Excerpt in Expand?


Is there a way to include the Excerpt macro within the Expand macro in the cloud version of Confluence?

Unfortunately, dragging and dropping, or copying/pasting does not work.

Hello Adam,

Welcome to Atlassian Community. It's nice to have you.

I've had similar issues with the Expand macro, and I raised a feature request for the new editor below for this function

Vote on the request and you will automatically be added to the list of watchers.

Let me know if you have any questions about that.



The linked issue is for including Expand macros inside tables and has been implemented.
I'm trying to use an Excerpt macro within an Expand macro or vice versa.


Is there an issue I can upvote for this functionality?

Like # people like this

this feature will definitely be good to have...

Another way to do this is like so: 

Create a Page


put /include page inside the expand.Screenshot 2022-12-02 125643.png

I just discovered a workaround for this. It would look like:

On the main page:
/excerpt (hidden: this can be anywhere on the page)


       /excerpt include (tied to the above excerpt inside the above expand if needed)


If excerpt needed on another page:


       /excerpt include (tied to the above excerpt inside the above expand if needed)

nice 💯 - thank you for the suggestion

I do have the same feature request. Creating solid, transparent content (user guide for example) definitely needs this nested include function. 

Here you can vote for the function:
