Auto Create child pages with Macro Edited

I am trying to set up a macro that can automatically create child pages as a part of the template.  Is there a way to do that?


The goal is to have a page tree would look like this:

  • Community Events
    • 2019
      • Event 1
        • Topic Proposals
        • Schedule
        • Planning Meetings
      • Etc...

I would like to have a macro that creates the event and the subpages.  The event and subpages would have some template information on it as well, like a table for example.

Right now it is my intent to put a "Children Display" macro on the "Community Events" page and use a "Simple Excerpt Display".  Then put a small excerpt on the "Event" page with the date range and location.

However, if there is a way to automatically create a table on the Community Events page and sort by the event date (range) like this:

Event || Location || Dates || Links (To the child pages) || Notes (To be added later)

That would be ideal.

If there is any way to do this, I would appreciate some guidance.

Edit note * I've discovered that you can't have the same page name in a space?!  Soooo.  That's... "unfortunate".  I guess I need a suggestion for that too...
Maybe "Topic Proposals for $eventname", etc.


Thanks in advance!
