Page Index Macro

Add the Page Index macro to a page to create an alphabetical index of all pages in the current space.

This is a legacy macro, and does have some limitations, so it's not suitable for use in very large spaces. 

In small spaces, this macro can be useful for providing a directory of pages, such as:

  • project pages
  • knowledge base articles
  • process and procedure pages.

Add this macro to your page

To add the Page Index macro to a page:

You can then publish your page to see the macro in action.

Limitations

The Page Index macro can be quite memory hungry in large spaces.  To prevent it causing out of memory errors in your site, we:

  • don't show page excerpts when there are more than 200 pages in the space, 
  • don't list any pages if there are more than 5000 in the space. This limit is configurable. System Administrators can use the page.index.macro.max.pages system property to reduce the number of pages displayed.

Change the macro parameters

This macro has no parameters.
