How to create user macro checkbox for confluence?

I would like to create a user macro that is just a checkbox and not a task item on a confluence page. 


Does anyone have one already built somewhere that I can use? 


The only answer I found on this topic was here which is five years old and doesn't seem to work with version 6.15.1. Any information on this would be helpful.

edit: Please ignore the aforementioned, I found the problem & solution:

Can’t use contentPropertyManager anymore in user macro since 7.0.3

Thank you for the original macro, it has been very useful!
