  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

  4. Create a main table-of-content page (example “ Table of Contents” ) with no body content if you wish to. If you do not create this page then your terms will still be highlighted but there will not be a central listing of all your terms.

  6. There are a handful of other optional preferences available in the dashboard.

I bought the pro version of the plugin and within an hour I realized I couldn’t use it most likely because of a conflict of another plugin. Asked for my money back instantly (they claim to believe in their products so much that they offer Money Back Guarantee) but as it turns out, that’s actually not the case. They only offer you your money back if you give them access to your website and they determine whether or not the plugin works. They asked me for the exact plugin that’s causing the conflict but I couldn’t really inspect that properly in an hour from when I bought the plugin until I contacted them. I have a sneaky suspicion of what it is but in all honesty that shouldn’t matter. I have been using WordPress since the very beginning and in that time I’ve bought A LOT of premium plugins and themes and it has happened on occasions that something doesn’t work together. In all other instances have I just got my money back – no questions asked. This isn’t really a review about the plugin itself which I’m sure works fine for most but their customer service, the deceptive Money-Back Guarantee and their unwillingness to budge from their somewhat hidden terms, which by the way are not a law of nature. You can choose to offer a good service regardless.

It works great in general. However on a couple of posts it stops the display of all images when it is set on… I haven’t found the code combination that produces this bug.

Works straight out of the box – just install and click on the tickbox bottom of each page. Don’t even need to bother with the shortcode unless you want to move the table. Definitely recommend this plugin. Don’t just move on because it hasn’t got five stars either!

as with every other tinpot capitalising WP plugin author, this draws you in with good spiel only to learn that it’s highly limited in the free version. Honestly, people like this are draining the life out of the internet dollar by dollar.

I installed CM Table of Contents on my website, hoping that it would display TOCs of my 900+ page (when printed to a PDF) documentation. I was very pleasantly surprised with the ease of installation, setup, and production-ready Tables of Content on my site. When I discovered a Bug in the hierarchical numbering scheme, the developers had a fix prepared in 4 days. When I submitted a Feature Request for a different parent/child TOC sorting method, the developers responded with an enhancement the following week. Support doesn’t get much better than this! -larry
