# [NTG-context] Chapters not sowing up in ToC

When attempting to place only the chapter number on the first page of a
chapter, the chapters do not appear in the ToC & the ToC does not display.
Inserting #2 just before the last } in the definition for MyChapterCommand
causes the ToC to appear with chapter names although it and the chapters are
ugly.

Is it necessary to include chapter names at the beginning of chapters?
Perhaps this is intended because leaving chapter names off the beginning of
chapters would reduce the value of the ToC. Maybe ToCs are not desired in
such situations.

%very ugly
\def\MyChapterCommand#1#2% #1 is number, #2 is text
{\framed[frame=off]

[command=\MyChapterCommand,
after={\blank[0.5in]},before={\blank[force,1.0in]}]

\starttext

\chapter{The\\Second\\Chapter}
