[edit] info-48x48.png Template documentation

{{TOCleft}} forces the auto-generated Table of Contents for an article to appear in a table that is floated to the left side of the page (as seen left), in order to improve article layout.

Usage

Insert {{TOCleft}} at the point in the article where you want the top of the Table of Contents box to appear. Use with {{-}} or {{clear}} to prevent image collisions.

Cautions

Do not use this template to just force word wrap around the TOC, as this is inappropriate method of achieving this. Instead add a CSS class to your monobook.css file which will apply site wide.

Do not place this template so that the TOC aligns with a large image or infobox; this breaks the layout on narrow screens (even users with screens as wide as 1024px wide can have problems). Also, a TOC that crosses a section division is probably a poor idea, if that can be avoided.

Unless the section in which the {{TOCleft}} is placed is long enough, the result may well be undesirable. Note particularly that if the TOC is floated left of a bulleted list, the bullets will be hidden.
