I have noticed that whenever I create a new Confluence page from a template, the system will create a default page title. The page title is not unique, and is very odd. For example, I see a page title like this: ", Project Description, Functional Requirements" for one template. Then, I see the following title for another template: ", Functional Requirements, Performance, Usability, Business Continuity, Business Rule, Conversion, Training, User Documentation, User Interfaces, User Documentation".
I have tried changing the heading levels in my templates. But I can't seem to find the pattern for creating the page title.
I would like to either:
Any ideas out there on this?
Thanks for your feedback. At the moment, it is not possible to configure the default title for your template.
In Confluence 5.1 (coming in a few weeks) we will ship with a "Create from template" macro. Future versions of this macro will allow you to pre-configure the page template title with some variables (E.g Space key, currentDate etc..) which will help you create more unique page titles and standardise them.
Does this help you solve your problem?
Looking forward to this feature... we could have used it today. :-)
When considering variables, for the page title, please try to accommodate custom variables (not just a pre-determined list like space key & today's date, though including those in the title & page would be useful). For example, the template we created today would work best with a title like
$Year-$Month Monthly Leadership Update for $Service
where $Year, $Month, and $Service variables would be lists (i.e., choice lists). Also note that we don't always want today's date in the title – e.g., the user may want to use the template to make a page for last month's report.
+1 for configurable page titles - but please allow them to be configurable enough to add a prefix and sequence number.
For example, if creating a product requirement using the blueprint, it would be great to configure a three letter acronum and e.g. a four digit sequence number.
The space key on its own isnt enough as this is for the project but each document type would need it's own identifying key.
