Folders do not exist. This is the workaround. It is kinda dumb and they should just make "Folders within spaces" a feature but... here ya go:
1. make sure your pages are in the hierarchy you want them:
1a. Navigate into the space you want to act as a file system and select the menu
1c. Click and drag these into the structure you want:
2. Use the instructions in the link below to add child-lists to your "Folder" documents so that you can view their child-"contents" with one click:
I agree with Stephen. If you want to use the term, effectively the Space is the "folder" and each page can act as a Parent to another set of pages creating a tree structure of "sub-folders", noting that you can set Page Restrictions for Viewing of the parent page (and by inheritance all its Child pages).
it is clear that Confluence is a set of web pages, not true folders so you need to change your thinking a tad
You need to view a parent page as a folder ... of course you can put whatever you want directly on that page as content/attachments. If it is just a bunch of documents/images that are kept in the "folder", then use the "Attachments" macro to list the documents directly on the page. Now the page looks like a folder.
But if you have child pages, they can become your contents of that parent page "folder" ... Then on the parent page you can simply put the "Children Display" macro or Page Tree macro (which has handy search and expand options)
Okay... but how? "every page also acts as a folder, so just create a page" doesn't work.
file lists come up just fine...
...This is exactly what I want.
but pages...don't show up at all in the first screen above.
I want them to naturally show up when I click into "Chicken Scratch"
Yes this can be done if you think about it a bit differently.
First a page is essentially a folder ...
On any particular page (folder) you can attach documents to that page (insert things into the folder) ... you cam manually insert a link or thumbnail to the attachments or even use the Attachments Macro to list all the attachments like an "index"
You can have "folders within folders" as child pages to a top parent page - the top parent page becomes the filing cabinet of sorts.
Or you can have a top parent page as the cabinet
.. a set of child pages as the drawers of the cabinet
..... and a set of grandchild pages to the child pages as folders within the draw within the cabinet
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
