The Page Include macro allows you to include one or more pages onto a page. It is often used to combine pages into one big document while keeping structure in Confluence.
Numbered Headings works great in combination with page includes. Regardless of whether you use page or macro numbering, the behavior of the numbering remains the same.
When you view a parent page with numbering enabled, it also numbers the headings of included child pages.
Child pages that are included can also have numbering enabled. The parent page ignores the numbering of child pages and applies the options that you configured on the parent page.
Parent pages are the pages that contain the Page Include macro.
When you view a child page, the parent’s numbering format is not visible. You can enable numbering on the child page to have its headings numbered to view it outside of the parent page.
When included onto a parent page, the parent page ignores the numbering of the child page.
Child pages are the page that are included onto the parent page.
Table of Contents macro
Numbered Headings is compatible with the Table of Contents macro and uses the app’s numbering in the table of contents.
The Table of Contents macro scans the headings on the current Confluence page to create a table of contents based on those headings. This helps readers find their way around lengthy pages as the content structure is summarized and links to headings are given.
The Table of Contents macro has several options. One of the options is to enable Display Section Numbering.
When you use Numbered Headings on the page, you must ensure to disable Display Section Numbering to prevent double numbering.
