How to hide "article index" in multi-page article

Postby Sean Callagy » Wed Aug 18, 2010 11:05 pm

Is there a way to hide the "article index" that appears by default in an article after you start creating page breaks in it?

I've looked in Article Manager > Global Parameters and can't see anything.
I've also checked inside the Article Editor > Parameters (Article) and Parameters (Advanced) and can't see anything suitable there either.

So how do I turn off the article index?

Thanks.
Sean.

In the css files of your template look for a css entry table.contenttoc and introduce the attribute display: none; to that css entry.

Thanks! I found it in template css alright and can now make it disappear. Here is the code that does it:

Code: Select all

table.contenttoc {
   display: none; /* was no line here */
   margin: 0 0 10px 10px;
   padding: 0;
   width: 35%;
   float: right;
}


However, it is not all good news. :( Because the problem that I thought would be fixed by switching off the Article Index, still occurs.

It seems that whenever I insert page breaks into the article, the first and last page seem to influence the placement of the left menu. The left menu now gets pushed down and below the article while viewing the first and last page of the article. But while viewing the other pages of it, the leftmenu appears where it is supposed to appear (in the left column).

More investigation using Firebug indicates that on Page 1 and Page 5 of the article, the code for the Article Index tabled layout is still being called. But on Pages 2, 3 and 4 that table is not being called.

But it is greyed out so it is not active (according to Firebug). Yet it does seem to be influencing the position of the menu in col1.

I have now commented out all the code referring to the contenttoc division, but the problem still persists (you will also see some custom changes I was trying out).

Code: Select all

/* table.contenttoc {
   display: none; /* was no line here */
   margin: 0 0 10px 10px;
   padding: 0;
   width: 35%;
   float: right;
}

table.contenttoc a {
   text-decoration: none;
}

table.contenttoc td {
   padding: 1px 5px 1px 5px; /* was 1px 5px 1px 25px; */
   background: url(../images/bullet-list.gif) no-repeat 5% 50%;
}

table.contenttoc th {
   padding: 0 0 3px 3px; /* was 0 0 3PX; */
   border-bottom: 1px solid #CCCCCC;
   text-indent: 5px;
} */

Hi Sean,

Better late than never...

You can turn it off by going to Extensions >> Plugin Manager >> Content - Pagebreak >> Table of Contents >> Hide >> Save.

Kind regards,
Nick

@Nick Thanks, Dude. This was what we were looking for. Client did not like table of contents showing and initially thought we would use CSS to hide it. Thanks for the help!
