Confluence: Page Tree Macro for another space

R Donato Apr 02, 2015


I want to use the Page Tree Macro in one space to list the pages in another space. Unfortunately, even though I specify the space I want to use, the macro doesn't recognize the page I want for the top level.

In the images, you can see that I've specified the Root Page and the Restrict to this Space Key.

  • For Root Page: I started typing and the page I was looking up displayed in the list, so I selected it.
  • For Restrict to this Space Key: I entered the name and the Space Key displayed as it should and I selected it.

Yet, I get an error message. Does anyone know how I can get this to work?

Turns out the solution to my problem is to use the Children Display macro instead of using either Table of Contents macros.

Remove the 80: from the beginning of the Root Page and then set the space key. Not sure why it puts the space key in the Root Page field when it has a field for the space. Probably a bug.

It's moving in the right direction, but it still doesn't work. I removed the '80:'

In Preview mode, the tree displays.


But after saving the layout, the Loading wheel begins and doesn't resolve.

I removed the Expand All option, hoping that making the macro as simple as possible would fix it without effect. I also tried both macro versions of the page tree. Neither work.


Any other suggestions? It's so close to working. I'm on 5.6.1. Could it be a bug in that version?
