Why do some profiles have a generated Contents section and some don't (and how to I fix the ones that don't)?

+3 votes
The profile I created for my great-grandmother, <a href="http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Neal-859&public=1">Annie Brien</a>, has a "Contents" section.  <a href="http://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Noland-165&public=1">my profile</a> doesn't have "Contents" and I'd like it to, but can't figure out how to "make it so."

WikiTree IDs are Noland-165 (mine) and Neal-859 (Gr-Grandmother's).

The answer: 4 or more headlines, click edit tab and add a few more headlines. Note using more "===" or "====" before and after a line creates subheadings in contents.


To create a heading place two equal signs == before and after the text you want as a heading.

For example, the heading above was created by typing: ==Creating Headings==

Placing three or four = signs before and after the text will produce smaller and smaller sub-headings.

When you have four or more headings a Table Of Contents is automatically created at the top of the page listing each heading.

All better! Thanks so much!  I'd looked at the Editing Tips page and didn't see it (and just looked again - still don't see it!).  Maybe I've been too long in front of the computer?  I was going to add you as trusted, but couldn't figure that one out either.  If I don't reply till Friday, it's because work/sleep/etc. got in the way.  
Thanks again!
Just had to say Michael - What a great public profile!  I have something to aspire to now :)
