How can someone search a page with tabs, if keyword is on an unopened tab?

I'm testing the Content Formatting for Confluence plug-in, and I love the look of a page with tabs (using Tab Container and several Tabs Pages). Most of our employees have been using Ctrl + F to search for keywords on a page, but when they're not actually on the tab that has the keyword, the search results are useless. I don't know how to get around this. Search Box only searches Spaces. 

Help, please!

Hi @Kristin h 

Hi @dellagustin_sap 

Unfortunately I only saw your entry now. In your both cases our solution could be helpful for your and your colleagues. You can do very easy granular setting of filter, e.g. searching in a space. 

iFinder Confluence Search is available at Atlassian Marketplace and you can start directly with a trial.

Our article in the Atlassian community will give you more information. If you like a demo first, please contact us at

Best regards


I took a look at the articles but i don't see how this helps navigate to text within tabs. Can you explain?

I'd like to deliver my searcher directly to the tab which contains the text with a click.

I tried using the Page Tree Search macro.

It does find the content in non-selected tabs, but clicking the result does not select the tab where the content is.
