Greetings! We’ve added a table of contents module to the forums. Users may convert their post into a Table of Contents post using the little gear icon on the toolbar and selecting “Insert table of contents”:

Once a post has a table of contents inserted, the module will search for anything with a header tag of some sort (# Header, for example) and turn that into a new section for your table of contents.

For example:

Header 1

  • Contents 1

Header 2

  • Contents 2

Header 3

  • Contents 3

The formatting for the above is simply:

# Header 1
* Contents 1

# Header 2
* Contents 2

# Header 3
* Contents 3

You may also use additional header tags to create sub-chapters for your table of contents, like so:

Header 1 (Big)

  • Blah blah blah

Header 2 (Smaller)

  • blah blah blah

Header 2.2

  • blah blah blah

Header 2.3

  • blah blah blah

Header 3 (Smaller still)

  • blah blah blah

Header 3

  • blah blah blah

And the formatting for this, for example, is:

# Header 1 (Big)
* Blah blah blah

## Header 2 (Smaller)
* blah blah blah

### Header 3 (Smaller still)
*blah blah blah

You can see how this affects the table of contents column on the right-hand side of this post. You may navigate to each section by clicking on the section title from the column on the right.

For mobile users, you’ll see a little “Table of Contents” button at the bottom-right of your screen,

which when tapped will open up a window of all sections of the topic for hopefully easier navigation.

This feature is available to all users of Trust Level 1 (Basic Member) and above. A Table of Contents can only be inserted into the first post of any topic.

Hopefully this helps with readability for folks making megaposts or guides, and we hope to be able to utilize this feature in the future as well (like for patch notes).

For an example of a table of contents post with lots of stuff in it, here’s this example using Secret World Legends’ patch notes: Test post for table of contents
