Wikipedia:WikiProject Indexes

Welcome to WikiProject Indexes (Indices). Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's development, organization and maintenance of Wikipedia indexes of topics. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the work. If you would like to help, please add yourself as a participant in the project, inquire on the talk page, and see the Tasks list, below.

  • Or, go to the following templates and click "What links here" on the toolbox menu on the sidebar on the left side of the screen: Template:compactTOC8


  • Develop and maintain alphabetical index articles on Wikipedia.
  • Develop standards for indexes in the encyclopedia.

Add links to all indexes to the index listEdit

The index list is at Wikipedia:Contents/Indices.

Fix tables of contentsEdit

Many index pages have sections that don't show up on their tables of contents (TOCs).

These need to be fixed using a TOC template. {{Compact TOC}} works great for this.

The hunt for index pages that aren't called "Index of"Edit

They hide in two ways:

  1. By not being included in Wikipedia:Contents/Indices, or
  2. By not having "Index of" in their titles

When you find them, please add them to the list below.

Those marked renamed have been renamed. Those marked placed have been added to Wikipedia:Contents/Indices.
