RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $2397Goal: $5000

If an article contains more than three headings, a Table Of Contents (TOC) will normally be created automatically.

Removing TOC[edit]

If, for whatever reason, a TOC isn't wanted it can be switched off by including when editing: "__NOTOC__" (that's: "underscore, underscore,N,O,T,O,C,underscore,underscore" meaning NO Table Of Contents). It is usual to put this at the top of the page, it will not show in the page.

Adding TOC manually[edit]

If "__FORCETOC__ "(2 x underscore each side) is used, then a TOC will occur before the first heading even if there are three or fewer headings.

Similarly if "__TOC__" (2 x underscore each side) is used, then a TOC will occur at the point where "__TOC__" is placed even if there are three or fewer headings. You can thus place the TOC at any point vertically or horizontally or in a table cell.

NB: "__TOC__" overrides __NOTOC__".

In a table[edit]

The table of contents can be forced into a floating table on the right hand of the screen with the code below:

{| align="right"
| __TOC__
|}
