Help/CreateTocPlugin

The CreateToc plugin allows to create a dynamical Table of Contents of all headers. It also allows to number the headers in the page.

The headers might be in classic Phpwiki syntax or in Wikicreole/Mediawiki syntax (see below).

The Table of Contents can easily be inserted by clicking on the TOC button in the Edit toolbar.

Known Problems

  • If you include pages via Template or IncludePage plugins, the Table of Contents will not contain the headers of the included pages.
  • The Table of Contents will be incorrect if a header contains:

    • a Template plugin call via {{ }},
    • an image,
    • or a ~.
  • If you preview the page, the Table of Contents will not be correct if you modified headers. The Table of Contents will be taken from the last saved revision.
