Adding Table of Contents inside Panel

Deleted user June 1, 2020

Previously with Confluence, you could insert a Panel into a page column/section and then you could add another macro into that panel - Eg. a Table of contents. 

Now, with the updated version, it looks like you can only add in text to a panel. And when trying to add in the TOC it automatically adds below the panel. 

Any help/ideas appreciated!

Hi @[deleted] ,

As far as I can see, you can't nest standard Confluence macros in the new Cloud editor.

I'm sad that this still isn't allowed in 2022 (soon to be 2023). 🫤

It's still not a feature in 2024, apparently - and I just realised you can't do this on Confluence Cloud.

Is there an issue for this on Atlassian's side of things we could track ourselves for progress updates?

TOCs w/o a panel w/ a headline look kind of broken to me - especially after the idea of a headline such as "On this page" on a panel which contains the TOC came from an Atlassian-talk years ago for Confluence Server (before Cloud was a thing).

Pls bring nesting for panels back. Thanks.

EDIT: Apparently, user macros are not a thing in Confluence Cloud, either. So there's no easy work around for this one, too (where you could add a "Card" user macro - w/o having to write a plugin or Forge app). I'm starting to wonder if Atlassian wants to make things more difficult for users on purpose...
