I am using the Child Display Macro to list all the child pages on the parent page like a table of contents. The option to sort the child page according to the Macro documentation are by Creation, Title, Modified. It also states that the default is Manual if manual is selected. I can't see where i can select manual.
For now I have chosen to sort by Creation which is working for now as I am creating theses page in the order I wont them, but if I ever want to go back and create another page that I want to show higher up on the list then how is this done?
If I leave the Sort by option blank, assuming this is the default, it automatically orders them Alphabetically which i don't want because the pages need to be ordered in a specific way ie, the pages deal with the use of a piece of software and each page explores the software in more deeper detail as the ready progress through the different pages.
Thanks in advance
pages in Confluence are ordered alphabetically by default. You can change this alphabetical order by clicking "Reorder pages" on the bottom of the left sidebar:
There you can manually change the order of your pages by dragging and dropping them to the right position.
Thanks for the quick reply. I have reordered the page as you described but this does not translate to how it ordered in the Child Display Macro.
Pages ordered randomly to test you theory:
And this is how it shows up when i use the Child Display Macro:
This seems to show that the Reorder Page function does not effect how the Child Display Macro orders the Child paged when it displays them.
I was having a stupid moment. Your right. I forgot to change how the Child Display Macro sorts the pages. I set "Sort Children By" from creation to the default blank value and now the Child pages are ordered as I had set them under Space Tools > Reorder Pages.
Thanks very much Thomas. Two thumbs up.
