Here is a plugin for B2Evolution 1.6, that creates a renders the special tag:
<!--toc--> as a table of contents.
This way you can create a menu post that displays posts from a certain category. This is handy, if you use b2evolution as a content system for a traditional web site, not just as a blog.
Here is a sample use. For the top 5 posts in the B2evolution category, and the first 10 words from each post, showing dates; use:
<!--toc dates="true" num="5" cut="10" category="29"-->
Sample removed when blog moved to wordpress
The blog’s or the skin’s css file can be used to customize the display of the table of contents.
Download the file and save it in your b2evolution plugins directory.
