Table of Contents

Fun Fact: The Table of Contents and Reading Progress areas auto populate, you don’t have to do a thing to make those show information. The Table of Contents uses your headings to track sections, and the reading progress bar just moves as your reader scrolls down the page. Pretty cool! You can also disable any of these features if you prefer they not appear in your sidebar or elsewhere on the site. Everything is easily customized, and toggled off/on with this theme.
