Does Confluence have a macro or plugin that allows you to post a listing of where an article is reference in other articles? I'd like to create a definitions/ acronym listing, and a "Where Used" capability similar to that found in MediaWiki would be useful to show where the terms are being used elsewhere in the library.
Not sure I totally understand what you are asking, but are you looking for a referring content macro? If so here is a user macro that will do that. If that is not what you are asking then sorry.
Update: Added title, show title, and hide on include parameters.
Macro Body Processing:
No macro body
This works great; thank you Davin! The only thing I'd like to see is a checkbox to hide the results from where the page is used as an include, or hide from view completely. I just used the Page Properties macro which has a Hide checkbox to keep it from appearing, and since the results are listed when editing the user macro, the report is just what I needed.
So I have a snippet that I use in an Include Page macro on another page, if that snippet page includes your Referrer Report user macro (as I call it), then the list of pages produced by the user macro also appears on the page using the Include Page macro. I would like the list of pages to NOT show up when the containing page is included elsewhere. I suppose I could put the snippet text into an Excerpt macro and use the Include Excerpt macro instead of the Include Page macro; it would just take time to redo all the reusable content.
Last I checked, there is an "incoming-links" macro as part of the Confluence Linking plugin: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/net.customware.confluence.plugin.linking/server/overview
Don't forget you need to get the free license from ServiceRocket before using it (you can find a link under "Documentation" on the Marketplace page).
No, not looking for incoming-links, but rather outgoing links. 'What links here?' is another term I've seen. For example, I could create a Wiki article titled "verification" where we define the term "verification". Other articles can reference the verification article in the body of the text. At the bottom of the "verification" article, you can add a "Where Used/What Links Here" macro that shows articles where "verification" was referenced. It's an interesting technique of threading articles together via a glossary. Especially useful for acronym listings.
The user macro I provided below will do what you want. It will show you referring links (pages that link to the current page). This will obviously only work for wiki links. Anything external to the wiki or links in the wiki created as "Web Links" won't show.
