How do I merge or move a page to new parent page inside a Table Of Contents?


Page A - has a Parent Page with Table Of Content (visible only)


Page B - Is a Page with a Table Of Content (visible and 1,2,3)



I need to MOVE / MERGE 

                Page B Table of Contents to

                Page A Table of Contents

Page B should be a link on Page A TOC with sub menu links nestled in... TOC

And I should be able to see the additional content  (#1, #2, #3, etc.) from Page B in the new space /Page A.

[Ironically on PAGE A   , I do not see the links: STRIMM or ORACLE GOLDEN GATE. Only the TOC - How do I fix this?]

 I looked at EXCERPT MACRO - however I don't think this is answer since I need to delete the URL that host Page B.. 

What are the steps to do this? Should I copy/paste? Can you MERGE a TOC?

The table-of-content is supposed to give the reader a view of what is on the page and enable them to jump to a heading they're most interested in.  It's not supposed to be editable, it's supposed to be generated from the content.

To gt the contents of page B in page A's table of content, you'll need to move the content of B into page A.

I have 2 teams posting content in different spaces.

I now have admin rights for both spaces.

Team A publish their page with TOC only. Click each link and you see the details of it's associated page.

Team B published their page with content and has a TOC. When you view the page you see the content and TOC.

I need to take Team B page and turn it into a TOC link on Team A page within its TOC if possible. 

I am not sure if an EXCERPT MACRO works in this regard... Or if I MOVE Team B Page to Team A Page.

Do you know where I can find the answer or tips to figure this out? 

Yes, this will happen if you include (or include an excerpt of) Page B inside page A.  The toc in page A will see the headers in the content you include and render them as part of page A.

What I decided to do was to MOVE the entire contents of PAGE B (space) to PAGE A (space)...  [by default, this caused PAGE B to delete from the space it was created] and they are both nestled like bullet points:


Hierarchy Primary Space

- Architecture & POC's

    -Subject A

    -Subject B

- Meeting Agendas

- Project, Team and Requirements

   -Subject C

   -Subject D


I can work with this... and my next step is to get the table of contents to work from this to reorg Subject C and D to go (merge) with Subject A and B.  [Hopefully this helps someone else]. Any suggestions helpful.
