Need help adding table of contents

I want to start adding table of contents to my books. The thing is that I just want the ToC to be specific pages. I tried searching Google and it just shows complicated instructions on headers and finding specific tags.

At the moment I'm just trying to add 6 chapters to the ToC for a Manga book.

You need an editor.
Conversion takes what is there and simply converts it to something based upon the source.
Among thing Calibre looks for are Keywords: Chapter, Part (these are user configurable in Detection), Heading type (H1, H2, H3)
You can us Markup (that tales some kind of editor also)

So where do I find this Markup? I've tried Google searching and no luck.

First thing my Google found for 'Markup' was https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markup_language

You've probably been hijacked by the Mountain View Marketeers

It's easier to create an ePub as your source and then convert that to either KF8 or Mobi (depends which one you want).

You'll need to edit your ebook's source file, using an HTML editor like Dreamweaver, or it may even work to open the source file in a text editor like Notepad or TextEdit. I'm afraid you'll need to have some knowledge of code for your task to be successful. Or ask someone else who understands coding to do it for you.
