If you would like to help, please add yourself as a participant in the project, inquire on the talk page, and see the Tasks list, below.

Tasks[edit]


Add links to all indexes to the index list[edit]

The index list is at Portal:Contents/Indices.

Fix tables of contents[edit]

Many index pages have sections that don't show up on their tables of contents (TOCs).

These need to be fixed using a TOC template. {{compactTOC8}} works great for this.

The hunt for index pages that aren't called "Index of"[edit]

They hide in two ways:

  1. By not being included in Portal:Contents/Index, or
  2. By not having "Index of" in their titles

When you find them, please add them to the list below.

Those marked renamed have been renamed. Those marked placed have been added to Portal:Contents/Index.

Category puzzle Categories[edit]

  • Below is a second category showing all articles with the {{WikiProject Index}} tag:

Templates[edit]

  • {{compactTOC8}} - full featured table of contents template for use on alphabetical index pages. Many options.
  • {{cto}} - linkbox for the See also section of articles.
