The cool thing about Table of Contents Plus is you can custom control each page and post with a shortcode. You don’t have to enter the code in “Text” mode, just enter the code in the normal “Visual” mode.

 

6. If you’ve enabled auto insert but you don’t want this page to have a table of content, you can use this shortcode.

7. If you’ve disabled auto insert but you want to have a table of content on a specific page, enter this code in the place you want the table of content to be shown. So the shortcode not only controls whether enable the table of content or not but also custom the position of the table.
