Medium articles now have a table of contents. For years, Medium writers have had to resort to complicated workarounds to link directly to specific content in their articles. After all, search engines favor longer pieces over scattered bits of helpful information. First spotted over at Elemental, a quick look to the left on the desktop site shows you a helpful list of headings that you can quickly head to.

While it would make more sense on the mobile version (it hasn’t been implemented yet), it’s still a move in the right direction. I hope the feature goes live for everyone soon. Medium’s table of contents will certainly come in handy for a certain laptop guide that I’ve been meaning to work on.
Thank you, Medium.

Casey Botticello, I can’t wait to see your take on this.
