Insert content (a macro) into the global header

Hi everyone,

Can anyone advise how to add a macro (in our case, the live search macro) into the global header of confluence?

We wish to replace the current QuickSearch macro with the LiveSearch macro. 

We believe the wiki markup is similar to {livesearch:size=small|type=page|placeholder=Search}


1 answer

Cannot tell much about the macro itself, but we have been using the following construction in the templates


where $helper is

 #set ($helper = $decoratorUtil.getContentNavContext().getHelper())

which is an instance of ThemeHelper
