I am new to using Confluence and find the lack of an overview of the contents tree very frustrating?
All you are able to see is a very narrow slice of the contents tree. Quite frustrating when I am trying to tidy up what is there and put it into an order.
Thank you for the reply, yes it does provide an overview of the contents tree, but not in conjunction with viewing the page content.
Where the content of many of the pages is uncertain, the reorder function is limited in its scope because all it allows you to do is reorder pages.
Why do need to go to a separate function to reorder the pages, this should be possible on the main contents tree.
Disappointed by an application that seems to suggest so much more, but delivers less.
when you click "Configure sidebar" is the sidebar set to display the space content as "Child pages" or "Page tree"? Because what you are describing sounds like the "Child pages" setting. Please verify that for me. If your sidebar is set to "Page tree" I'm sorry that by default it will not be possible to further improve the system behavior.
What you could try is our app called "Space Admin for Confluence". It comes with an enhanced content browser for Confluence to enable to you really manage content across spaces in your instance and a simple "Expand" button to expand the whole page tree, see my attached screenshot:
unfortunately, the setting for the page tree affects every user. :/ But I guess every user will be happier with the "Page tree" setting anyway. I honestly never liked the "Child pages" setting for the same reasons as you.
And sorry if I confused you with bringing up a third-party app. The "space admin browser" is not a built-in feature of Confluence. It comes with our app Space Admin for Confluence. If you like you can try it on the Atlassian marketplace.
