How to apply labels to a page tree

Hi folks - it seems to me that I've seen a plugin or macro that allows one to apply a label or labels to an entire tree of pages. But I've been searching in the Plugins site to no avail.

Did I just dream this up?

Hallo Dave

I haven't tried that plugin, nor seen one with the exact solution that you describe. But I do have an idea for a workaround. You could add a page that contains just the {pagetree} macro, limited to the relevant parent page and children. Then you could add the label(s) to that page.

Does that help at all?

Cheers, Sarah

Thanks Sarah - that's a simple idea that will help to some extent.

I think it was this that I was remembering. So now I have a somewhat different question:

Is anyone out there successfully using this plugin with a recent version of Confluence? (3.2+)

That's exactly the plugin I was about to point you at. I've tried installing it in Confluence 3.4.9 and it was not a happy bunny at all

Another option would be to use the Checklist Plugin from Comalatech. Here's an example of setting up a list of children under a parent and you can select/deselect labels (this could be done on a separate scratch wiki).


You could do it with Label Manager for Confluence plug in.
You could search for similar labels in a space and then merge them into one standard label.
You could also do bulk operations like appending , adding and removing labels.
