Do you know how to freeze the headers when we scroll through a table in confluence

Headers are sticky by default. The following will cause them to stop being sticky:

Sticky table headings in view mode

In some instances table header rows will stick to the top when you're viewing a page, making those really long tables easier to read. There are a few exceptions though. Table headers aren't sticky when:

  • the space is using the documentation theme
  • your table is inside a page layout (columns and sections)
  • your table has no header row or there are cells in the top row that aren't marked as headers
  • your table has a header column, instead of a header row, and scrolls horizontally
  • your table is inside another table, or has another table inside, with its own header row
  • your table only has one column.

Milo,

Finding tables that had heading rows within tables that had heading rows and removing the heading rows fixed the problem for me.

Thanks for your post.

I just came across this, in my case it was row numbers. Removed them and then I got the sticky header.

There is an option to make table scrollable with fixed header in Table Filter.
