Posts Table Pro Use Case - Website Table of Contents
Use Posts Table Pro to help people to navigate your website with a dynamic table of contents listing your pages, posts or other content.
A table of contents is a useful navigation device for websites with large amounts of content, for example pages or posts. It works alongside the navigation menu by adding a page listing the content on the website.
Using Posts Table Pro to create a table of contents is more user-friendly than a traditional sitemap because it is fully searchable and sortable. Instead of a static list, visitors can click on the column headings to sort by each field. They can also use the search box to filter the table of contents by the exact term they are looking for.
Common types of WordPress tables of contents
List of pages
List all the pages on your WordPress website to make it easy to find your content.
List all your blog posts in a sortable, searchable directory.
List custom posts
Display a list of custom posts - e.g. team members or locations.
Example table of contents
This table of contents displays all the pages on a website, sorted alphabetically by page title. It has been created using the Posts Table Pro plugin shortcode as follows:
[posts_table columns="title" post_type="page"]
Each page title is linked so that users can click through to view the page.
To customise your WordPress directory even further, you can use the documentation to change various elements of the table. This lets you control the default sort order, the number of rows per page or to display custom fields or taxonomies.
