How to add a drop down list to every page


I need to add a drop down list to the top of every page in Confluence where people can select from a list to indicate the sensitivity of the page (eg Sensitive, Staff in Confidence, Everyone etc).

I have looked at the current questions/answers and I can't see any easy answer to this.

Can anyone help me solve this simply?

Thank you

This is adding metadata to pages, outside the body of the page.  You'll need to find or write an add-on that inserts a new menu option and adds to the page properties.

OK thanks but I would want the item selected to be visible on each page

Your add-on should be able to read the current page setting and render that in the menu.  Might be a bit harder to get it on the page, but you could store it as a page property.
