How to split a confluence page?

When I have a confluence page that is getting to large, how do I split it into smaller pages?


I am looking for an automated way to split the page at a given heading level, similar to what the word import function does.

Hi Martin,

Could you please elaborate your query in more detail. If you want an automatic splitter, I don't think there is such plugin.

Anyway, if you want to split a page due to perfromance issue (Confluence took a long time to save/edit a huge page) you could copy snippet of your page, create a new page (or child page) and paste it there.

In order to display both main page and its snippet into the same page you could use include page macro.

Hope it helps.

Hi Martin,

I think you have to do it manually:

  • Copy the whole page
  • remove the first parts of the copied page
  • rename the copied page

Best regards


You would need to write a small script using the Confluence Command Line Interface. Use getPageSource to a file, split the file based on your logic, then multiple storePage with some logic to figure out the title of each new page.

There is this plugin:

At the time of writing this, it's only compatible with Confluence 4.0 - 4.3.7 but it looks promising.
