Hi. I wonder how Excerpt works in Confluence.
I.e., if I create an excerpt on a page that holds Blog Post Macro. Then I include this excerpt on another page.
Will excerpt fetch the html rendered by the macro or the macro itself, which then will be rendered on
the page where excerpt is included?
In summary: The Excerpt Include macro will fetch the Blog Posts macro, and then render it independently on the page.The Excerpt Include macro does not fetch the static HTML from the source page.
In more detail: Let's say page A has the Excerpt macro, which includes the Blog Posts macro. And page B has the Excerpt Include macro.
Page A will display the results of the Blog Posts macro, at the time when page A is rendered, and every time afresh when page A is rendered.
Page B will also the most up-to-date results of the Blog Posts macro, at the time when page B is rendered, and every time afresh when page B is rendered. The display of the results on page B is not dependent on the display of the results on page A.
I hope this answers the question. :)
The Excerpt Macro, will be used to mark a part of a page's content for re-use. Defining an excerpt enables other macros, such as the Excerpt Include and Blog Posts macros, to display the marked content elsewhere.
You can only define one excerpt per page. In other words, you can only add the Excerpt macro once to a page.
The Excerpt Include macro is used to display 'excerpted' (that is, a segment of) content from one page in another.
Before you can use this macro, the excerpt must have been defined using the Excerpt macro. Note that you can have more than one Excerpt Include macro on a page (although you can have only one Excerpt macro on a page).
I hope this helps.
