Can I pull the title of a parent page into a child page title?

I would like to know if it is possible to pull a parent page title into a child page or multiple child page titles.

For example, our quality assurance pages contain the campaign name (highlighted in red below) followed by the stage of quality assurance.

I want to be able to insert some sort of variable that includes the parent title in the child page title, so in the child page title you would have something like this:

{parentTitle} - Campaign Details Page

Is this possible?

Hi Tom,

Have you considered the Create Page plugin from Adaptavist?  It's free and allows you to specify that the parent page title be pre-pended to a new page.

Just a thought. smile

You can use the add-page-form macro from Linking Plugin. It is a free plugin.


<ac:structured-macro ac:name="add-page-form">
          <ac:parameter ac:name="linkText">create</ac:parameter>
          <ac:parameter ac:name="prefix">%content:title%</ac:parameter>
          <ac:parameter ac:name="type">page</ac:parameter>





My apologies for re-opening an old Thread.  But is there an update option on how to pull my parent title to use as part of my child title?  These options are difficult to follow on how to update my current child/page hierarchy
