Confluence Plugins

Navitabs Plugin

This plugin provides a very simple solution which allows users to navigate between pages. It generates horizontal or vertical navigation tabs that look just like the tabs in Confluence.

The navitabs macro provides the following modes of which only one can be active at a time:

  • Children (Default): generates tabs for all child-pages of current/specified page.
  • Labels: generates tabs based on the specified labels.

If you want the navitabs on the child-pages as well, place the following wiki syntax on every child-pages:

Display the tabs vertically with the page content in the macro body:

{navitabs:vertical=true|root=Home|includeroot=true|firsttab=Home}Write the actual content of the page here...{navitabs}

Generate tabs of pages containing the label cats or dogs from the space animals:


Localtab Group and Localtab

With the Localtab Group and the Localtab macros, content of a Confluence page can be arranged as tabs.

The Localtab Group and the Localtab macros can only be used together.
