Child Counter Supplier

This page is only applicable for the Server version.


Overview

Provides access to the current and next counter for the number of children added to a page in Confluence.

To avoid counting children on pages that don't care, by default child pages are not counted. Once you request child-counter:next, it will start counting from that point onwards.

You can control if it is enabled/disabled/reset the number using the Child Counter Status macro from the Linking plugin.

Examples


Fixed Name with the count as a postfix

In this case, we will have every child having the exact same name, other than a unique 3-digit number at the end.

{add-page:name=Child Page %child-counter:next > number:000%}Add 'Child Page {report-info:child-counter:next}'{add-page}

User-supplied name with number prefix

In this case, we will add "(X)" at the beginning of whatever the user provides as a page name, where 'X' is the next child counter value.

{add-page-form:prefix=(%child-counter:next%) }Add Page{add-page-form}
