hi cogenesis,

do you mean macros?

if that doesn't match your request please clearify what you mean by variables in confluence to show up on pages

This is similar, but it does not suit my needs.

When creating a template, you can specify the following:

$variable1 = bRx

$variable2 = HHq

Then, wherever on the page you place $variable1 it will show bRx

How can I set $variable1 in confluence, so then no matter what page/space I am in, when entering $variable1 or $variable 2, this will show the result?

Instead of updating each page with new information, I would just like to change the variable to then show on each page/space.
