So when you create an index or a listoflistings, they are not listed in \tableofcontents.


To make them appear, I entered custom content lines



They now appear, but without numbering;

A. Bibliography

How can I make them get the correct numbering? I don't want it to be static, because the order may change or some more appendices are added...

a bibliography and an index are never numbered!

Um, okay... Why's that? – Florian Peschka May 4 '11 at 7:02
@ApoY2k: TRADITION. Do yourself a favour and page through a number of books. Even beter try to find a copy of a good style manual such as the Chicago Manual of Style. – Danie Els May 4 '11 at 7:15
it is obviously that they are at the end of each publication, if present. It makes no sense to have it numbered. – Herbert May 4 '11 at 7:18
So I also shouldn't list them in the TOC? – Florian Peschka May 4 '11 at 7:20
some people say yes and some no, so it is your decision ... – Herbert May 4 '11 at 7:22

As option to your document class:

liststotocnumbered, % All lists are numbered in the TOC
