Adding Macro to all pages in a space

Hello, I have a user macro created, named {watermark}. The code for this macro is below. How can I add this macro to all pages in a space without having to go through each page and manually adding the macro to the page?



## Macro name: watermark

## Visibility: All users

## Categories: Formatting

## Body processing: No macro body

## Define a watermark image for the current page

## @param ImagePath:title=Image path|type=string|required=true|default=|desc=Image file name of an attached image to this page, or full http path to the image to be used in the watermark. An opaque version of the OpenBet logo is the default.

## @param RepeatBehaviour:title=Repeat Behaviour|type=enum|enumValues=no-repeat,repeat,repeat-x,repeat-y,inherit|default=no-repeat|desc=Repeat option for the background image

## @param MinHeight:title=Minimum Height|type=string|required=false|desc=Minimum height to enforce for the page (so that all of the watermark image will be shown regardless of page content).

## Check default values (bug in Confluence -


#set($paramImagePath =



#set($paramRepeatBehaviour = no-repeat)


##Check for absolute image path or just image file name

#if ($paramImagePath.startsWith(http))



#set($imgsrc = $config.getBaseUrl() + / + $content.getAttachmentNamed(${paramImagePath}).getDownloadPathWithoutVersion())


<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(document).ready(function() {

/*Default theme*/

jQuery('#content').css('background-image', 'url($imgsrc)');

jQuery('#content').css('background-repeat', 'repeat');

jQuery('#content').css('background-position', 'left top');

jQuery('#content').css('height', '50');

jQuery('#content').css('vertical-align', 'bottom');

Hi Peter,

You can make use of the custom layouts, which is configurable for your space. This acts like a layout template for your Confluence pages - check out this documentation - The layout that you will most likely need is the 'Page Layout'.

Once you have identified where to put the macro, insert the following line to render the macro:


This is similar to the codes discussed in here -
