If I can only add the Excerpt macro once to a page how can I extract more than one extract ?



I would like to extract more than just one extract from a page.

Is it possible?

If yes, how can I do that, please.

You can do this with an third party plugin from the marketplace: Multi Excerpt

You would need to get the multi excerpt macro. Though it works, it slows page loads down a lot. Also, when you update the original location information (source info), the destination information does change, but if you are watching the destination page, you will not be notified of the change though you will be able to see the new information on the page.




Thank you for your answer. In which version this macro is available, please?


Thank you

The projectdoc Toolbox provides macros to retrieve multiple excerpts from one or multiple pages.

  1. The Transclusion Macro transcludes one or more excerpts from one page (by ids or tags).
  2. The Transclude Documents Macro to run a query and transclude from the pages in the result set.

The macros to transclude from need to be either defined with the Section Macro or the Content Marker Macro. The pages need to be projectdoc documents which requires to have the Document Properties Marker Macro on the page.

Note that sections (fragments with a title) will automatically adjusted to the appropriate heading level (if you are using Confluence 5.8 and up). So if you transclude a section with heading at level 1 to a subsection with level 2, the section heading will render at level 3.

The tip Content Reuse on our website provides some more information on transclusion with the projectdoc Toolbox.

Please note that the projectdoc Toolbox is a commercial add-on available on the Atlassian Marketplace, only available for on-premise installations (no cloud).
