Page Tree Search Macro

Using the Page Tree Search macro, you can add a search box to your Confluence page. When a viewer enters a search term, Confluence will search a hierarchy of pages starting from a specified parent (root) page and return the search results.

You can also add a search box as part of a dynamic page tree, which looks like a table of contents. See the Page Tree macro  .

Using the Page Tree Search macro

To add the Page Tree Search macro to a page:

  1. From the editor toolbar, choose Insert > Other Macros
  2. Find and select the required macro

Speed it up with autocomplete: Type and the beginning of the macro name, to see a list of suggested macros. In this example we're inserting the cheese macro.

To edit an existing macro: Click the macro placeholder and choose Edit. This will open the macro details, so you can edit the macro parameters.

Parameters

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).

Parameter

Default

Description

Name of Root Page
(root

none

The name of the root page whose hierarchy of pages will be searched by this macro. If this not specified, the root page is the current page.

Note: Unlike the Page Tree macro, the Page Tree Search macro does not accept the special values that start with an @ sign, such as @home or @self.

Wiki markup example

This example is useful when you want to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.

Macro name: pagetreesearch

Macro body: None.

{pagetreesearch:root=My page name}
