## Positioning the TOC Edit

The TOC automatically appears just before the first heading.

You can change that by typing `__TOC__`, a magic word, in the place on the page where you want it to appear (in source mode).

### Pages with fewer than three headings Edit

If you'd like to show the TOC for a page with fewer than three headings, simply use `__FORCETOC__` to force a TOC to be shown.

Alternatively, use `__TOC__` to place it in a specific place (besides forcing it to show).

### Hiding the TOC Edit

Type `__NOTOC__` anywhere on the page to remove the TOC. This is often used on a community's main page.

### Floating table Edit

The TOC can be moved to a floating table on the right side by using the `{{tocright}}` template (which exists on most wikis).

## A custom TOC Edit

If you don't want the usual format of the TOC, you can disable the automatic TOC using `__NOTOC__` and then add a manual TOC instead. This is often done to link to alphabetised sections. For example, if you want to link to 26 sections lettered A to Z, you can use a Compact TOC which is a special template used instead of the standard TOC.

You can copy the Compact TOC template from Community Central to your wiki if you want to use this. Here's how it looks:

Contents: Top - 0–9 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

## Notes Edit

### Multiple TOCs on one page Edit

If `__TOC__` is used multiple times, only the first occurrence causes a TOC to appear. If you want extra ones, you will need to add them manually, using a template like CompactTOC.

### Showing and hiding the TOC Edit

You can click the show/hide link to expand or collapse the TOC. By default, logged in users see the TOC shown by default and unregistered users see the TOC collapsed by default. When you click show or hide, the wiki will remember your preference and do the same for the next page you visit.
