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.

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.
