sitemap Page In Blogger Blog

How to create table of content or sitemap in blogger

Table of content called as "sitemap" of your blog provides your blog readers a steering platform that is designed for them to go through their much required topic much easily. Blogger does not provide such kind of widget but it can be externally added. While the blog archive and labels have all the information about the published post, these do not appear on a single page completely hence searching for more posts is not always easy.



Here is a gadget through which you can add a "table of content (sitemap)" on blogger blog showing the index of all posts separated by categories that have been published. This widget will also mark as ‘New!’ or the latest post published on your blog.

To add this great widget to your blogger blog, follow the below instructions,
