Is it possible (in confluence) to craft the url for iframe or dynamic to use?

john Jul 16, 2014

for example, I want to include the results from a internal search engine where the seach is for the page title. I see some references to the page title as a session varable but I have no idea how to get it appended to the end of the URL so that the page renders the results in a iframe

Hi John,

Here is a user macro that should do what you need (according to your example):

## @noparams
<ac:macro ac:name="iframe">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="title">Wikipedia Page</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="height">500</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="width">100%</ac:parameter>
  <ac:parameter ac:name="src">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/$content.getTitle()</ac:parameter>
  <ac:rich-text-body>
    <p> </p>
  </ac:rich-text-body>
</ac:macro>

You should just be able to mix and match as you need.

This did work and on the site I have to use, I have to get an admin to write it. so I sure wish it was more like parsing works in mediawiki. But this does the answer. Thanks,

Which Atlassian product are you working in here?

Ok, so is this about inserting an iframe into a confluence page and pulling data from another system, or inserting confluence into an iframe in another app?

Confluence

john Jul 23, 2014

First thanks for relpying on this. The content would be in a confluence page here is an example XML fragment :

<ac:macro ac:name="iframe">

<ac:parameter ac:name="title">Wikipedia Page</ac:parameter>

<ac:parameter ac:name="height">500</ac:parameter>

<ac:parameter ac:name="width">1000</ac:parameter>

<ac:parameter ac:name="src">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helium</ac:parameter>

<ac:rich-text-body>

<p> </p>

</ac:rich-text-body>

</ac:macro>

but I want the currnent page name value to be used instead of hardcoded word : Helium.

thanks again for thinking about this
