Show content in the same page when we have two or more sections

Hi everyone,

I'm a starter in Confluence and I would like to build a page with two sections. On the left side, I want to insert links to another page and on the right side, I need to show the content link clicked on the left side.
I am using Confluence cloud and I would like to know how to show this on the same page.

Hi Caroline,

welcome to Confluence and to this community!

Unfortunately, I don't know any plugin or macro that is providing the functionality you mentioned. There's no thing like a "page within a page".

You could create a bunch of pages that would pretend to be one single page and each of these could import the content of another page and all of them would be linked to each other, but this could become an extremely complex structure - I wouldn't do that, to be honest.

So, sorry that I have no better answer for you.   

Hi Thomas, 

I really appreciated your attention, maybe I need to change my mind e to find another way to present my content.

But I'm not sure if I could express my self with properly, so I attached one print about an example (I found this at Confluence's blog) and I would like to structure it this way.

Thank you very much for your help.

What you are seeing there is the normal left-hand navigation. That shows all the pages in the space in their hierarchical order.

Hi Davin,


Thank you. 

I'm completely newbie, now I have a good starting point.

It sounds to me like what you would need to do is set up each of your content pages as two column layout. Then for your left column, you would create another page for that column with your links to all your content pages. Then on each content page, you would use the include page macro in the left column to bring in the links to the left column. It would look something like this.

Links Page


Content Page - Edit Mode


Content Page - View Mode

It is exactly what I need.

Thank you very much again!! I'm really happy :)
