Editing multiple pages simultaneously Edited

I have a page that contains some common information. I need to duplicate this information on other 20 pages. Manual copying and keeping this content up-to-date on all pages is rather problematic, because it will take much time to change content on each of 20 pages every time.  

Is it possible to change the source page content only, so my changes would be displayed on other pages too?

(Note - this text was accidentally removed, which makes the answer look like nonsense and stops the question helping others.  I've put it back)

Yes, quite easy.

Do you want to include the whole page? In that case, simply use the Include Page macro in the pages where you want to duplicate the information and refer to the original page.

Do you only want to include part of a page? In that case, you need to choose one page that will contain the information, and put that information inside of an Excerpt macro. Then, on the pages where you want to duplicate the information, insert the Excerpt Include macro and refer to the original page.

Do you want to excerpt multiple sections out of a page? It's not possible with the base version of Confluence, but you can use the Multi-excerpt add-on to include that functionality.
