I'm trying to make an Index of my documents for all the section and subsection that I have, using \tableofcontents , but I don't understand why I have two problems...

I have this code in my index page

\newpage
\tableofcontents

First problem) but this shows me only the title and the name of the author of the relation, and I don't want that these informations i my index, how can I fix it?

I don't want to see the text (title and authors) in the red circle...

FIXED Second problem) I want to add my sections and subsections to the index, I read that I have to use under each section/subsection

So, I added it under my Intro section like this

\newpage
\section{Intro}
\labelsec{Intro}

But my \tableofcontents don't change and it only shows the title of my relation... I read various questions about these problems, but no solution has solved my problem.

Solution to second problem: I added \setcounter{secnumdepth}{3} and \setcounter{tocdepth}{3} before the \begin{document}

THIS IS THE FULL CODE (without text in sections)

If I have to add more code, tell me. Thank in advance!

• Please post a compilable document, not just fragments only. Where is \labelsec coming from. And most likely you have to change the tocdepth counter value to 2 in order to see the subsections in the ToC

• I added \setcounter{secnumdepth}{3} and \setcounter{tocdepth}{3} and the second problem is solved... Jan 27, 2017 at 8:15
• It is not the full code, it is still not compilable for us.

• added more code, now it's compilable? Jan 27, 2017 at 8:39
• After removing \usepackage{manifest} it is compilable. And there some strange settings, most of which you would get more easily with cleverref, I think, but the main problem is \maketitle from llncs class. It adds the title to the ToC
– user31729

\maketitle from llncs class adds the title and author names to the ToC automatically.

This can be prevented by a redefinition of \maketitle (which is too long here) or a patching:

\usepackage{xpatch}

\makeatletter
\xpatchcmd{\maketitle}{%
}{% Replace by 'nothing'
}{\typeout{success}}{\typeout{failed}}

\xpatchcmd{\maketitle}{%
}{%
% Replace by nothing
}{\typeout{Success}}{\typeout{Failed patching!}}
\makeatother

The code removes \addcontentsline... etc from the \maketitle command.

The \makeatletter...\makeatother pair is essential here, otherwise the patching would fail.

In addition, the 'template' is not very well designed, as is often the case with 'templates'.
