Navigation Map Macro

To add the Navigation Map macro to a page:

  2. Find and select the required macro.

Type { and the beginning of the macro name, to see a list of suggested macros. Details are in Using Autocomplete.

To edit an existing macro: Click the macro placeholder and choose Edit. A macro dialog window will open, where you can edit the parameters of the macro.

Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output. Where the parameter name used in Confluence storage format or wikimarkup is different to the label used in the macro browser, it will be listed below in brackets (example).






Specify the label associated with the pages you want to show in the navigation map.

This parameter is unnamed in storage format and wikimarkup.

Map Title


Specify a title for the navigation map.

Number of Cells Per Row



Specify the number of cells in a row

Cell Width (Pixels)

90 px

Specify the cell width

Cell Height (Pixels)

60 px

Specify the cell height

Navigation Map Theme
(theme )


Define a theme for the navmap.

If you want to create your own navmap 'look and feel' (for example, one with rounded corners), you need to add a customised navmap macro theme file to the WEB-INF/classes/templates/macros directory. The file name convention to use is navmap-mytheme.vm. Use the name of your choice for the mytheme part of the file name, which is also the value you use for this parameter. Hence, if your theme was called navmap-roundededges.vm, use the value of roundededges for this parameter.

The following examples are provided for advanced users who want to inspect or edit the underlying markup for a Confluence page. 

Macro name: navmap

Macro body: None.

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="navmap">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="wrapAfter">4</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="title">My map name</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="cellHeight">50px</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="theme">navmap-mytheme.vm</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="cellWidth">80px</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="">mylabel</ac:parameter>
{navmap:mylabel|wrapAfter=4|title=My map name|cellHeight=50px|theme=navmap-mytheme.vm|cellWidth=80px}
