How can I add a user macro to the documentation theme's layout

Hi all,

How can I add macro [1] to the documentation theme's page layout please? Confluence only allows to customize the default theme and I tried editing the doctheme.jar files but they dob't work well with the macro.

Go to Space Admin -> Themes and select to Configure the documentation theme. Just add the macro to the header or footer section.

Thanks Bob. I want to add the macro into the page area rather than the footer.

I mean I want the next/previous links in the body of the page. Not the footer. Any idea how to do this please? If went to the Administrator -> Look & Feel -> Layouts but not sure where to edit and how.

You can add them to the footer and then use jQuery to move them where you want. E.g.:

<script type="text/javascript">
	jQuery('#prevnext').insertBefore('#main-header');
</script>

(Assuming you've wrapped your buttons in a div with the 'prevnext' id.)

I am interested in adding the noprint macro to the Documentation theme.

I have found the following in the Atlassian documentation, but when I add this it doesn't seem to work. I can only find the template code for the noprint macro so maybe I need the wrapper for it as well, but can't figure out what this would be.

Taken from page https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/NoPrint+Example+of+a+User+Macro, the content for the macro is

## @noparams
<div class="noprint">$body</div>
Also, this has to go into the PDF CSS:.noprint
{
display: none ;
}
I tried putting this into the footer of the Documentation theme as an alternative way to define the macro, but this didn't work either:
## @noparams:title=noprint|type=formatting|desc=excludes content from PDF print version|multiple=true

Can you help me here? Thanks...
