TypePad Post Titles by Categories?

TypePad Filter: Is it possible to create an "index" page on my TypePad blog that generates a list of all blog post titles under each category or tag, with the post titles being linked to the particular post?

I do not want any content other than the post titles and tag/category name on this index page. The goal is for readers to quickly find a specific post of interest without having to scan a whole page of posts under that category that also includes the opening text of each and every post (the TypePad default). For example:

Category or Tag Name
- Post #1 Title
- Post #2 Title
- Post #3 Title

Next Category or Tag Name
- Post #1 Title
- Post #2 Title
- Post #3 Title

Real World Example:

Pork Recipes(Category/Tag Name)
- Kung Pao Pork
- Schnitzel
- BBQ Shoulder
- Grandma's Baked Pork Chops

IANAC (I am not a coder), so this may be a really simple thing to do, but it's currently beyond my abilities - but I'm willing to learn! If the answer is "not in TypePad," then what are some alternatives? But I'd really like to stay with Typepad if possible. FWIW, I have a Pro level TypePad account.

This can't be done automatically or with Basic Templates, but you might be able to wrangle it by using Advanced Templates (the ability to do this comes with a Pro level account). Using Advanced Templates requires that you be comfortable with coding, at least to a certain extent (HTML, CSS, and TypePad Advanced Template tags) though, which you might not like.

I'm part of the TypePad Support team, so if you wanted to open up a Help Ticket with more information, we can help you out over there! :-)
