Multiple excerpts on the same page

I am trying to create a global report with a lot of dynamic information from multiple people.  The problem I am running into is that I need to pull portions of pages from multiple confluence pages.  I know I can pull in a specific page, and I know I can pull in an except.  The problem is that I need to define and pull in portions of pages from all over the place (meaning pages all throughout confluence).  Anyone know how I can do this?

There is also the Multiple Excerpt macro (not free). That would allow you to pull in multiple bits from multiple pages.

Hi,

Why wouldn't just using excerpt-include work in your case? You just put the portion of text that you need from each page in an excerpt and then just pull them all in that global report page.

Because my understanding is that you can only have one excerpt macro per page.

You can have multiple page-include and excerpt-include macros on one page. Unfortunately, by default you can only have one excerpt macro per page. However the Multi Excerpt add-on allows you to define multiple excerpts per page. Another options as well is the Include Content By Label add-on.

Now that I think of it ... another thought would be the meta-data add-on. You can get "multi-excerpt like" functionality for free. However, it only supports plain text with in the body of the meta-data macro. So, no tables or fancy macros. But if you only need text then free is a good price. https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/org.andya.confluence.plugins.metadata

Sounds like the multi-excerpt is one piece I need to look at. Can the include content by label pull in only portions of a page?  Or does it pull in the whole page itself?

You can also do the equivalent using the metadata plugin, which I believe is still free (although it is unsupported, and I think you need to use wiki format for the text in the macro).
