using macros inside user macros



I got a user macro 'abc' which is a panel macro with predefined values - pretty straightforward


## Macro title: CMPanel
## Macro has a body: Y
## Body processing: 
## Output: Selected output option
## Developed by: idalko
## Date created: dd/mm/yyyy
## Installed by: idalko
## @param title:title=Title|type=string|required=false|desc=panel title

<ac:macro ac:name="panel"><ac:parameter ac:name="bgColor">transparent</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="titleBGColor">#555555</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="title">$paramtitle</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="borderStyle">solid</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="borderColor">#555555</ac:parameter><ac:parameter ac:name="titleColor">#FFCC00</ac:parameter><ac:rich-text-body>$body</ac:rich-text-body></ac:macro>


This works fine, until I add another macro in the body of the macro itself.  For instance, if I add a dynamic tasklist in this macro, the panel expands to the bottom of the page.  All formatting is lost.


The storage format does look ok, but the formatting is completely wrong.

Any ideas ?

For "macro body processing" in the user macro do you have it set to "Rendered"?

Yes - it is set to rendered

I have tried your case, Francis, on Confluence 5.6.6 and can also confirm that if you have a tasklist inside a panel macro it works, but if you put it inside your cmpanel, it simply does not render it... inside the editor all looks good though.. very strange

Hello Francis.

I am afraid that is a known issue: We will have to wait for the developers to fix this.
