Confluence has been upgraded! is now a read-only repository. It will be permanently decommissioned on December 15, 2019. Visit UVA's new instance of Confluence to create new wikis or modify existing content.

Texts are built in a data tree structure. To guide you through the structure, we'll slowly build a table of contents that represents the text. 

To begin a text, start with your first page. This page contains all the metadata for your text. Learn how to begin a text. Remember, every text needs to be in a collection

Main Title <---- First page

Once you've created your first page, you can add sections to that first page by inserting more pages: these are child pages of the section. In the example below, we've added three pages (Introduction, Section A, and Conclusion) to the Main Title page. Learn how to add sections to texts. 

Main Title 

    • Introduction <--- page inserted into "Main Title"
    • Section A  <--- page inserted into "Main Title"
    • Conclusion  <--- page inserted into "Main Title"

What happens if you want subsections on a certain page, say Section A? Just add more 'child pages' under Section A, in the same way you inserted Section A into the Main Title


Main Title

    • Introduction
    • Section A
      • Subsection 1A <--- page inserted into Section A
      • Subsection 2A <— page inserted into Section A
    • Conclusion

You can continue building your text this way indefinitely. This can give you complex structures, like the partial table of contents below from a real example. Remember: you can only have one main, top-level page.

  1. Now: Create a collection> add a text. Not sure if that changes the workflow described on this page.
