SimpleTOC – Bloco de sumário


Add a Table of Contents block to your posts and pages. The TOC is a nested list of links to all heading found in the post or page. To use it, simply add a block and search for “SimpleTOC” or just “TOC”.

The maximum depth of the toc can be configured in in the blocks’ sidebar among many other options. There can hide the headline “Table of Contents” and add your own by using a normal heading block.

SimpleTOC is open-source and developed on GitHub Pages. If you find a bug or have an idea for a feature please feel free to contribute and create a pull request.

Spin up a new WordPress instance with the SimpleTOC plugin already installed.

How do I add a background color to SimpleTOC using Gutenberg groups?

Select the block and select “group” in the context menu. Apply “background color”, “link color” and “text color” to this group. SimpleTOC will inherit these styles. You would like to use this styled SimpleTOC group next time you write a post? Convert it to a reusable block.

How to exclude a single heading from the TOC?

If you really want to hide a single heading from the table of contents, then add the CSS class “simpletoc-hidden” to a heading block. You can find this field in the same place as the HTML anchor field: In the Block > Advanced sidebar. But first, think about the reason you would like to hide a specific heading. Maybe you would like to remove all headings of a specific depth level. Then there is an option for that in the blocks options in Gutenberg. If you think this heading should not be part of the toc perhaps it is not needed in the post itself?

I would like to save my SimpleTOC settings as default. Is that possible?

You can convert your configured SimpleTOC block into a reusable block in Gutenberg. It will keep its settings. This way, you can use your desired settings for each new post by adding the reusable block.

How to add a div tag wrapper to the TOC?

If you add a custom class to the SimpleTOC block in “Advanced” and then “Additional CSS Class(es)” a div with that class will be wrapped around the HTML output. You can force this with a filter, too.


add_filter( 'simpletoc_wrapper_enabled', '__return_true' );

How to allow developers to exclude specific headings programmatically?

Use the ‘simpletoc_excluded_blocks’ filter. For example, this code will exclude heading blocks that are inside a column block.


add_filter( 'simpletoc_excluded_blocks', function ( array $blocks ) {
    $blocks[] = 'core/column';

    return $blocks;
} );

How do I change the color of the accordion menu?

The heavy plus character I used can not be colored with css without hacks. But you can change the icon to something else and change the color of the new icon.

.simpletoc-collapsible::after {
    content: "✖";
    color: #e94c89;

Como adicionar o SimpleTOC a todos os artigos automaticamente?

I don’t see an easy solution at the moment. SimpleTOC is only a block that can be placed in your post. If there was a plugin that adds blocks to every post, then this would be the solution. I think this should be another separate plug-in to keep the code of SimpleTOC clean and … well, simple.

I'm not a code and I can't judge of the real optimization of this plugin but it is simple to use and clean. Much appreciated.

I like the plugin a lot. It's simple. It works pretty well and has a few configurations but not too many. Thanks for it! I am using it to learn Wordpress blocks development, which coming from PHP I think it's quite a challenge. Blocks change the development weight from PHP to JS/React a lot!

The beauty of SimpleTOC is that you can add it to longer posts that need a Table of Contents, with the ability to choose which Heading levels should be shown and other options. Nothing fancy ... and that's what I like about this plug-in. Thanks / Danke to Mark.

A great plugin allowing a Table of Contents to be created with minimal input. A great follow-up service too. Marc was extremely helpful and reviewed my query within minutes of posting. He guided me through what I needed to do, and he was able to update me on my query. Super service.

This is a fantastic plugin. It's much simpler and more lightweight than any of the other options I came across. It also makes an awesome learning tool for someone dipping their toes into custom block creation. It was great to be able to look at the code and think wow, this totally makes sense!
