Confluence (in my case: v4.2.2) provides easy access to a number of macros in the 'insert' drop down menu. More macro options are available at the bottom of the list in an extra window.
When working with confluence I realize that most macros we use quite often are in the extra macro window, while we rarely use the predefined dropw-down macros at all. Is there a way to customize the content od the drop down menu?
I know that the macros are also available by auto comple, but many of the guys I am working with are more comfortable with a menu solution (so they don't have to memorize macro names.)
Many thanks inadvance.
We've just published a tutorial that does this very thing, by adding a plugin:
I hope this helps. :)
One way you can do this customization is to modify the .xml file that maps the entries in the 'Browse' dropdown to the appropriate links. The .xml is located inside <confluence_install>/confluence/WEB-INF/lib/confluence-x.x.x.jar. Extract that and locate ./plugins/space-tabs.xml within.
Somewhere in there you should see:
<web-item key="space-administration" name="Admin Tab" section="system.space" weight="70"> <label key="space.admin" /> <link linkId="space-admin-link">/spaces/editspace.action?key=$generalUtil.urlEncode($helper.spaceKey)</link> <condition class="com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.descriptor.web.conditions.HasSpaceCondition"/> <condition class="com.atlassian.confluence.plugin.descriptor.web.conditions.SpacePermissionCondition"> <param name="permission">administer</param> </condition> <tooltip key="browse.space.admin"> <param name="param1">$helper.space.name</param> </tooltip> </web-item>
You can modify the option performing the changes on specify "<web-item key>";
Stick this modified .xml in the following location so that it overrides the standard one in the .jar (you may need to create the 'plugins' directory:
Restart Confluence and see how it goes.
Remember to backup any files that will be modified before perform the action.
