WHY can't several Confulence pages in the same space have the same name?
As much as I like Confluence this architectural decision just doesn't make any sense to me.
The only possible reason I can think of is so that it is easier to use page name auto-complete when you are specifying new parent page but even then - why can't they just show multiple pages that match the same template?
IMO it makes just as much sense as if Atlassian didn't allow to use the same word more than once on the same page.
Is this something that is planned to be changed in future versions?
Yes! Exactly.Well almost exactly. The company is K15t. www.k15t.com
Just googled to refresh my memory
he produt is Scroll Versions. Maybe a little expensive if all you are trying to do is have duplicate page titles (since it does so much more) but that is one of its features see blurb below:
If you have to anchor or link to a certain page and there are two pages with that title, then an anchor will not be possbile. But, This Plug-in will help: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.k15t.scroll.scroll-versions
