How to Create a Sitemap [Table Of Contents Page] For Blogger

Sitemap is a page on your blog where all posts are arranged in accordance to their type, and it shows the links to all posts published on your blog so far. Creating sitemap (which can also be referred as Table of Content) is one of the important things you need to add or have on your blog/website, to make it look standard, professional, and it helps your blog visitors and readers to navigate through your blog post.

In this post, you will get a script/html code that saves time and helps to update all new posts made on your blog to your sitemap (Table of Contents) page automatically. This script/html code when followed well, will display all posts made on your blog under their specified Labels (categories). This widget also comes with a CSS & Jquery to make it attractive, though you may wish to change it to your test if you are good on html coding.

Below are the Steps to Add Automatic Sitemap (Table of Contents) to your blog:
Step 1. (i) Add the CSS/html code below to your template.
You can do this by going to Blogger >>> Navigate to Template, use (CTRL+F) to search/find  ]]></b:skin> in your template and paste the CSS/html code below before ]]></b:skin> tag.
