Is there any syntax that when wrapped around content, automatically builds a table of contents towards the top of the wiki, similarly to how the Media Wiki works? I am using SharePoint 2013.

Recently I updated my Add navigation table to wiki page solution to support multiple levels and SharePoint 2013.

The new solution is a configurable jquery plugin and is documented in the blog post Revised: Table of Contents for Wiki Pages


There is no OOTB capability in SP 2013 that will let you have a table of contents from a selected portion of content, however there are some nifty workarounds available mentioned below you can try it out.

SP 2010 workaround, should be valid for 2013


I've got a simpler solution that requires no deployment at all: just add a UserCustomAction with a ScriptLink by running the following in the browser developer tools console:

var sp = SP.ClientContext.get_current();
var uca = sp.get_web().get_userCustomActions().add();
uca.set_scriptBlock('{ \
function addWikiToC() {\
    var contentContainer = $(\'#contentBox div.edit-mode-border\'), \
        tocContainer = $(\'.ewiki-slink\');\
    tocContainer.append(\'<div id="pageTOC" style="margin-top:1.1em; width:250px;"><strong>Table of Contents</strong><div id="pageTOC-UL"></div></div>\');\
                    .each(function () {\
                        $(\'#pageTOC-UL\').append(\'<div style="padding-left:\'+this.tagName.replace(/h/ig,\'\')+\'em"><a onclick="javascript:$(\\\'#s4-workspace\\\').animate({scrollTop: \'+($(this).offset().top-80)+\'}, 1000)">\'+$(this).text()+\'</a></div>\');\

In this rudimentary form it only works on all enterprise wiki pages with the social rating box and builds a sequence of indented div elements below it, but it's very easy improve by changing selectors for contentContainer and styles for entries below pageTOC-UL.
