TOC on every page by default

Wanted to add this capability for those out there looking to unify page layouts within a space:

Goal here was to have a table of contents on every page in a given space, but this could be used to render any macro on pages in a given space.

* Navigate to a space, Browse > Space Admin

* In the Look & Feel Section > Layouts

* Page Layouts > Create custom

In velocity templates, you can call a Confluence macro using notation like this:

$helper.renderConfluenceMacro("{toc}")

Depending on where you want this to render determines where you place it. In my case, I wanted the toc to render above the main content section, so I put this after the metadata section but above the main-content section.

Hope this helps!

This might be a good "how to" article in the Confluence Knowledge Base space too.

But it doesn't work if you try to add it to all pages, see bug https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-14004
