Navigation menu on Confluence


I have a document in Confluence that has headers and titles, which I would like to see in a left-hand side navigation menu identical to the one you get in Word.

Any idea how that can be done ?

You won't get one identical to Word, but there is a way to get close.  Use the "table of contents" macro.  It will automatically generate a tree from all the headers in a page.  It would not be hard to throw it into a two or three column layout on the left hand side.

Thanks Nic. I do have a table of contents and could stick it to the left, but I would need that table to be static. Both columns move when scrolling down, so the table is only visible when you are at the top of the document.

I guess I'm gonna have to make do with pages, then, but that's not as good and will be a lot of extra work.

Thanks again for your help. Have a great day, Nic.
