Sidebar Search in a confluence Space Edited

Is it possible to have a sidebar search box within the space.


The space is pretty huge with a lots of pages. Hence the page tree is also bit complicated.

I believe a search bar above the page tree could be of huge help in this!!


Could this be attained with configuration in the look and feel?


Thanks in Advance!!

Hello Solomon, you can indeed do this.
We just have to add the Livesearch macro to the sidebar using Wiki markup.

{livesearch:spaceKey=all spaces|size=medium|placeholder=Search}

To enable for all spaces, add the line above into the Sidebar section of the Sidebar, header and footer admin page.

  • (ConfluenceBaseURL)/admin/custompagecontent.action

If you would like to add it to certain Spaces only, add it to the Sidebar, header and footer for that specific Space.

  • (ConfluenceBaseURL)/spaces/custompagecontent.action?key=<SPACEKEY>
  • Replace <SPACEKEY> with the Space key of the specific Space.

Hope that helps! :)
