Hmm. Ours does not, although this may be because we are using a Refined Wiki custom template. Does anyone know the variable?
And if were to learn the variable, how would you display that on a page? I'm assuming some kind of user macro? Any quick help on how that would work? Not a dev here.
I got this all figured out for you.
## Macro title: Confluence Version ## Macro has a body: N ## Body processing: No macro body ## ## Developed by: Steven Behnke ## Date created: 28/Aug/2014 ## Installed by: ## @noparams <p>Confluence $generalUtil.versionNumber</p>
I did this by locating the footer-content.vm file. This is the template written in Velocity that Confluence uses to render the footer of course. This file is locted in ../decorators/includes/footer-content.vm
Inside that file (opened it in a text editor) I simply used the Find function to find 'version' and found this:
<ul id="poweredby"> <li class="noprint">$action.getText('powered.by.atlassian.confluence', [$action.getText('url.atlassian.software.confluence.footer'), "<span id='footer-build-information'>$generalUtil.versionNumber</span>", $action.getText('url.enterprise.wiki.footer') ])</li> <li class="print-only">$action.getText('printed.by.atlassian.confluence',["$generalUtil.versionNumber"])</li> <li class="noprint"><a href="$action.getText('url.bug.feature.request')" class="hover-footer-link">$action.getText('bug.feature.request')</a></li> <li class="noprint"><a href="$action.getText('url.footer.atlassian.news')" class="hover-footer-link">$action.getText('footer.atlassian.news')</a></li> </ul>
line holds the version of the installation. Calling this in a User Macro (which supports velocity) should just work. So I added a simple, no parameter, no body user macro (doesn't get more simple than this) and added the line. To keep it clean, I put it in a p tag and added Confluence before.
