Table of Contents

A table of contents for a web page is similar to a table of contents in other types of publications: It is a list of the contents within the folder it represents. And in this case, each item on the list is a link to that content item.

In Ektron, the table of contents is created for you when you change your page template to table of contents (toc.aspx). Each HTML content item in that folder will be added to the table of contents automatically, with links to the content items.

Note: The table of contents will display your list of content in alphabetical order. If this order does not suit your needs, you may want to use a collection

To create a table of contents, follow this process:

  1. Go to the Workarea.
  2. On the left side of the Workarea, navigate to the content item you want to use as a table of contents and open it for editing. If you're creating a new content item to make a table of contents, mouse over the New tab on the right side of the Workarea and go to HTML content.
  3. Go to the Templates tab. In the Template Selection field, choose toc.aspx, which stands for table of contents.
  4. You will then need to submit the page for publishing, as with any other content item.


  • Because the table of contents links to all the content in that folder, in most cases it should be the first item in that folder’s menu. See How to Work with Menus for more information.
  • You will not be able to view the table of contents in the Workarea. To see the page as it will appear on the website, you will need to view it in the browser, in preview mode if it is not published. See How to Use Preview Mode for more information.
