Page Index Macro: Is there a way to turn off displaying the excerpt?


3 answers


I've created an index page. The only thing I want to change is to turn off displaying the excerpt information. Is there a way to remove that? When I click on the macro, there's not way turn that feature off.

I've looked for another macro that works similarly. But I haven't found anything.

Can you take a screenshot of what you're referring to? I am not certain of what you're talking about.

Sure, here is the image.

When I add the Page Index macro to a page, the image below is what displays. Is it possible to configure the Page Index macro to hide the excerpted information? That information is required for other pages so I can't removed the excerpted content from the original page. The excerpted info makes the index page significantly longer than I want it to be.

Well there isn't an option and I doubt you want to customize the add-on JAR so we can do a little Confluence customizing instead.

  • Navigate to: Confluence → Confluence Admin → Look and Feel → Stylesheet
  • Press Edit
  • Add the following code to the stylesheet:

    td .smalltext {
        display: none;

This should do the trick. smile This will look for TD elements, and then look for a .smalltext class in those TD elements. If they exist, they will be hidden. I haven't seen any negative behavior yet but I will keep poking around as I am not sure if anything else uses the specific order of "td .smalltext"
