[CONFLUENCE] Is there some Velocity code I can use to check whether a page has children?

I have a macro I'm writing that would be improved by a conditional that will execute code based on whether a page has children. Does anybody know how to do this?

If you have a page object you can call:

#if($page.hasChildren())
    ## do some magic
#end

See the page API documentation for more information.

Hope this helps

I see that you can use .hasChildren but $page.hasChildren() did nothing. After some poking around, I found that $content.hasChildren() works just fine.

Thanks Remo!
