Status macro is displaying differently in two different pages

Status macro is displaying differently in two different pages

In one of my old wiki page, status macro is being displayed as below,



On a new wiki page I newly created, status macro is being displayed as below,


How do I modify the way the status macro is displaying the status? So that I can have the same user experience in both my old and new pages

Hi @Binesh John ,

Thanks for posting.

I have just tried to replicate this one, I am getting the same behaviour as the later one.  I know it's new editor in my case.

Could you please check one thing - Is it legacy editor on the first occurrence and new editor in the second case? Please refer the article for shortcuts to add this macro in both cases -

Please check and let me know if that helps. 

Thank you @Suvradip Paul

Just now tried searching for difference between old and new editor and it looks like this this is the reason behind the differences I can see between the pages. One page is using old editor and other the new one.

Is it possible to convert a page from new editor to old editor and vice versa?

@Binesh John  - Please check this article, it says to contact support if legacy editor needs to be enabled -

Please let me know if it helps.

Hi @Binesh John ,

As an alternative, you can try our Handy Macros for Confluence. It has several macros in a bulk including Handy Status. It allows you to create custom status sets with many statuses that can be changed in the page view mode later on if necessary. It brings consistency to your Confluence pages as everyone can use the same status sets when necessary and the workflow will become easy to manage.
