Table of contents and cross-reference management.

This plugin adds powerful support for generation and maintenance of tables of contents and cross-references within a TWiki web. Originally developed for use by Motorola documentation teams.

Syntax Rules

Adds a number of new tags:

  • %SECTIONn% - inserts an anchored section header
  • %CONTENTS% - generates a table of contents for a topic or an entire web, with full expansion depth control
  • %REF% - inserts a symbolically named cross-reference URL
  • %ANCHOR% - inserts a symbolically named jump target

The TWiki.TocPluginHelp topic in the installation contains complete help information.
