How can I use variables in a page in Confluence please? For example I want to type "company" variable and have it insert my company name, address, city, state.
Can I have a list of variables for a space that all pages in the space can use ?
I'm not quite understanding what you mean by a variable. Do you mean that you would type 'company' and the values would change, depending on who you are (ie what company you work for?).
In either case, writing either a user macro or a plugin would probably be the way to go. If it's simply a text replacement, it looks like you already discovered the user macro. If it's a true variable, and pulls some data from LDAP, you can probably even do that in a user macro as well (you can access the user object, then try to get user properties), like this:
There's a good example here. Let us know more specifically what you want.
I think that the question can be explained as follows (this is also my question):
How might this be accomplished?
