Table of Contents HTML Method

I got the code for this method here.

Thank you Jhansi Tavva

From this help forum thread.

Be aware if you do decide to use the embed code feature to add your content it will not get indexed in site search.

Note that in Chrome if the setting to block popups is on the method may not work.

Here is the HTML code

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html><head> <style>ul, p {padding-bottom: 500px;}</style></head>


<h2><a name="top">TOC</a></h2>


<li><a href="#C1" target="_self">Sign in with the right account</a>

<li><a href="#C2" target="_self">Firewalls, ad blockers, etc.</a>

<li><a href="#C3" target="_self">Computer Locks Up</a>

<li><a href="#C4" target="_self">Can't Save Analytics Code</a>


<h2><a name="C1">Sign in with the right account</a></h2>

<h2><a name="C2">Firewalls, ad blockers, etc.</a></h2>

Sometimes firewalls or antivirus programs will block access to editing functions. This can especially occur in corporate or academic networks. Unrestricted access to is necessary.

Ad Blockers and Pop-up Blockers can prevent the use of parts of Google Sites.

Users are reporting that the Diigo Web Collector Extension prevents them from editing their sites.

Setting your zoom level to anything other than 100% can also be a problem.

If you have moved from a Google Sites personal account to an Apps account and have lost access please read Steegle's information:
