Wikipedia:Template index/Compact tables of contents

This page lists ways to create several kinds of compact tables of contents (TOC). Please note that a normal compact TOC will not work when put on Category pages; this page contains a separate section instructing you how to put a compact TOC on Category pages.

Similar to the above, includes the prefix in the links: designed for use with pages such as List of acronyms and initialisms: A.

{{TOC US states|before=|after=Other section|noendlinks=}}

Use one of these on pages whose title begins with "Category:".
