Edit ‘Children Display’ Macro to avoid restricted pages


Some of our Confluences pages are still in progress so viewing and editing are restricted. However those pages are displayed in the Children macro used in the main page. This is not desirable so how to avoid it?

How to hide the restricted pages in a Children Display Macro please?

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi @Maria Garcia 

Confluence will show you all pages that you are allowed to see. 

This means that you will also see the pages that are restricted, however other users that are not allowed to see the page won't see it in the Children Macro. 

If you really don't want see the pages yourserlf you will have to replace them to somewhere out of that page tree



Thanks a lot!

Hi @Maria Garcia,

Welcome to the community!

To answer your question: Restricted pages only show up to those users who have the permissions to view the page. Users without the view permission won't see the page listed in the page tree or the Children macro.

Kind regards,
