libraries of content in Confluence - are what and how?

Hello,

According to to the Atlassian website you can, in Confluence:

"Create libraries of content – standard images, copyright statements, glossary items – for re-use across pages and spaces."

http://www.atlassian.com/software/confluence/overview/technical-writers

Does this simply mean that you can create pages containting content that is used by the Excerpt or Multi-Excerpt plugins?

I've had a look in the user guide but can't see anything on this subject.

Cheers.

Hi Mick,

Confluence's inclusion libraries allow you to dynamically include content from one page into another page. You can include a whole page into another one, using the Include macro and you can also define an ‘excerpt’ on a page, and then include that excerpted text into another page using the Excerpt Include macro.

You can read more about configuring and using inclusion libraries in our documentation on the subject: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Creating+Your+Knowledge+Base+Space

All the best,
John

Thanks, that is very helpful, as is the rest of the info on that page. :)
