Today, we will be discussing a crucial element in website development - the table of contents. Our guide will walk you through the process of adding a table of contents to Oxygen Builder, allowing you to enhance your website's user experience and improve navigation.
Why A Table Of Contents Matters
A table of contents serves as a roadmap for your website visitors, enabling them to navigate through your content with ease. It provides quick access to different sections, making it convenient for users to find what they are looking for. By incorporating a table of contents, you can improve the overall user experience, reduce bounce rates, and keep visitors engaged for longer periods. It adds a touch of professionalism and organization to your website.
Getting Started With Oxygen Builder
Before we dive into the steps of adding a table of contents, let's first get familiar with Oxygen Builder. Oxygen Builder is a powerful website building tool that allows you to create stunning, customizable websites without the need for extensive coding knowledge. Its intuitive drag-and-drop interface and robust features make it an excellent choice for both beginners and experienced web developers.

- Click on the "Easy Table of Contents" option in your WordPress menu.
- Choose the settings that best suit your website's design and layout.
- Select where you want the table of contents to appear - typically at the beginning of your content.
- Customize the appearance of the table of contents, such as font size, color, and style.
- Save your settings.
Step 3: Implementing The Table Of Contents In Oxygen Builder
Now that the plugin is installed and configured, it's time to add the table of contents to your Oxygen Builder-designed page. Follow these steps:
- Edit the page in Oxygen Builder where you want to add the table of contents.
