Multiple excerpts from one Confluence page?

Edited
We like the possibility of using excerpts (as described here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/excerpt-macro-148062.html ) to avoid duplicate content. However, we don't like the limit of one excerpt per page. Is there a plugin or workaround to solve this? Thank you!

Here are a couple add-ons that can do what you want.

Multi Excerpt (Paid)

Include Content (Free)

:( Include content is just for server. 

Another approach is to use Table Excerpt and Table Excerpt Include macros (Table Filter and Charts app) that can be used for multi-excerption within multiple pages and spaces searched by page names, page trees and labels.

Thanks Andrey !

 

I will give this a go and see if it helps.

If the solution proposed by Rafael does not meet your requirements, there are additional plugins available on the Atlassian Marketplace that support the multi-excerpt feature you may want to check out.

Biased alert: Since I am one of the authors of the projectdoc Toolbox, I have not tried any of the other add-ons by myself. :-)

Hello everyone,

As an alternative, please try our add-on Multiple Excerpts & Include Macros.

As name suggests, it allows adding multiple excerpts in a page which are identified by excerpt key.

You can then use 'Multiple Excerpts Include' macro to include defined excerpts in another page. This way, you can include as many excerpts as you need.

Hi Parva, what is the difference between the excerpts/excerpts include and multiple excerpts/multiple excerpts include macros? The only difference I've found by googling is that a page is limited to 1 excerpt, and the multiexcerpt is a workaround, however it looks like you can have more than one excerpt and excerpt include in a page, given that you can assign excerpt keys and call multiple on the same page. So I'm not sure what sets multiple excerpts apart from excerpts?

Hi Mahi,

What you could do is use a Script Macro from ScriptRunner for Confluence to build your own Excerpt Macro that does not include this restriction.

Let me know if you need help doing it.

Cheers,

Rafael

Hi Rafael, I would be interested in such a ScriptRunner Macro for multiple excerpts. As I have only very little SR experience I would be happy for some guidance. Thanks, Alexander

Hi Rafael,

 

do you believe that if I use script macro from script runner, it would able to mitigate the following problem I am facing?

-------------

I am pulling information from 2 separate pages (text paragraphs).

1 page will be a page excerpt entirely, and the other will be multiple text excerpts from page 2. (I will be using the multiple excerpt add-on for this)

 

my question is, can I select where the multiple text excerpts are to be included in the page excerpt?

or should I use individual text excerpts for individual paragraphs (from page 1) and then add the multiple individual text excerpts (from page 2) in between the paragraphs (from page 1), ie should I not excerpt the entire page (page 1) ?
