Is it possible to use Excerpt-include to pull from entire space?

Barbara T Dec 12, 2016

We have 15+ program pages linked on a wiki space.

Is there a way to use the Excerpt include on one page to pull from all Excerpts from every page in that space (instead of creating an entry for every program)? This will help keep things clean and avoid having to remove programs on multiple pages when they are "complete".

You have to build a one-to-one connection with the excerpt macro. You can have multiple on one page to pull content from several pages, but there is no way to do wildcarding or label filter to have just one instance of the macro to pull from pages that match.

As a follow up, there is the MultiExcerptMacro that can pull content from multiple pages, and from multiple locations on the same page. But you will need to insert them in a one-to-one connection, source to (one or more) destination(s).

I use it extensively, and it shows available for the cloud.

The projectdoc Toolbox provides 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.

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 and not available for cloud (sorry I have seen this tag too late ... sad). I'm one of the authors.

It won't give you the same layout as the Excerpt macro, but the Page Properties macros might work.

Alternatively, you would need to have someone develop a custom macro for you to do this.
