Table of Contents  

For longer pieces of content (like tutorials or this article, for example) you also have the option to create a table of contents.  A table of contents provides readers with clickable links to each section they would like to read. First, click on the Table of Contents icon, then choose your setup options. You will need to format each section heading as a Heading for the table of contents to show at the top of your post.
