While it is generally considered good practice to break the contents of a lengthy topic into multiple pages, there are times when keeping it all together on a single page makes the most sense. For example, a list of FAQ's is best kept together and not broken up across multiple pages.. (As an example, see the FAQ list on this site.)
In those instances where you wind up keeping your content grouped together on a single page, you'll likely need a way to break it up into smaller chunks or sections that can be easily recognized and quickly accessed by your site's visitors. One way to achieve this is by making use of the Google Sites Table of Contents gadget, which can be found under the Insert menu when you are actively editing a page.
- Show Levels - The "Show Levels" option enables you to define how detailed your Table of Contents is. The default value is "All", and you can specify anything from 1 - 5 levels.
- Heading (H2)
- Sub-heading (H3)
- Minor Heading (H4)
Using this page as an example, I've added the following section headings and formatted as indicated:
- What is the Table of Contents Gadget? (Sub-heading (H3))
- How do I use the Table of Contents Gadget? (Sub-heading (H3))
- Adding the Gadget (Minor heading (H4)
- Populating the Gadget (Minor heading (H4))
