Discussion forum in Confluence

Prasad April 15, 2021

We are thinking to use discussion forum in confluence. Do you use discussion forum / discussion board in Confluence?

Is it good idea to have discussion forum in Confluence? What template should be used for discussion - Page/ Blog / Decision or any other ?

Please tell me your recommendations.


Thank you.

Just type {panel} and it will automatically show up

 - click the "+" icon 
 - click "more macros" 
 - search for "panel"

Cloud Confluence doesn't have or support the old panel macro.

"{panel}" is said to not be supported.

I'm the author of one of these applications - Community Questions for Confluence (formerly known as Q&A Community). I'm happy to answer any questions regarding the usage of Q&A-style apps as a discussion forum.

Hello, can't someone help me... I don't know which macro I can use on the confluence cloud to obtain the old macro 'Panel'?

I'm researching this right now and found a bunch of Q&A plugins in the Atlassian Marketplace, but haven't tried any of them out:

I also found this product from Atlassian: Questions for Confluence.

Has anyone tried any of these? How are you finding them?

I also found this related discussion comparing Stack Overflow for Teams with Questions for Confluence: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Questions-for-Confluence/Which-is-better-Stack-Overflow-for-Teams-or-Questions-for/td-p/1187605
