Link in a page body to "edit" one of the child pages

  • Confluence 5.x
  • have a tree of pages
  • would like to add a link on a parent level that would open one of the children in "edit" view
  • vaguely remember that one of the plugins was able to do it
    • was it Customware linking plugin? "link-to"?

default link is smth like pages/editpage.action?pageId=11111111, with no way to submit the page name.

any other solutions?

further details - this will be driven by a run macro, so the system will know which page name to edit at runtime.

example - select "NY" from a dropdown + "Run" : some NY-specific content is shown on a page (+"NY" JIRA filter and some such) + a "NY" child page will be {included}. So I'd like to put "Edit" button next to an {include} to help people edit the right child page.

hope it makes a bit more sense now

If there isn't a plugin to do it, I would probably write a macro. Just get the URLs of the child pages and iterate over them and change the URL to be "editpage.action?pageId=42", where 42 is the page ID.
