Excerpt usage

The documentation explains how to place an excerpt section on pages. However, no where it shows how to use it; i.e. how to call it so that we can saving re-typing

Eh?  The docs I'm reading say how to use the pair of macros fine.  What are you reading?

Pretty easy, but a two-step process.

  1. Add the Excerpt macro on the page with the text you want to reuse
  2. Put the text you want in the body of the Exclude macro
  3. Put the Excerpt Include macro on the target page where you want to display the reused text

 

As the others said, but with links to v5.9 documentation (same process in others)

Source page: insert the <<Excerpt>> macro:  https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf59/excerpt-macro-792499102.html

Destination page: insert the <<Excerpt Include>> macro https://confluence.atlassian.com/conf59/excerpt-include-macro-792499101.html
