TOC in one page, content in others

Pedro Flores
So I ran into this small problem.  I've created a rather big FAQ page
which has a rather big table of contents (TOC).  My wiki users are
complaining that the FAQ is too big, and that they would rather have the
big TOC in one page and then move the wiki content to different pages.
Can this be achieved, to have an automatically generated TOC in a single
page and have the content on different pages?  Or even have the big TOC
in a single page and have all the content in another single page? Thanks.

You could place each item in a category and then the category page is the
TOC. There are also extensions, like the DynamicPageList extension. But
since this extension breaks the cache horrible, I would not recommend
using it. I dimly remember there is also a FAQ extension, which makes
very nice FAQ style TOCs. Maybe google for it :D

Best wishes,

Tels

First of all, thanks for your suggestions.  I tried searching for a FAQ
extension and didn't find anything useful.  I came across the
NiceCategoryList extension but it didn't work with my 1.5.8 setup, when
including the extesion in LocalSettings.php all pages in the wiki would
show up blank.
Anybody has any other ideas/suggestions?  Thanks.

That was the one I had in mind. I have not tried it myself, tho.

No, sorry I have run out of ideas :(
