I bought the pro version to get support.. :)

So I have installed the pro version I am running joomla 3.8 on php version 7.0.023 i believe I have put the {index} code in the article. I am also running helix 3 as a template i don't know if that is conflicting or not.
Appreciate your help. :)
Thanks

Do you have this online so I can take a look?

Have you tried with the Joomla default template protostar?

Hi Peter,

The page that is using the Quick Index is here:
www.thewholenchilada.com/the-three-p-s/philosophy.html

i tried the prostar template but that isn't the issue as it didn't fix it. I also turned off the jHackguard protection plugin to see if that was blocking it but that didn't help either.

Please read the documentation on how Quick Index works:
www.regularlabs.com/extensions/quickindex/tutorial

It creates an index based on the heading tags in your content (by default H1-H3).
You only have H5 headings in your content. So it does not find anything to create an index on.

If you want it to create the index based on those H5 headings: see the Quick Index system plugin settings.

changed the <h5> tag to an <h3> and it still doesn't work.. If I remember right in the beginning i tried the <h1> tag and that didn't work..
What setting are you referring to in the plugin that would control the tags that it processes?
Thanks! :)

Can you give me (super) admin and (s)ftp access so I can take a look?
You can use the 'Hidden text' button in the forum editor to hide the confidential information.

Here is an example article where you see it working just fine:

I just altered your test article to match the coding format I am using in my article and it is still working.
i took out the curly braces in my code and took out the <strong> in my code that was nestled inside the <h3></h3> tags and my page still isn't working.
My formatting is exactly as yours. so why does it not work?

appreciate your help,

Rob

I think the issue could be the number of headings you have in the text. And that the code is running into memory limits.
Your content page is VERY long!

Ok, that is exactly the problem memory limit being reached so I guess busting it up in to two sections is in order. or is there a way to increase the memory limit?

Ok, great :)

Something else. It is not wise to use tables for layout.
I recommend you use divs with css styling (via classes).

Your template already loads Bootstrap, so you can use Bootstrap classes.
getbootstrap.com/docs/3.3/css/#grid

<div class="row">
  <div class="col-md-3">{index}</div>
  <div class="col-md-9">
    ...
  </div>
</div>
