Can I use page headers for navigation on the sidebar? Edited

I've been looking around for hours, but can't seem to find a way to do this in Confluence. Basically, I'm writing some infrastructure documentation for a small office network. It would consist of around 10 pages and I want to be able to break each page into sections using headers. Pretty standard.

However, I want to be able to display each page on the sidebar with each section of the page shown as child objects that would link to each of those sections. A good example of what I want to do can be found here and here

An example page named 'Server' would look like this:


  Some intro text

Hardware specifications

  Some text detailing the specs of the server

Operating system

  Some text describing the OS configuration and related info


  Some text describing services on the server



Then on the sidebar for this space you would see


  • Hardware specifications
  • Operating system
  • Services
  • ...


  • ...
  • ...



It wouldn't make sense for me to break all of these page sections up into child pages because some of them would be ridiculously short for an entire page and make for inefficient navigation and browsing. What I'm trying to do seems to be a common enough paradigm for documentation these days, I just can't for the life of me figure out how to do this in Confluence.
