Limiting Sections Search Edited

We have setup one space with multiple sections.

Each section has specific info related to that section and is quite deep.

On each sections top level page we have put a search box.

I would like the search box to only look at pages that sit directly underneath the page that the search box is located on.

Is this possible in Confluence cloud?


I do know that you can limit the search to the space with @self and also use tags to limit searches but it would mean a lot of work and very strict rigour to ensure every single page in a section got tagged correctly

Im hoping more for a general "search child pages" function.

Have you tried the ‘Page Tree Search’ Macro?

Perfect James, thats exactly what I was looking for :)

I might be pushing my luck now but how can you centre it instead of it being aligned, its messing up my feng shui

Glad that helped. In regard to the layout, sorry, that's not easily done in Cloud - I don't know why this particular macro ignores text alignment in the editor, but its like this in the old and new editor alike.

No worries, thanks anyway, it was exactly what I was looking for.
