You use it when there's some text on one page you want to see in another.

so it is sort of like a pre copy and pasted comment?   It is meant to be used across multiple pages.

Would an example be like a footer?  Seen on every page?

 

No, it displays text from one page on another.  So you only have to edit the text once.

Ok, so I put the macro on one page put I some text clicked 'inline'

Published the page - my text shows up.

But How do I present in on another page?

 

Thanks,

 

 

 

 

As it says in the doc, use include-excerpt

ok got it...

edit the page an add the insert... now I got it.

So I am noticing macros rely on other macros to fxn.  Getting there little by little.

thanks,
