Formula for links in cells to pages with same title as display column

I have a table. 100’s of rows. Each row in the table is also a page in my doc. The text in the table’s display column is the same as the title of the corresponding page. I do not want to have to go in and manually insert hyperlinks every time I add a new page. Is there a formula for this?

Great question. I don’t think there is an overt way to do it, but you might be able to piece together the URL by using the identifiers Coda uses internally to scaffold the doc structure. @Paul_Danyliuk might have some insights on this?

No, no insights, and honestly I don’t see how that could be a normal use of Coda.

Those 100s of sections pages are some sort of a wiki, and the table with 100 rows is an index? Tough luck, you’ll have to insert if not links then at least page identifiers yourself.

There technically could be a system grid listing all pages, but if you ever reference a system grid in your formula, the doc gets disabled by Coda staff very soon.

P.S. I have an idea how one can manually grab a list of all sections in the doc, but I’ll have to test it tomorrow

Thanks for getting back @Johg_Ananda and @Paul_Danyliuk.

My use case involves trying to never need the left sidebar. With this many pages, navigating via the page list is tedious. I’m looking for contextual shortcuts to relevant pages. I’m currently heavily relying on Subpages to do this, and it works, but another layer of nav would make it even better.

Let me know what comes of that test.
