Currently have one very long page on Confluence and it is now become difficult to maintain, find info, etc. for readers and the editor. This page has a Table of Contents (TOC) at the top of the page now.
We are thinking of taking good part of the contents from this page and move them into multiple child pages created under the main page. So it would be something like the following afterwards:
Product XYZ (aka main page; parent page)
-- Supported functionality (aka subpage; child page)
-- Service agreement
Now we still want the TOC at the top of the main page (i.e., parent page) for contents included in the subpages. Assuming once the TOC is generated, if a user is to click on a link (say for Pricing), the user would be redirected directly to the "Pricing" subpage.
Does anyone know how one go about creating the TOC on the main page which would support the contents on the child pages?
I am referring to the navigation pane on the left, AKA Space navigation sidebar.
I would think you can make what @Svenja has suggested work. If you were NOT on Cloud, I would propose writing a user macro, but that's out.
My suggestion is to just think outside the box a bit and just have a ToC on each page, and use the childred display macro on the top-level page (look at how Atlassian structures their documentation). Save yourself a lot of effort implementing somthing that few users will really use.
All to often, we try to replicate a printed doc structure in Confluence, but that does not make best use of a Wiki.
Hi @B Patel,
you could put a "Table of Content (TOC)"-macro on every page and include all TOCs via Excerpt Include.
Try the following
Repeat this with the other pages and you should have a fully linked TOC of all pages with all headings.
this worked perfectly for me. Created a excerpt on the child pages, dropped in the TOC macro. Went to the parent page and created 3 excerpt include macros (I've got 3 child pages) and removed the surrounding panel. It pretty much looks like a single TOC at the top of the parent page now with TOC within each child page for that specific page
