Table of Contents doesn't display links anymore

When a header contains a link the table of contents macro no longer displays the link color change or allows you to click to follow the link from the table of contents.

Version 2.5.10 had the functinality but newer versions do not. Does anyone know if this can be changed back to previous functionality through CSS or something?

Here are pictures of same part of a page on different versions:

Since this is the desired new behavior and nobody could provide any CSS to adapt it to what we need we were forced to manually recreate ToC behavior by using multiple Anchor macros.

No big deal.


did you used any customized plugin.

if yes please disabled all the plugins and check out once you will get idea why its not working.

This happens on a fresh install with no additional plugins. I believe it is related to the recent updates made to the Table of Contents macro:

They fixed these issues which looks like they could be relevant:
