How Does the Table of Contents Work on Triptipedia?

Most travel tips on Triptipedia have a table of contents that allows the reader to jump to a specific section of the article.

Even this article has one:

How can I create a table of contents on my tips?

The table of contents is generated automatically based on your article's headings. To make reading easier, the moderator in charge of your travel tip will choose to display it or not when publishing.

The only thing you have to do is to use headings properly.

Using headings to structure your article

When you write a travel tip, our editor offers you the possibility to add headings.

Headings in Triptipedia's editor

Those headings will structure your article and will be used to generate a table of contents.

Always use "Heading 2" for your main headings (heading 1 is technically the title of your travel tip). Then, use the next heading level for a subheading.

For the techies out there: The heading level of the Triptipedia editor matches the HTML <h*> markup. A "heading 2" will generate a <h2> and so on.

Here's an example with only the headings of an article:

This will generate the following table of contents:

The table of contents is displayed just before the travel tip's first heading 2.
