As mentioned on the confluence page it's possible to use Confluence to create a Technical help documentation. I understand and know how to create a single page in Confluence. However I do not understand how I can create something like these companies have done: https://www.atlassian.com/blog/add-ons/5-real-life-examples-beautiful-technical-documentation
Could someone help me out please?
I would like to create a Treeview for public users to have the ability to navigate and browse through help documentation.
In short this is the current documentation for a tool I publicly share that people use. http://boomerlabs.com/vexus_dir/documentation/
I would like to move this documentation into something more clean and professional looking which would be confluence. But I'm not clear on how I would do that and make it so users have public access to browse the documentation.
Thanks, that helps.
Regarding the tree view, Confluence automatically puts the pages you create into a hierarchy. You can read about how to edit the hierarchy by moving and re-ordering pages here:
That said, if you're using the Cloud version, the page tree became pretty difficult for end-users to find when the UI was changed a couple months ago. Some users have requested the option to always show the page tree, and you can follow that request here:
Regarding public access, you can read more about setting it up here:
Hope some of this is helpful!
I'm not quite sure the page links you gave me help achieve what I'm after. Here is a live example of what I want to do. Create an online doc help where users can freely browse and view the help.
I noticed when I made my test project publicly accessible it doesn't display like the one in the link provided. With a treeview on the left and Read only access.
Are you using Cloud? Unfortunately, the page tree became pretty difficult for Cloud users to find when the UI was updated a couple months ago. You have to have the sidebar expanded (hover and drag right), and the page tree is not shown on the overview page anymore. Many users are frustrated about this, and the best place to follow and join the conversation is through this request:
Regarding public access, if you're seeing that anonymous users are able to edit pages, then you could start by going to Space Tools > Permissions to make sure that anonymous users only have permission to view.
Hope this is helpful,
