Displaying the latest page revison and the last update date

Hi,

I'm trying to create a user macro that displays the latest page version and the date the latest page was created. (Its part of a project to manage version control). I know the Change History macro exists but its too verbose.

I started to write a user macro as follows:

## Macro title: Page Version

## Macro has a body: N

## Body processing: No macro body

##

## Developed by: David Gibbons

## Date created: 09/12/2015

## Installed by:

 

## @noparams

<p>Confluence $generalUtil.versionNumber<p>

<p> Page Version $confPage.version</p>

<p> Page Version $confPage.versionComment<p>

 

When the macro runs it will display the current Confluence version but won't display the page version. Am I using the right variable or should I be using a different method,

 

Thanks,

 

Dave

Hi

$content

 is the variable which holds reference to your current page
## @noparams
&lt;p&gt;Confluence: $generalUtil.versionNumber&lt;p&gt;
&lt;p&gt; Page Version: $content.version&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt; Page Version comment: $content.versionComment&lt;/p&gt;
