Searchability within a page or findability of content within tabs

Hi everyone,

I'm using the UI tabs and UI Expand macros (on Server 7.3.2). They work great for organizing content, but there is an issue with performing searches. If someone searches for info that is on one of the tabs, the search link only brings them to the page's default tab, so you won't know which tab actually has the info you're looking for. We can use Ctrl+F on the page, but if the content is in a closed tab, no results are found. 

Is there anyway we can have people search on Wiki but show them precisely the tab(s) on which their search terms are found?

Hi @Pamela Soh ,

Unfortunately I only saw your entry now. And I have no solution, how you can handle that with the standard confluence search.

But i tested it with our solution "iFinder Confluence Search" and it works. Maybe you and your team looking for a better search anyway.  iFinder Confluence Search is available at Atlassian Marketplace. and you can start directly with a trial.

Our article in the Atlassian community will give you more information. If you like a demo first, please contact us at

Best regards
