It is very easy to create an index: Simply place {index} at the top of your content.

Quick Index will replace the {index} tag with a table of contents. This index will contain anchor links to the different headings in your content.

You will need to use the heading tags (<h1> to <h6>) in your content to tell Quick Index what the headings are.

Quick Index will only collect the headings found AFTER the {index} tag.

Note: Quick Index is most stable and reliable if you place the {index} tag on its own new paragraph line.

Overruling parameters

Further on in this tutorial you will see how you can control what the index includes and how it looks.

There are a lot of options in the Quick Index Plugin Settings in which you can set up the default behaviour.
But you can just about override every default setting via the {index} tag by adding extra parameters.

The syntax of these parameters looks like name="value", which you might recognize from how HTML works. For example:

{index ordered="false" max="3"}
