I'm looking to accomplish what was shown here: Table of Contents with Chapter

Where the toc was changed from

  1 Introduction

to

Chapter 1 Introduction

Except I also have an abstract, acknowledgements, list of tables, and list of figures in the toc.

When I implement the solution my List of Tables, List of Figures, Acknowledgements and Abstract get piled on top of each other. My TOC compiled and looked fine (though not the way I wanted) before I added the \titlecontents block of code suggested in the above question.

Piled TOC

% MWE
\documentclass{report}
\usepackage{titletoc}% http://ctan.org/pkg/titletoc
\titlecontents*{chapter}% <section-type>
  [0pt]% <left>
  {\addvspace{1em}}% <above-code>
  {\bfseries\chaptername\ \thecontentslabel\quad}% <numbered-entry-format>
  {}% <numberless-entry-format>
  {\bfseries\hfill\contentspage}% <filler-page-format>

    Put the code \titlecontents*{chapter}... not in the preamble, but just before you start with your chapters. – karlkoeller Oct 18 '13 at 19:33
  • I get undefined control sequence errors when I do that. – ABM Oct 18 '13 at 19:39
  • I mean all the code starting with \titlecontents*{chapter} and ending with {\bfseries\hfill\contentspage} – karlkoeller Oct 18 '13 at 19:40
  • Yes I had an error in my preamble. Your fix solved it. Now the chapter numbers and section numbers are out of alignment. They are not in the examples from the question I link to. – ABM Oct 18 '13 at 19:45
  • It works fine for me – karlkoeller Oct 18 '13 at 19:59
