When auto-numbering table of content headings, can these numbers be automatically applied to the actual headings in the text?

Hi,

Using Confluence for the wiki....When using the Insert Table of Contents function, you're given the option to number the table of contents list.

This works well, but when you see the saved page, the numbers don't extend to the actual headings that the TOC headings jump to.

Is it possible to add these numbers to the heading somehow?

thanks,

Lachlan

Wow... I am definitely late with an answer here... but we answer this question a lot, so I reply anyways.

If you want this, use the numbered headings macro inside the toc macro. The numbering from the numbered headings macro is used by the toc macro.

{toc}

{numbered-headings}

{toc}

is there a way to do this without using paid/free addons?

Not that I know of, it's the reason we wrote the add-on in the first place.

Hmm OK thanks anyway. I am keen to avoid add-ons where possible due to needing to validate their functionality for ISO compliance.
