You can use the Table of Content Zone macro to mark out a section (zone) within the page from which to create a table of contents. You can style the headings as a flat list, and place the list of links at the top and bottom of the section or page, to provide navigation bars similar to web navigation.
Use the Table of Content Zone macro
To add the Table of Content Zone macro:
When editing, select from the toolbar
Find the macro by name and select it
Configure it as needed
You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar. Continue typing the name of the macro to filter the list.
To edit the Table of Content Zone macro:
Select the macro placeholder.
Select the Edit icon to open the configuration panel.
Configure the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.
Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.
You can also select the centered , medium-width , and full-width icons to adjust the width of some macros. Select the trashcan iconto remove the macro.
Parameters are options that you can set to control what and how content from the macro appears on the page.
If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, it will be listed below in brackets (example).
Specifies where in the zone the output list is displayed: top, bottom, or both, which encloses the page zone content.
Specifies the layout for the table of contents:
Display Section Numbering
Select to apply outline numbering to your headings, for example: 1.1, 1.2, 1.3.
Specifies the style of bullet point for each list item. You can use any valid CSS style. For example:
Sets the indent for a list output type, according to CSS quantities. Entering "10px" will successively indent list heading levels by 10px. For example, h1 headings will be indented 10px and h2 headings will be indented an additional 10px.
Only applies to the flat output type. Specifies the display style of the links. You can enter any of the following values:
Minimum Heading Level
Select the largest heading level to start your TOC list. For example, 2 will list h2, h3, and h4 headings, but will not include h1 headings.
Max Heading Level
Select the smallest heading level to include in the TOC. For example, 2 will list h1 and h2, but will not include h3 and below.
Filter the included headings according to specific criteria. You can use wildcard characters. See Sun's Regex documentation for examples of constructing regular expression strings.
Exclude headings according to specific criteria. You can use wildcard characters. See Sun's Regex documentation for examples of constructing regular expression strings.
By default, the TOC is set to print. If you clear this parameter, the TOC will not be visible when you print the page.
CSS Class Name
If you have a custom TOC in your CSS style sheet, you can use this parameter to output the TOC with the specified "class" attribute.
The examples are based on a page with the following headings:
Filtered Table of Contents
This example will filter all headings to include those that contain "Favorite", but will exclude any heading which ends with the word "Things". The list is styled with upper-case Roman numerals.
This example will filter all headings to render a flat list of "Unknowns" enclosed in square brackets.
Max Heading Level
Wiki markup example
Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.
Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.
Macro name: toc-zone
Macro body: Accepts rich text.
Due to an outstanding issue in the Table of Content Zone macro (CONF-10619), the Macro Browser's Refresh function does not render any parameter modifications. Currently, the rendering of parameter value modifications to the Table of Content Zone macro occurs only after the page is saved.
