Display version page on top information ( and not using History)




I would like to put an information important on top of my confluence page : The version.

I know we can know the version with "..." -> "page history" 

But i would know it directly in first information under the page title, like this :

Create a user macro (you'll need admin privileges).

The answer outlined here leads the way, without telling you how to create it :-/

  • Admin->General Configuration 
  • select "User macros" from the left hand pane
  • click on the create user macro link at the bottom of the list in the RH pane
  • "Macro name" has to be of the form my-user-macro (eg show-page-ver)
  • "Macro Title" is the text the user will see in the "add macro" section
  • For the macro itself, I replaced all the template text with

## @noparams
Issue #$content.version


To use it, just edit a page, hit the + to "insert more content" and search for the macro name you created.

It works a treat and appears on PDF's, if you gen a PDF from your page.  Thanks to Richard Gundersen for answering his own question and sharing this great tip.

Put the following code in your custom HTML:

<script>AJS.toInit(function() { jQuery(".page-metadata-modification-info").append("<span>v." + jQuery("meta[name=page-version]").attr("content") + ".</span>"); });</script>
