How Do I Place In Custom Locations?

How Do I Add Custom Styles?

The content display and side bar are wrapped with a


div> with an assigned css class. You can put the classes into your own style sheet and use further declarations to target elements within the div.

For Content:(uses <ol>,Does not use an H tag for title)

For Sidebar: (uses <ul>, traditional h2 tag for title)

This works with heading levels. Have some issues: * If you add attributes to headings the heading is missed from the table of contents * There are many errors on the admin page that show that could easily be fixed by the author * Styling is flexible – but you have to add your own css rather than have the styling in the admin of the plugin which would be useful * There are no options to position the TOC. It comes out where the shortcode is added. This is a plus and minus. I like it but I would think for those less able to style pages it would be an issue. Overall I like the plugin and it does what it says. If the author could get rid of the pesky errors that are displayed in the admin interface it would get a 5* review from me.
