Can I get the popular tab in a normal Confluence page?

I am using 4.3 and the "Recently upgraded" macro doesn't seem to include the popular tab. There is a "Popular" macro but with a totally different content.

I would also thank if you can recommend any source code plugin that can be used as a starting point to develop this functionality.

The popular content macro is a part of the Usage Tracking Plugin

This plugin comes disabled by default with Confluence. You will have to enable this plugin from your Confluence Admin > Manage Add ons > Show System plugin menu.

You should then be able to visit the page you want to inset the popular content macro into and visit Insert > other Macros. Searcing for "popular" there should bring it up.

Hi Daniel, I am already using the popular content macro as mentioned in my question but unfortunately it doesn't show the same content as the popular tab. I am using Confluence 4.3.1

Digging a bit deeper it looks like there is a standing feature request for this behavior.

You are currently only able to use the popular macro as I have outlined above. Please add yourself as a watcher to this and vote on this issue to be notified when this functionality is added to Confluence I will attach your question to further improve the visibility of this issue to our development team.
