How can I prevent renderConfluenceMacro inserting new lines when it renders wiki markup?

Steve Goldberg Feb 01, 2012

I am currently rewriting my macros for COnfluence 4 compatibility (removing Wiki Markup) and I am having difficulty as when I try to use {{$action.getHelper().renderConfluenceMacro}} to process Wiki Markup, it puts the rendered Wiki Markup on a new line (i.e., in fresh <p> tags). This means, for instance, that I can't do in-line linking as I want to do something like the following:

## @noparams

<b>You must be logged into GitHub and have access to our repository to access these files.</b> For more information on GitHub, see the $action.getHelper().renderConfluenceMacro("[Developer Guidelines space|developertraining:How to get access to GitHub]").

However, that just causes it to line break.

Suggestions on how to get aroun this would be appreciated.

Don't use $action.getHelper().renderConfluenceMacro():

Do something similar to this:
