You can "cheat" with a "dummy tab" mechanism ...
you can consider a tab is just another page
so create a page with a title like "header tabs" set Restrictions so that everyone can view but only you can edit
Insert an <<Excerpt>> macro
in the <<Excerpt>> place a one-line table with a cell for each "tab"
Now create a page for each "tab"
at the top of each page use the <<Excerpt Include>> macro
Go back to your "header tabs" page
now make the text in each cell a link to the respective pages
.... that is what I have done here ...https://ideology.atlassian.net/wiki/x/AgBv
a bit of fiddling ... but it works like a tab and it is free to do :smile:
Great idea but i am kind of stuck at the 4th step
when I create a new page and select <<Excerpt include>> macro it takes me to point it to Page containing the excerpt. I am unable to find that page even though the header page is set to view by all. Any suggestions?
Like some of you, I've struggled to get this to work. Almost if I'm missing a step.
In the end, I've just inserted a link to the page (url) and this has suited my requirement.
You can of course create a table and add URLs (left to right as a view) as Rodney demonstrated.
It would be great if this thread could be updated - nothing for 4 years, and a useful feature without having to pay for yet another add on.
It would be great if you could elaborate.
Thank you for the idea Rodney,
Absolutely. It does frustrate me that most answers to questions start with; "There's a plug in for that...".
If I have a £ for each time I'd heard that......well!
I used URL links in a table eventually, and this worked well, so you inspired me to time a solution that worked for my scenario, so thanks again.
Adaptavista has a paid tabs macro. The rendering in the current browsers I have access to is not as a tab, but more of an indicator on a horizontal rule. The package includes a Horizontal Navigation Bar which looks identical (except it doesn't have the horizontal/vertical config), maybe there is some issue in my env.
Note that the TOC macro doesn't seem to work across the tab "pages" (use TOC Zone within the Tabs Page macro, works fine) and I'm not real thrilled with how the menu wraps when you shrink your browser window. Otherwise it works pretty well, keeps all the content on a single page and it's quick to move between the sections vs. opening new pages which can be slower.
It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
