Quartz can automatically generate a table of contents from a list of headings on each page. It will also show you your current scroll position on the site by marking headings you’ve scrolled through with a different colour.

By default, it will show all headers from H1 (# Title) all the way to H3 (### Title) and will only show the table of contents if there is more than 1 header on the page. You can also hide the table of contents on a page by adding showToc: false to the frontmatter for that page.


This feature requires both Plugin.TableOfContents in your quartz.config.ts and Component.TableOfContents in your quartz.layout.ts to function correctly.


  • Removing table of contents: remove all instances of Plugin.TableOfContents() from quartz.config.ts. and Component.TableOfContents() from quartz.layout.ts
  • Changing the max depth: pass in a parameter to Plugin.TableOfContents({ maxDepth: 4 })
  • Changing the minimum number of entries in the Table of Contents before it renders: pass in a parameter to Plugin.TableOfContents({ minEntries: 3 })
  • Component: quartz/components/TableOfContents.tsx
  • Style:
    • Modern (default): quartz/components/styles/toc.scss
    • Legacy Quartz 3 style: quartz/components/styles/legacyToc.scss
  • Script: quartz/components/scripts/toc.inline.ts
