How to Create a Table of Content in WordPress Posts and Pages
Addition of a table of content simplified our projects during schooldays. Much like those projects, WordPress can become extremely accessible and simplified by creating a table of content. This article is dedicated to teaching you how to create a table of content without much hassle.
Use of a Table of Content on WordPress
On several websites, the use of a table of content involves jumping from one portion of the content without having to view the entire content in the middle. Like these websites, you can also make your WordPress user-friendly when there are long blog posts to read. In addition, it makes your website SEO-d as the search engine can land your visitor right where the content he wants to read is present.
Creating a Table of Content
First and foremost, install the Easy Table of Contents plugin. Upon installation and activating the same, visit settings » and click on Table of Contents option. Now you can alter the settings of the table of contents. Here you enable the auto-insert option for the table of content for every blog you post. The enabling of auto-insert allows you to add a table on every article that has more than 4 headings.
After creation comes the editing, you can scroll down to alter the table’s appearance, choose a theme, adjust the size, choose a scheme of color etc. Now, save changes to store your progress.
Managing Table of Content
After enabling auto-insert, every content or blog post will be presented with an automatic table of content so you can alter this setting as per your preference. We personally do not recommend a table of content with every post on your website.
To be able to alter the presence of table of content head over to the post edit page. Here you will witness a section to manage the table of content for every article you post. Here you can define the specifics of your table of contents.
Make effective use of this brilliant tool as it can make your website much more comprehensive and attractive and it will also increase the readability of your posts.
How to Exclude a Category from Your WordPress Homepage
WordPress comes with a set of pre-existing categories that are displayed on your website’s homepage. Not every use makes use of all the categories and hence you should know how to exclude a category from the homepage of your WordPress’ websites.
Why Exclude a Category?
The category option on the homepage of WordPress lets you sort your content accordingly. Now, the number of unwanted categories already present can make this sorting process less efficient or you might not find a desired and relevant category pre-existing on the homepage. This is where you should know how to exclude a category or alter the section.
Read along to find out 2 methods of carrying this task out.
Method 1: Plugin Method
To carry out this method the first step is to install the Ultimate Category Excluder plugin from WordPress. Upon installation, head over to Settings » and then click on the “Category Excluder” option. This will create a popup which will then display all the available categories for your WordPress website.
From this point on the work gets easy. You can now simply exclude a category or multiple categories using the “exclude from page” option. Finish this by clicking on “update” to save your new settings. All you have to do now is visit your WordPress website to view your preferred categories being displayed on the front page.
Method 2: Exclude Using Code
For this method, you need to add code to your files on WordPress. Add the following codes to your theme’s functions files or simply to a plugin which is site-specific.
Change the ID (-5) by adding your preferred category ID. This will result in hiding of all blog posts of this ID.
In case you want exclusion of multiple IDs then instead of (-5) you should replace (-5, -4…) with the category IDs of your preference.
