Just to clarify are you asking about attaching multiple files to a page? Or are you trying to find some way to group attachments on a page into logical groupings ... similar to a folder stucture?

David , both scenarios goes with what i am trying to do . please provide guidance on both the scenarios .

If you are running Firefox or Chrome you can select multiple files and simply drag them onto your Confluence page to upload them all. If you are using Internet Explorer you will have to upload them one at a time using the upload form as Internet Explorer doesn't have the necessary features to allow for drag-drop functionality. As far as havingsome kind of folder structure within your attachments page that is not possible out of the box. You can give your attachments labels to categorize them, but you will still see them all on the attachments page. Clicking on a label will do a search and show you all of the documents that have that label ... that is about the closest I think you will get to being able to structure the attachments page.

Thank you for the answer David. Sincerely appreciated .

Uploading folders containing multiple subfolders, etc. to Confluence is a Herculean task. I wish there was a macro that created a new page and sub-page for every folder and subfolder on the fly, as I uploaded them.

It only takes a few lines of groovy code to recurse through files in a directory. Once you find a file of interest, then you can do whatever you want depending on your specific use case (add attachment or add a page) using the Confluence Command Line Interface.
