Tabbed Table of Contents for Blogger

Table of Contents
Table of Contents is what every blogger likes to add to his blog. It helps in decreasing the bounce rate of the blog and increasing the pageviews.

Today I am going to show you how you can add an amazing Table of Contents widget to a page of your blog. This widget is made by Taufik Nurrohman of DTE. The concept of this widget is very simple. It is coded with the help of JavaScript and CSS. It also has many options and setting which I will describe below.

A live working demo of this widget can be seen by clicking the below button.
