I'm importing a 70-some page Word (.docx) file into Confluence (v4.1). Goal is to import the information, create new pages based on headings. That works.
Also need to maintain the organizational hierarchy / structure. That fails.
What happens: The import preview shows the correct hierarchical content structure. However, after the file is imported, the pages created are reorganized alphabetically.
We then need to drag-n-drop all pages created (~70) to restore the content hierarchical structure. Major pain.
Am I missing a configurable preference during import? Or is this a known issue?
Anyone have information to share?
P.S. Please don't advise using the Office Word Doc macro — we're trying to move our intranet to wiki-friendly formats, where all the right users can easily view and edit content in native wiki page format.
the issue is reported here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/OFFCONN-53
As a workaround you could try the following:
1. Create a new space
2. Create a new page (“Parent”) with two child pages (“Child1" and “Child2")
3. Click “Pages” to view all pages in the space.
4. On the Pages view click “Browse and reorder all pages” (in the top right corner of the screen)
5. Drag and drop “Child2” before “Child2” (that deactivates the alphabetical order.
6. IMPORTANT: Click the “Parent” page and on this page click Tools > Import Word document
7. Select your file and activate the option “Replace Parent”.
8. Import the Word file
9. Delete the pages from step 2.
As the alphabetically sort mechanism is deactivated due to step 5, the pages should be sorted correctly.
