CM Table of Contents (CMTOC) - Style - CSS Adjustments


CSS Adjustments 

You might need to further apply some css changes on the TOC style. Here is a short guide and few example you can use to make such changes

  1. You can always use the built-in browser "Inspect" feature to find out the exact class of the specific element you want to change 
  2. To apply a new CSS change or add a new one you need to have a place to apply custom css. It could be within your theme settings, adding it directly to your theme css file or by using an external plugin that  supports custom css

    You can also use custom CSS area in the plugin settings. You can find it by navigating to CM Table of Contents Pro → Settings → Table of Contents tab → Custom CSS section. You can put you CSS code to the Custom CSS area. Note: this option was introduced in version 1.5.3
  3. Some examples
    1. Changing the color or style of the title "Table of Contents" 

      .cmtoc_table_of_contents_description { color:  blue; font-weight: 900; } 
    2. Change the color of the list numbering

      .cmtoc_table_of_contents_table { color:  blue; }

TIP: Making your custom CSS priority with !important

If your custom CSS is not working and appearing crossed out, it means other rules have higher priority. 

You can set your rule as more important by adding the !important property. 

For example, this line

.cmtoc_table_of_contents_table { color:  blue; }
Would become this line
.cmtoc_table_of_contents_table { color:  blue; !important; }
