I am attempting to use an expand macro inside another expand macro and according to this page, it is supposed to work. Anyone have a solution?
NOTE: I am attempting this on the new Confluence Blank page.
I'm a PM working on the new editor in Confluence Cloud. We're currently in the process of redesigning a new experience for the expand macro which will allow it to both nest and work seamlessly on any device.
We'll absolutely let you know once it's live!
Hi @Blue we recently released a new expand that also nests in table cells, however, it does not nest in other expands. You can read more about it here: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-discussions/Introducing-our-new-and-improved-expand/m-p/1250620#M6662%3Futm_source=atlcomm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=immediate_general_comment&utm_content=topic
@Avinoam Any update on this nested expand feature? I was using it in the old editor as recently as two weeks ago, but have since been forced to auto-update editors and it appears as though I've lost access to the immensely valuable nested expand. A response would be much appreciated!
The doc you referenced (Cloud version) is from 2017 -- it used to be possible to next expand macros.
I'm guessing that you have the new Confluence editor active on your site? If so, that's why you can't nest one expand macro inside another.
I'm not sure if that functionality will be brought back. Fingers crossed!
Thank you @Trevor Edwards for posing the question.
@Avinoam ...I am also wondering, in the absence of being able to nest within a nest, is there an alternative or better way of doing what I am attempting to do.
I would like to show "years" then to be able to expand that and show "months" and be able to expand each day of the month to show accomplishments of that day.
As you can imagine, the will become quite lengthy if not able to nest them.
Thank you in advance.
Why would you remove the ability to nest within nests it was by the far the single most useful feature confluence offered. The new UI change should only have been released if it actually added value. It does not you have made it look pretty but taken back critical functionality that made confluence a manageable space to log detailed workflows and documentation. The nests within nests also made embedding documents seamless without having pages that were 100 pages long.
@Avinoam you promised last year this was being worked on yet instead more than 6 month later posted about table functionality that is clunky and doesn't solve the core problem.
You guys are building a product for Product owners how could you forget to identify the problem you are trying to solve when you released these tables? My concern is without this feature confluence will be largely redundant for anything other than minor workflows or analysis.
