Why did you do this?

Because I needed a simple plugin to do this job and decided to do it on his own. I believe that a Table of Contents does not need Javascript and additional css. Furthermore the plugin should work out-of-the-box without any configuration.

How do I change the TOC heading ‘Table of contents’ to some other words?

Hide the headline in the sidebar options of SimpleTOC and add your own heading.

How do I add SimpleTOC to all articles automatically?

I don’t see an easy solution at the moment. SimpleTOC is only a block that can be placed in your post. If there would be 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. Maybe someone knows of a plug-in that adds blocks automatically to all posts with some parameters and settings? What about site editing in WordPress? I think the core team is working on something like that. I will keep this post open. If I have gained more knowledge how to solve this I will add this feature.

How do I add a background color to SimpleTOC?

SimpleTOC is simple. It will never load JavaScript or CSS. But you can add custom CSS yourself to your theme:

.simpletoc {
    padding: 1em 2em;
    background: #bada55;

If you want to add a color including the headline, add a custom css class to the SimpleTOC block. Name it “toctoc” or something like that.

.toctoc {
    padding: 1em 1em;
    background: #bada55;

If you use that CSS it will add a colored background to the whole TOC including the heading.

How do I add smooth scrolling?

You can optionally add the css class “smooth-scroll” to each link the TOC. Then you can install plugin that uses these classes.

Awesome, super-fast and super-lightweight without any added fluff ... just how I want it. To make typography, spacing, etc adjustments, I put it in a GenerateBlocks container ... easy-peasy 😉

Easy use, no problem ! But, language pack doesn't work. Whatever, we can replace "table of contents" with CSS. It could be fine if we can link an anchor when creating an internal link in page, product, article, ...

Perfect. Lightweight. Only wish it had AMP-friendly collapse options using "toggleVisibility" or something along those lines.

The plugin is perfect. The most important thing is that it does not use javascript. Just configure a block as needed and use it as a reusable block. Very good plugin - thanks for the good work

Adding the SimpleTOC block to my pages is super easy, it works without any fuss, and it hasn't had any performance impacts as far as I can tell. I did find one bug, but the developer was able to fix it and publish a new version within a day or two, and they were very polite about it.
