Again, my knowledge of the inner workings of Confluence is very limited, so a basic explanation would be amazing!! Thanks for your time.

Hi Brandon, the "page tree search" macro could be used to display some of the search hits from inside the EXPAND blocks on a seperate page - but when clicking on the header you get redirected to the original page with all of the items folded...

Same problem here - a big alphabetically sorted topic list using EXPAND blocks - but no way to "search and unfold".
