How to Create a Table Of Contents Page For Blogger?


Table-of-contents-for-bloggger You have seen that I have created an automatically updated table of contents page that shows the links to all posts published so far at this blog. This widget displays all your posts category wise and really saves time. This widget will also tell visitors that which posts are new and which are old. I have modified the CSS in order to make it suit your blog appearance.

The hosting server where I saved the JavaScript is down. So I have updated the Last code so please use the updated one.

Please first see a Demo Table Of Contents Page and play with the widget to see what is so exciting about it.

Follow the steps below to create a TOC page for your blog


  1. Go To Blogger > Design > Edit HTML
  2. Back up your template
  3. Search for ]]></b:skin>
  4. And just above it paste the CSS code below,
/*--------MBT TOC-----*/

.judul-label{

background-color:#E5ECF9;

font-weight:bold;

line-height:1.4em;
margin-bottom:5px;
overflow:hidden;
white-space:nowrap;
vertical-align: baseline;
margin: 0 2px;
outline: none;


cursor: pointer;

text-decoration: none;
font: 14px/100% Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
padding: .5em 2em .55em;
text-shadow: 0 1px 1px rgba(0,0,0,.3);
-webkit-border-radius: .5em;
-moz-border-radius: .5em;
border-radius: .5em;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
-moz-box-shadow: 1px 1px 4px #AAAAAA;
box-shadow: 0 1px 2px rgba(0,0,0,.2);
color: #e9e9e9;
border: 2px solid white !important;
background: #6e6e6e;
background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#888), to(#575757));
background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,  #888,  #575757);
filter:  progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#888888', endColorstr='#575757');
}
.data-list{
line-height:1.5em;
margin-left:5px;
margin-right:5px;
padding-left:15px;
padding-right:5px;
white-space:nowrap;
text-align:left;
font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;
font-size:12px;
}
.list-ganjil{
background-color:#F6F6F6;
}
.headactive{
    color: #fef4e9;
    border: 2px solid white !important;
    background: #1C8DFF;
    background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, from(#9dc2e7), to(#438cd2));
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,  #9dc2e7#438cd2);
    filter:  progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient(startColorstr='#9dc2e7', endColorstr='#438cd2');
}
     5.   Save your template and now create a New Page (not a new Post).

     6.    Give Your new Page a relevant title like “XYZ Table Of Contents” and then in the EDIT HTML mode of your blogger editor paste the code below,
UPDATED CODE:


<script src="http://abu-farhan.com/script/acctoc/daftarisiv2-pack.js"></script>


<script src="http://www.sohailjawaid.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/summary?max-results=1000&amp;alt=json-in-script&amp;callback=loadtoc"></script>


<script type="text/javascript">


var accToc=true;


</script>


<script src="http://abu-farhan.com/script/acctoc/accordion-pack.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

See a screenshot on how things will appear,
Table-of-contents
Now simply replace http://www.sohailjawaid.blogspot.com with your Blog URL and hit save. View your new page to see a beautiful Table Of Contents with a nice drop down effect.

Customize The TOC widget

By default I have kept the Category background in active colour mode to appear as blue and inactive as dark gray as shown below,
Customize-TOC

If you want to change the colour of the Active mode then simple change #9dc2e7 and #438cd2 . Here #9dc2e7   refers to a lighter shade and #438cd2 refers to a darker shade colour. So whatever colour you wish to use simply replace #438cd2 with your prefered colour and #9dc2e7  with the lighter shade of your prefered colour. 
That’s it! I hope you will find it really useful. If you find anything unclear then feel free to ask for my assistance. Peace out! :)
