On Confluence Server, can the sidebar link titles be edited?

Edited

In the sidebar of our Confluence space, the link titles of child pages are rather long as they reflect the actual child page titles. If the sidebar is expanded to more easily view the full child page titles, the main content area on the page is reduced. Is there a way to edit the child page link titles in the sidebar to reduce their length without actually changing the titles on the child pages? (This can be done using the Inspect tool, but any updates are only temporary and lost when the page is refreshed.) I'd appreciate any ideas on this. Thanks.

@Michael Furlan The delivered CSS should truncate/hide the page titles based on the size of the menu.  If you would like it to have a ... you could add your own custom CSS since you are on Confluence Server.  Can you share a screenshot of the issue if I am not completely understanding what you are describing.  

Hi Brant. The image below shows the left sidebar with a number of child pages listed and the main content area in which the parent page is displayed (currently redacted). Note that all pages include "Data and Analytics (D&A)" in their titles.  We would like to keep this in the titles of all the pages but have a shortened title containing only "D&A" in each of the child page links in the sidebar. I gather that this can be done through Space Tools - Look and Feel through which a style sheet can be accessed - is that correct? (I currently don't have Admin access and therefore don't see Look and Feel under Space Tools.) Thanks. Image_20230925.png

@Michael Furlan

If you are trying to remove Data and Analytics from the front of each link then you would have to delete it in the title of the page as you stated or add Custom CSS at the site level.  This would have to be done by a site admin.  The issue you would run into is the CSS would apply to all spaces so it could cause issues in other spaces if not properly constructed.  Even properly constructed you might not get the results that you want in the current space since you are trying to eliminate a specific text from the title which is contained on other pages that you would like it to remain on.  

Thanks for the thorough explanation, Brant. In light of the potential side effects that you described, it's likely that we'll pass on applying the CSS option in this particular case.
