Using panel titles in Table of Contents

Hello all,


I'm currently trying to get titles used in the Panel macro into a table of contents. Is this possible or do I have to add these in a different way?

The table of contents (TOC ) macro picks up Headings so if you format the titles within the macro as Headings they will be linked in the TOC.

If you need the TOC to link to the title of the panel macro itself, you will have to build the TOC manually using the anchor macro above each panel, and links to the anchors.

That's sub-optimal. :(

Thats not good indeed, it would be nice to be able to add headings to panel titles so that it appears in the TOC

@Ann Worley Is there an open suggestion that we can vote on to make the panel title 'findable' in table of contents macro?

(even if we can default it to h3) :D

I was looking to use panel title in a TOC as well... Boss wants a TOC with links to make getting to a topic someone is looking for quickly. I used panels and have everything looking organized and sorted. Sad that you need to add another layer of work into the page and that it isn't simple to use them in the TOC and not have to redo everything I started.

I would love to see a way to easily include panels in the ToC while still formatting the content itself as paragraph. How about a checkbox for "include in ToC" or a way to format the panel title in the edit dialogue for the panel?


For now, I got around it by adding a heading in white (invisible) text above the panels.
