Excerpt-include across space boundaries

Hi Folks,

another detailquestion - did I miss something or is it not possible to "excerpt-include" from pages outside the current space ? Any workaround except for creating a user proxymacro ?

Hi Josch,

Unfortunately, no you didn't miss anything and it's an open feature request at

What you could do is create a page in the same space as the page with the excerpt on it, use {excerpt-include} to include the excerpt on that page and then use the {include} macro on the page that you want the excerpt included on in the separate space. It's cludgy, but the {include} macro does work across Spaces.

Alternatively, would a straight {include} of an entire page work for you? If you have lots of excerpts that you want to re-use is it worth looking at re-working your content so the excerpts are indivual pages and you assemble full pages from them as required? That way you won't be affected by the {excerpt-include} limitation and could reuse content wherever it was needed irrespective of Spaces.


Hi Andrew, I had feared that. I currently use the proxy-approach like you described. Thanks for the link to vote for :)


Perhaps prefixing the page name with the spacekey and colon does work...

nope, tried that :(

I just followed the below suggestion here and was able to do the excerpt include to different space.
