Create a Table of Contents or Archives Page in Blogger

CAUTION: LATEST UPDATE ON DEC 12, 2013
Please ignore my tutorial below since it is no longer
applicable as Abu Farhan's script is now not workable.
Moreover, Google has issued a malware warning
on Abu Farhan's site as follows:
'This site may harm your computer'.


Hooray! I've finally created an Archives Page and am so exhilarated with the result, especially a long-awaited one for my Blogger blogs! Some may name it Table of Contents, Index or Sitemap Page instead. Have a peek and you too may fall for one, yes? Confident that some bloggers would, I simply couldn't resist sharing this goody here. :-)

Went on a treasure hunt a couple of days ago for a Table of Contents or Sitemap widget for Blogger and after exploring for hours through various potential sites and experimented them unsuccessfully, I finally came across some awesome widgets (scripts) created by Abu Farhan that worked like a charm and were instant successes!

Just inserting his script for the Table of Contents for archived posts (do not click link as per caution note above) with only 2 lines of code in a Blogger Page, was able to automatically generate a list of the entire collection of all my posts, with titles neatly linked and sorted or archived by dates. A picture below to illustrate the impressive result!

Isn't that marvelous and it's so simple and quick to install to any Blogger blog! Thank you so much, Abu Farhan, I'm most grateful!

An Archives Page like this with the complete contents presented together in a single page will definitely make our blog posts easily accessible and navigable, providing more options not only to readers and search engines alike, but also as a reference to blog owners ourselves, to recall whatever were published and enable easy addition of internal links to new posts, when needed.

Here's how to create a Table of Contents in an Archives Page, sorted by dates :
  1. Create a Page first - go to Dashboard | Edit Posts, which will then open the Posting tab in Blogger. Select Edit Pages, click on the New Page button and type in the Page title, e.g Archives, Table of Contents or Sitemap, or whatever that you fancy. Ideally, the title should be short as that will also serve as the page tab's name in your blog.

  2. Next, select the Edit HTML mode to prepare your post. Copy and paste the following code into the post box :

    <script style="text/javascript" src="http://abu-farhan.com/script/daftarisibloggerarchive/tocbyarchivemin.js">
    </script>
    <script src="http://jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default?max-results=500&alt=json-in-script&callback=loadtoc">
    </script>


    Then, change the code in red (jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com) to the URL of your Blogger blog.

  3. You can add extra content, such as an introductory/explanatory paragraph above or below the script code, if you wish. Do this while in the Edit HTML mode. Then click Publish Page and you're done. Once your Archives Page is published, its tab will appear under your blog's header.
    (Tip: the Page tabs are linked to the Pages widget (gadget) at Layouts | Page Elements where you can configure the page list).
Hope the above tutorial on creating an Archives Page on a Blogger blog had helped you to create a similar page for yourself and put smiles on your face! Enjoy! :-)

For those with Wordpress-powered website, you can learn to install the WP-Archives plugin to create an Archives Page...refer to my tutorial at jaycjayc.com, if you're interested.

  1. i'm not able to view the code for table of contents

    ReplyDelete
  2. What do you mean, d? The code is clearly visible at step 2 of the tutorial!
    Or do you mean that the code is not visible at the post editor after you've copied and pasted? Please remember that you have to select the Edit HTML mode to paste the code in, and not while in the Compost mode. Even after pasting, you can view the code only in Edit HTML mode but will not be visible in the Compost mode.
    Hope this explanation helps.

  3. tis is d only...yesterday i couldnt view the code in step 2.... i dont know y...but now it is visible...

    thank u very much...i have converted labels into drop down menu by ur help...thank u very much...

    ReplyDelete
  4. d code doesnt work in my blog..wt could i do?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Did the Archive Page and its tab appear in your blog after you've published it? If yes, but showed an empty page except for the page title, then I can simply assume that you erred either in copying/pasting the code or changing the URL to your blog's URL. When changing to your blog's URL, see that you do not repeat again: http:// which has already been included before it, in the script code.
    Try to do it once again, hopefully it works otherwise I'm unable to help further as I've tried it at 2 other blogs of mine and it worked fine.

  6. Hi

    I've successfully 'installed' the Archives page in my blog header. Thanks so much for sharing!

  7. My pleasure, dear friend! Great to know that you didn't face any problem...at least it confirmed that my bag of tricks does work like a charm, right? Hehe!!

  8. Hey, i'm used the older way of putting the contact me, toc to my header etc(ie by posting it and then copy the link and put it to the title I've put in the header), the only way before blogger introduce the static page element

    However, I dont see how this trick is not working although I just to copy and paste the html to my post.

    any ideas

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hi Affan,
    Probably, it did not work because you copied and pasted the code, in the Compost mode. You have to choose the Edit HTML mode of the post editor to do it right.
    I just tried out at my test blog as a post, not a static page and it worked fine.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hey!

    Thanks for sharing. Your a genious!
    It worked so fine. But how do i move the blog-archieve from the sidebar then?

    ReplyDelete
  11. You're most welcome, Kong Carlo!
    I'm assuming that you'd like to remove the blog archive from the sidebar, right? If so, just go to Layout > Page Elements, then choose to edit the Blog Archive gadget and click on the Remove tab when the Configure box pops up. That's it!

  16. You're welcome, Mahesh! The link to Abu Farhan site comes intact with the code. Anyway, to me, it's almost inconspicuous and that's the least we can do to show our appreciation for the awesome widget which the author has generously spend much time in creating and sharing. Moreover, the link will benefit many others who are attracted to the archives display and may want it installed at their blog. Thus, clicking on it will lead them to its source.

  31. I got this to all work and have deleted the widget from main page. But I can't click on the archived dates now that they are listed on a separate page. I can only select the month. And no post titles are listed?

    Thankyou

  34. @ The Oddity
    Hi,
    Your Archives Page looks okay with post titles included, so your problem is already solved, right?
    Of course, the display at your Archives Page and the Blog Archive widget that you've deleted are different, each has its own format and merit. If you're more familiar with operating the normal Blog Archive widget, why not add back the gadget to your sidebar again.
    Even though I have an Archives Page, I've also installed the Archive widget at my sidebar because I find that it can provide an overview of my blog's existence with the display of monthly archived dates. Also, for the usability of some readers who are accustomed to the default archive widget.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've been trying to figure this out for days and found your post today and it only took a minute to get it working! Thank you!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You're most welcome, kenziekylanmom! Great to know you're delighted with the outcome!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Realized that you won't see the posts/archive if you set your blog's permission to private.

    it works for me when i set it to public.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Jacquie, It worked like charm, thanks to you and, of course, Abu Farhan. I always felt handicapped without a widget like this. Not anymore. Thanks again.

    P S:It was only through your blog that I learnt about Blogger's sticky Page - TY

    ReplyDelete
  39. My pleasure, KJ Shenoy! Delighted that you're pleased!
    Sticky page? That's a new term for me. Haha...I had to google to find out what that meant. Thanks for the prompt though!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi,

    I implemented this hack but it is displaying the post sorted by label. So if a post has more than one label it is in several places. I just want it to display the post in date order. Maybe having labels displayed on side but not necessary.

    Here is my blog Petwithallergies.blogspot.com

    You can access the toc from the toc button at the top of the blog.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Stacey

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think you're a little confused, Stacey! If you had implemented the hack following this tutorial, the display of all your posts will be sorted by dates as you'd desire. Just follow this tutorial for Archives Page and your problem will be solved.
    It appears that you've instead applied my other tutorial for sitemap which generates the list of posts by labels.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Yes, you are correct I saw both of your posts and pasted the sitemap code instead of the table of contents code. corrected and working perfectly. Thanks for a great blogger resource.

    Have another question off topic. There used to be a script to edit comments but it stopped working once the new blogger came out. Any new scripts to be able to edit comments?

    Thanks again,

    I do have a question is there any way to do something similar but just show todays post only?

  56. Thanks, Elaine! This hack has been authored by Abu Farhan...you may want to pose your question to him at http://www.abu-farhan.com/2009/09/table-of-contents-categorized-by-dates-by-archived/

    Anyway, he has another script for a sitemap page that will display all posts sorted by labels (tags) and I've done a tutorial about it @ http://jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com/2010/05/create-table-of-contents-or-sitemap-for.html Check it out just in case this suits you.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Thanks - In this method, I can see that blog archive had been built using JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) & blog feed. Accessing of blog feed is done by using a technology called JSON through a callback.

    If you would like to remove "Abu Farhan", you'll have to host it in your own site/blog.

    Disadvantage: If you have a very huge list of posts, this technique is not effective! All your years of posts (1000's) would load in a single page which may slow down or even freeze the page. There should be some functions/features/controls in this JSON query by Abu Farhan. Wish you all the best - Thank you

I want to index all my Topics and I have staic pages, and found that I can not have mulitple posts on a page, So I have been trying to figure out how to post in Something Like a Table of Content or Index or something to Categorize the posts I need to for Easy Finding for the Things I need to do... I think your Table of Content Is what I need, but I need to know now how do I post into the Different Categories Using your Table Of Content .. And... How many Categories Can your Table Of Content Hold? Again Thanks and forgive my stupidity, I am new on all of this and it is abstract for me

  113. Hi P.Development!

    Revisited my previous response to you dtd. Nov 15, 2011 5.25 PM and detected an error in link provided but unable to edit it. Hence, deleted it and republish the following with corrected tutorial link:

    I think what you need is not an Archives Page but a Sitemap Page with all your posts, sorted by labels or similarly known as categories.
    Check out my relevant tutorial at http://jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com/2010/05/create-table-of-contents-or-sitemap-for.html. However, you would first need to label all your posts for the Sitemap Page to work.
    Hope this helps.

    1. You're most welcome, Ileana! If you create it as an Archives Page (which is a static page not a post), then you can position the Page gadget to be below your blog's header or at the sidebar. Check out my other tutorial on Create Pages @ http://jacqsbloggertips.blogspot.com/2010/07/create-pages-in-blogger-blogs-with-ease.html for further info.
