I am documenting an API and would like to get a clearer and more logical structure to my Confluence page. I will show what I mean with an example.
If I have this page hierarchy in Confluence:
The automatic URLs that Confluence create for me is as follows:
Space name: https://confluence.com/display/Space+Name/Home/
But what I am after is this, more logical structure (the difference is marked in bold)
Is it possible to get this structure?
Unfortunately, you can't really make one space into a child of another. I'm not sure if it could help you, but, there is a third-party plugin that might cater this requirement, which is the Metadata 2 Plugin. However, please note that the plugin is not supported by Atlassian.
Also, there is a Feature Request that could interest you: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-1411
I don't know of any way to get the hierarchy of page names into the URL structure, as you have shown in your question.
But it's possible to get your wiki to show the structure, even if it's not part of the URL. Have you tried using the Documentation theme on your Confluence space? That will give you a nice tree structure in the left-hand navigation panel, as you can see in this space for example:
You can also display the tree structure yourself, on any page, using the Page Tree macro:
To get your pages into the right logical position, you can either move them (Tools > Move) or drag and drop them in the space's Tree view (Browse > Pages > Tree).
I hope this helps.
