Once the Favorite Pages app has been installed, you will see the star icon appears on the Confluence menu bar to the left side of the Search box.

Please give the app some time to collect information about the pages you visit most times. By default, the app is supplied with the pre-defined configuration that starts showing pages that you visited 10 or more times within the last week. The counting of page visits starts only after the app installation.

See the next sections for details:



Viewing Top Visited Pages

On the Confluence menu bar, click the star icon. The inline dialog appears. It is divided into two tabs, as follows:

  • Top Visited - shows up to 10 pages you visited most time within the defined time period.
  • Saved for later - shows up to 10 pages you saved for later recently.

For each page from the Top Visited list, you can view the following information:

  • Page name - name of the page you visited.
  • Space name - name of the space where this page is stored.
  • Counter - number of page visits within the defined time period.

To open a top visited page:

  1. Locate the page on the list and hover over it.
  2. Click the page name. The page opens in the same browser tab.



Pinning Pages on Top Visited List

The Favorite Pages app uses the page tracking mechanism which shows the dynamic list of Top Visited pages based on your latest page visits within the configured time period. For situations when you want to keep some specific page always at hand, you can pin it on the Top Visited list of pages.

  1. Open the inline dialog with the list of Top Visited pages.
  2. On the list, locate the page you want to pin.
  3. Click the Pin page  icon. The icon will change to the pinned.

From 1.1.0 version the app pins the page automatically when you set a hotkey.




Assigning Hotkeys to Top Visited Pages

The Favorite Pages app allows you to assign up to 10 hotkey combinations for the quick opening of specific Confluence pages. You can assign hotkeys to only locked pages. This ensures that the page will not disappear from the list of Top Visited pages after some time.
