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

The best table of content WordPress Plugin. Extremely highly custmizable. The only one that recognizes pagination. Also, the technical support team is very efficient and knowlegable. After researching for months, CM table of contents plugin was the solution. I highly recommend it to anyone who has complicated post structure or long posts and wants a perfect table of contents plugin.

I was looking for a table of contents plugin that was smart enough to accommodate a variety of knowledge base style posts and this one fit the bill. There were a few technical glitches in the first try but the support team was exceptionally responsive and listened and acted very quickly to my needs. In addition to the basic functionality, it also provides great styling options and the ability to be used in the body of the text as well as in widget areas. I would recommend going for the premium version as it offers more functionality for a reasonable price.

This is a simple, but powerful and smart plugin! Unlike the others, they are too simple and not useful as this one. It detects the headers by itself, and make it anywhere as we wanted! However, multilingual supported will be much appreciated. I have a 3 languages site, and using Polylang. If we could change the text of "The Table of Content" in different language, it will be much much appreciated.!
