comment How to stop opening new window in browser with hyperref
To potential question closers: I don't think this question is off topic, even though the answer turns out to be "you can't do it". We should let the comments turn into answers as @egreg suggests.

comment tocloft recipe to simulate the titlecontents* behaviour of titletoc
@Martigan when I compile the example above using the thloria class, it compiles without error. So the error you are getting isn't caused directly by the class+titletoc. To solve this problem you'll need to gradually add packages to this example to see when things break.

comment tocloft recipe to simulate the titlecontents* behaviour of titletoc
@Martigan could you post a link to the class? Then we could possibly see what could be causing the error. (I'm assuming the error is what you get when you replace \documentclass{report} with your custom class in the example I added.)

comment tocloft recipe to simulate the titlecontents* behaviour of titletoc
I don't think this is very easy to do with tocloft at all. Perhaps you could explain the problems you encountered with titletoc? Maybe there are ways around them?

@Marco I think Martigan is assuming some familiarity with titletoc. I've added a MWE to make the question clearer.
