Table of contents anchoring

  • Problem: In mobile versions (and desktop versions), if you want to access the table of contents bar, it is quite hard.
  • Who would benefit: Readers.
  • Proposed solution: Implement a TOC quick access button at pages that have Table of Contents. This can be done across mobile and desktop, where if the TOC is inaccessable at page location (at desktop), a button appears, where when clicked, shows the table of contents as a popup box.
  • More comments: This have been achieved across various methods that hijack the magic word __TOC__ to be put into a <html> tag. However, this workaround requires user scripts, and is definitely not anything that can be called accessability. This should be considered as an accessability tool.

  • very important. Do not forget to add, the function: value transfer. In the mobile version, the option does not exist, it is very lacking. Thanks, and at night if there are any disruptions, I translated using Google Translate. לבלוב (talk) 09:36, 10 December 2020 (UTC)[reply]
