    1) I have added a sidebar and set the format to sidebar-content-sidebar
    and I added the table of contents to the left sidebar via shortcode
    but the table of contents appears on the top of the page and I don’t have a sidebar.
    2) I tried to add the image below the H1 header as an icon but I don’t know how to add it as html. I added it as an image but then I guess that that is like adding any image to a post and I assume that an icon with be faster to load.

    Hi there,

    1. in the ToC plugin can you make sure it doesn’t have a setting to automatically add it your your post content?

    2. did you resolve this ?

    1. Yes, I did have it on auto insert which I have since canceled but my left sidebar is still not appearing. The content is in a widget – left sidebar which might not be the correct place.
    2. I didn’t resolve this. I just added an image. I would like it to look like the Avery sample site.

    1. Which ToC plugin are you using ?

    2. You should:

    a) add the image as the Featured Image.
    b) go to Customizer > Layout > Blog –> Featured images, select the Posts tab, and change the Location to Below Title

    Thanks for the response.
    1) TOC+. I can change if you have a better option. I only just installed it.
    2) In the demo the logo looked pretty and it was a SVG and not a PNG. How do I get it to look as nice as it did in the demo?

    1. This is the plugin we see most commonly used:

    2. So in the demo, they were added as inline SVG images to a GenerateBlocks Headline Block.
    If you select a Headline block you have the SVG HTML field on the Icons panel:

    You can add your own HTML – this article explains how:
