Page titles - ignore part of the title in the (automatic) menu

Dear Confluence experts,

We are currently building a wiki on tropical diseases on Confluence. In our wiki, we often have the same page titles (treatment, diagnosis, etc.). These off course therefore are recurring title pages. Up until now, we used Scroll Versions to be able to use double page titles, but ran into problems of incompatibility with our chosen theme plugin (Brikit). Therefore, we are looking for another solution.

We want to implement titles like this: "Malaria - treatment" and "Dengue - treatment" to do away with double page titles. However in our main navigation on the left, we want the part before the "-" (and a space thereafter) to be hidden because otherwise the menu becomes to elaborate, and the first part will be repeated throughout the menu. Is this possible somehow with standard confluence features (or a plugin?), or does this require custom development? If custom dev., what would be the best way to implement this?

Thank you,

This widget could not be displayed.

There's no way to do this, Confluence relies on the whole page title.

If you're having problems with Brikit, I'd look at other options for theming instead - write your own or move to one of the other two theming engines.
