Link to parent

I'd like to include an automatic link back to the parent page in my template. I can see how to do this for children pages but not for parent page.

Surely this is possible? What am I missing?

You can make a simple user macro that will provide this functionality:



## @noparams
#contentLink2($content.getParent() false false)

You might add a HTML macro to a template with javascript code

Sounds great but we're on Confluence Cloud sad

Hi Matt,

I've been thinking about your problem for a while, and I decided to write a small connect plugin that displays a link to the parent page.  It's not 100% perfect yet (it still doesn't align text perfectly when the link is displayed in the same paragraph with other text), but if you would like to try it out, you can send me an e-mail at and I will send you a link to install it.
