Button for creating pages cannot be forced under another page

I have a tree with 3 sub pages. I want the home page to have a button to create a page under one of the sub pages but it only creates the new page under the parent page.

A - Home
 1 - Sub
 2 - Sub
 3 - Sub

I want the 3 buttons to live on A and each will tie to one of the sub pages.
If a user clicks on the button that says 2-Sub I want the page they create to live there. Instead they live under A - Home.

I have tried creating the buttons in the sub pages and showing them on the home page via the excerpt macro but that does not work.

Is there a way I can do this?

Hi @Ray DR

you can simply go to page "1 - Sub", create a sub page there, make a copy of the URL of the "New Page" and enter it as a link on page "A - Home".

The link must be something like "http://YOUR_URL/pages/createpage.action?spaceKey=~YOUR_SPACE&fromPageId=NUMBER_OF_PARENTPAGE


Hi Ray,

You can use the add-page macro from Linking Plugin, which is free.
