# No PDF bookmarks when using llncs class

When using hyperref together with Springer's LNCS class (llncs), only the title of the document shows up in the PDF bookmarks.

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass{llncs}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\title{Foobar}

\begin{document}
\maketitle
\section{Foo}
\section{Bar}
\end{document}


When you compile this document, the only entry in the PDF bookmarks is one for "Foobar" (which shouldn't be there) and there are no entries for the sections.

Does anybody have an idea what the problem could be?

I'm using TeX Live 2011 and llncs 2.17.

I think this behaviour is intended. The llncs document class is used to put multiple articles into one volume. Each article title appears in the table of contents and the pdf bookmarks, but sections within the articles do not.

\documentclass{llncs}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\begin{document}
\tableofcontents
%
\title{Sheep}
\maketitle
\section{Black sheep}
\section{White sheep}
%
\title{Goats}
\maketitle
\end{document}

If you want to employ llncs for your personal use, then

\documentclass{llncs}

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\makeatletter

That's what I needed! But somehow, I didn't get author bookmarks, and I only needed tocdepth. That's with llncs 2.18 released last week, but they don't document related changes. –  Blaisorblade Oct 8 '13 at 20:00
The history.txt from llncs2e.zip says that version 2.15 (from March 2010) “fixed broken hyperref interoperability.” So tocdepth is probably the only necessary thing now. –  Luke Maurer Feb 18 at 23:37
