    Default Creating Automatic Table of Contents (of pages) to Embed in Website

    Hello

    I am an author and a beginner coder, and I am creating my website to set up all of my books that I have written. Each book chapter is a new page on the site, and on each page, I need to code in a Table of Contents. I've found other Table of Contents codes before, but the problem is, I need all of the Table of Contents to be synced across all pages. As in, every time I add a new chapter, I want to be able to add the new chapter to the Table of Contents, and have the Tables across all the pages be updated. Otherwise, I'd have to go through all the previous chapters/pages and add the new chapter to all of the Table of Contents; very tedious work. Can anyone help me out with this?

    Thanks,

    Jane

    How is this a java programming question or problem?
    Are you looking to write a program to generate html for your web pages?

    I am using a website program (Weebly) that allows for Java code to be embedded into the site. This program automatically creates web addresses for each new web page I make; the problem is coding a Table of Contents that will automatically sync to Tables across multiple web pages every time the Table is edited/updated. Here is an example of a Table of Contents code I tested out on my website, but does not automatically sync across multiple pages.

    <h1>Table of Contents</h1>

    <ol>

    <li><a name="top"></a><a href="#one">Contents Item One</a> </li>

    <li><a href="#two">Contents Item Two</a> </li>

    <ol>

    <li><a href="#twoa">Sub-content Item A</a> </li>

    <li><a href="#twob">Sub-contents Item B</a> </li>

    </ol>

    <li><a href="#three">Contents Item Three</a> </li>

    </ol>

    How do I create a Java code that contains a list of web pages that will sync across multiple web pages when a new web page is added to the list?

    sync across multiple web pages
    What does "sync" mean?
    It could be done if a java program is able to read/write each of the web pages. It could read the list of pages from a file and use that data to write the needed html to the web pages. The web pages would need to have a special content that told the java program where to insert the html for the list.
