I have a question when I use excerpt macro in confluence page


I'm Hong who use Confluence 4.3.2

I use excerpt macro for sorting my contents by using contents by label macro.


I want to back up specific page display. (not export word or pdf file)


specific page revision (For example, befor 2013-Jan-5th page only display)

Because of contents by label macro property, I can see only latest page.

Question is

Can I see specific date page and copy it by using contents by macro?

Thanks for reading my question.

Hello Hong,

Let me see if I can clarify your point a bit.

You are attempting to backup a specific version of a page. This is made more difficult because the excerpt include macro always renders the most recent version of the excerpt. You are unable to get a true historcial version of the page, because the most recent except is always rendered in that container.

You are looking for a way to have the excerpt include macor be aware of previous historical versions of the content you are embedding in the page.

Is this your question? If so I don't think there is a current request for this improvement. I would be happy to file one on your behalf.
