Quick Index 2.2: Article Indexes can now be placed anywhere!

Watch the Video Tutorial!

The newest Quick Index release makes it possible to output an Index from any article wherever you want, such as in a module or inside another article.

Quick Index is the Joomla plugin that allows you to easily add an index (Table of Contents) to your content. The index will be generated based on the headings in your content.

Today, version 2.2 of Quick Index has been released, introducing a brand new feature exclusive to the Pro version of the extension. Watch the new Video Tutorial below, and read on for the written details.

The Pro Version

An overview of the Pro version of Quick Index

Place an Article Index anywhere Pro only

The Pro version of Quick Index now allows to output an Index from an article wherever you want, not necessarily within the same content where the headings reside.

This can be very useful to place the Index of an article inside a module (for example in the sidebar position), or even in a completely different page, with the links of the Index automatically pointing to the headings of that article.

If your article has an Index, you can also show it in any other position you want. Simply specify the desired article with an article attribute inside the {index} tag.

You can insert either the ID or the title of the article that you want to get the Index from, both options will work:

{index article="12"}
{index article="My Article Title"}

Current Article Index

You can also get the Index from the current active article, by simply doing:

{index article="current"}

Note: If the Index for the current article is placed in a module in the same page, the original index in the article will be automatically hidden, to avoid having two identical indexes showing on the same page.

Multiple Indexes

If the article has more than one Index in its content, you can even specify which ones you want to grab by using their numbers. For instance, to get only the 2nd and 4th index from an article:

{index article="My Article Title" index="2,4"}
