How to make Pagetree macro centered

On my title page, I want the following items to be centered: the heading, some text, a Livesearch macro, and a Pagetree macro.

When I display the page, it's all centred nicely, for a split second. Then, the Pagetree macro jumps to the left. The rest of the content stays centered.

I've tried these ways of forcing centering via editing the wiki markup:

  • <div align="center"> </div> around all of the content 
  • style="text-align: center;" in each element 
  • Both the div and the style

None works. Any advice?

You can do it with the Div macro:

Put the Page Tree macro in the body and add 

margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; width: 18em

to the Styles field. You can play with the nem amount to control line wrap.

Thanks Milo

Unfortunately the Confluence administrator won't let us use the HTML macro, which I think would let me use the Div macro.

The Div macro is its own thing, is pre-installed and turned on by default in both Cloud and Server, and has nothing to do with the HTML macro.

It is not pre-installed in server actually. It's part of Adaptavist Content Formatting Macro's I believe. 

That happens to be currently pre-installed in Cloud however.

Thanks Steven - that must be why I don't see it.

In addition, I wonder if it actually would work, given what you said about the Pagetree macro including a block element.

I stand corrected (the Content Formatting Macros are just so useful). Regardless, I actually tried it before I posted the answer to make sure it worked:

Sweet! Yeah, that must override the nature of the block div by forcing margins and width.

Melanie, the content formatting macros are Free/Paid. The Div/Style macros are included under the FREE macros. Just a thought! 

Thanks, Milo!  This worked great for me on the server 5.8 version...and I used it with the pagetreesearch macro.

The plugin is wrapped in a DIV which is a block element. It occupies the entire space given to it and thus cannot just be "justified."

I don't really see an easy way to change that behavior.
