Hi Hanis,

Thanks for the search.

It's a shame it is not conduct any further, because it was a handy plugin whit a nice feature...



What version of Confluence are you using? Can you confirm if you are actually referring to this macro?

Hi Hanis,

I'm using Confluence 4.3.7.

No, I'm referring to the macro include-random from include-random plugin.

It was pretty old and very interesting.


I'm not sure it is referenced in the marketplace, because it was found some years ago.


I found this: https://ffeathers.wordpress.com/tag/gadgets/. Looks like its an old plugin and not available for a later version of Confluence. At the moment, I can't find any other plugin that carry the same functionality either.
