How to inject CurrentDate as pre-fix in page title?

I'm trying to create a corporate meeting template form scratch but can't find a way to inject CurrentDate as pre-fix in the page title? Just like the Default Meeting Notes Template does.

Not sure if you're looking into doing this a Confluence Blue Print, but if you are, there is some details on dynamic page titles with them

Thanks Colin, but I'm not a developer, so I was hoping for a Template solution. We have Scaffolding installed if that would be of any help.

Hi Ole,

I have a user-macro to do something very similar to what you want to achieve:

## @param pageTitle:title=Page Title|type=string|desc=description|required=true
#set($newTitle=$parampageTitle)
$content.setTitle($newTitle)

On the Confluence page I have two text-data fields 'Field1' and 'Field2' and my user-macro 'settitle' that reads the content of these text-data fields and deliver their values to the user-macro. The user macro sets the page title:

{text-data:name=Field1|atlassian-macro-output-type=BLOCK|type=line}{text-data}

{text-data:name=Field1|atlassian-macro-output-type=BLOCK|type=line}{text-data}

{settitle:pageTitle=%data:MyDate% - %data:MyTitle%}

You need the CustomWare Scaffolding plug-in to do that.

I hope that'll be helpful for you!

Good luck!

Stefan

Maybe this plugin will help. Haven't tried this out yet with current Confluence. I have used it with old version which worked nicely.
