How to link to Space home in User Macro?

This macro lets you enter a page name, and prints "This is the <Page Name> page in the <Space Name> space"

## @param PageToInclude:title=Page to Include|type=confluence-content|required=true|desc=To specify a page in a different space, use SPACEKEY:Page Title.

#if ( $paramPageToInclude.indexOf(":") == -1 )
  #set ( $spaceKey = $space.key )
  #set ( $contentTitle = $paramPageToInclude)
#else
  #foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
    #set ( $spaceKey = $part )
    #break
  #end
  #foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
    #set ( $contentTitle = $part )
  #end
#end


<br>
This is the
<ac:link>
    <ri:page ri:content-title="$!contentTitle" ri:space-key="$spaceKey"/> $!contentTitle
</ac:link>
page in the
     $spaceManager.getSpace($spaceKey).getName()
space.

The <PageName> line is a link to the page, and it works. The <SpaceName> displays the name of the space correctly. But when I try to make the <SpaceName> line into a link, like this:

<ac:link>
    <ri:page ri:content-title=$spaceManager.getSpace($spaceKey).getName()>
</ac:link>

...it doesn't show the full name. For instance, it says "Testing" instead of the correct name, "Testing Space", and of course the link it creates is dead.

Confluence and Velocity don't have a built in way of linking to a page without showing the page name. Therefore, you have to build the link yourself:

## @param PageToInclude:title=Page to Include|type=confluence-content|required=true|desc=To specify a page in a different space, use SPACEKEY:Page Title.

#if ( $paramPageToInclude.indexOf(":") == -1 )
#set ( $spaceKey = $space.key )
#set ( $contentTitle = $paramPageToInclude)
#else
#foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
#set ( $spaceKey = $part )
#break
#end
#foreach ( $part in $paramPageToInclude.split(":") )
#set ( $contentTitle = $part )
#end
#end
#set ( $linkSpace = $spaceManager.getSpace($spaceKey) )

<p> </p>
<p> This is the
<ac:link>
<ri:page ri:content-title="$!contentTitle" ri:space-key="$spaceKey"/>
</ac:link>
page in the
<a href="$linkSpace.homePage.urlPath"> $linkSpace.name </a>
space.
</p>

That works. Thanks!

One question: What's the difference between ".name" (which you used) and ".getname" (which I had used)?

Hi Shawn,

It's exactly the same. Velocity has a name-shortening shortcut built in, so if you have a procedure with no parameters (like .getName()) then you can refer to it without the get and make the first capital letter small (.name) and it will refer to the same thing.
