How to Add a Table of Contents to a Wikispace
All right today, I would like to teach you how to insert a table of contents into your Wikispace. If you notice I created a custom one for my Wikispace right here using CSS. That’s probably a tutorial for another time but really cool feature in Wikispaces. What it allows you to do is if you have a lot of information on a page it’s helpful to create a table of contents so that users can click on a certain topic and then it will bring them down to that section of the page. They don’t have to scroll all the way down.
So instead of scrolling doing all these they can simply do this and it jumps down where it is. So in order to do that it’s really simple and it actually involves a little bit of Wikitext which is just a code that Wikispace.com has provided for its users. So to do that you go ahead and click on edit and then you can go ahead and click on text editor right here. Now if you notice I have this piece of Wikitext at the very top of the text edit section and all it is two left brackets and then TOC and the two right brackets.
So if I just erase it and type it out again T for table, O for of, C for Contents two right brackets, it’s that simple. You have to place it above everything else on its own separate line and then all of your other information on your page should go beneath it. Now, here’s one point that you need to listen to you closely. In order to actually get some sections into your Table of Contents you have to create some headings. So in order to do that I went ahead and decided to use a Wikitext for this as well, you don’t have to but I just find it using the text editors a little bit easier and less buggy for My Computer and my browser.
So all you need to do to do this is whatever section you want to create and that you want to show up in the Table of Contents just type in two equal signs before the phrase or the word and then two equal signs afterwards. If you do that it will automatically show up in your Table of Contents and you’ll be ready to go.
So that’s it. That’s just one way to create a really helpful Table of Contents for you, users.
