Table of contents

From Cookipedia

T.O.C and edit sections

The normal default on a MediaWiki is to show a table of contents if there are more than 3 headings (including sub headings), as in the following example below: A,B,C.

This behavior, together with the paragraph edit tabs to the right of each section is desirable if the page length is very long but my personal opinion is that it makes the page look ungainly and the formatting is pretty poor if there are multiple images. To remove this behaviour from most pages, I have included the __NOTOC__ and the __NOEDITECTION__ tags in the pre-configured article templates.

If you do not want these behaviors disabled, feel free to remove the __NOTOC__ and the __NOEDITECTION__ tags from the page you create before you save it.

Important note: The standard recipe template and recipe builder text includes the template {{Template:CookTools}} which as well as containing a rudimentary top navigation, also contains these tags. If you cannot work around this, have a chat with me and I will assist you.

Include the tag: __NOEDITECTION__ anywhere in the document
to turn off section edit tags or remove it to revert them
Include the tag: __NOTOC__ anywhere in the document
to turn off the table of contents, or remove it to revert them

Linking directly to a heading

You can create a link that will take the visitor directly to a heading in a page, even if the table of contents is not shown. The page will scroll to that point unless the page is too short to scroll. This link takes you to heading Ab

Important note: If the page you are linking to is a category, you must add a leading colon, otherwise the containing page will become part of the category and the link won't show. Oil and butter (Spanish recipes)

subheading Ab

"But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?"

Heading B

subheading Ba

"At vero eos et accusamus et iusto odio dignissimos ducimus qui blanditiis praesentium voluptatum deleniti atque corrupti quos dolores et quas molestias excepturi sint occaecati cupiditate non provident, similique sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollitia animi, id est laborum et dolorum fuga. Et harum quidem rerum facilis est et expedita distinctio. Nam libero tempore, cum soluta nobis est eligendi optio cumque nihil impedit quo minus id quod maxime placeat facere possimus, omnis voluptas assumenda est, omnis dolor repellendus. Temporibus autem quibusdam et aut officiis debitis aut rerum necessitatibus saepe eveniet ut et voluptates repudiandae sint et molestiae non recusandae. Itaque earum rerum hic tenetur a sapiente delectus, ut aut reiciendis voluptatibus maiores alias consequatur aut perferendis doloribus asperiores repellat."

"On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralised by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains."

Heading c

"Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum."
