The Excerpt Include macro is used to display 'excerpted' (that is, a segment of) content from one page in another.

To use this macro, the excerpt must have been defined using the Excerpt macro and both pages must exist in the same space. Note that you can have more than one Excerpt Include macro on a page (although you can have only one Excerpt macro on a page).

The excerpt appears as shown below:

A short summary of this page

For this example, we are taking content from a page called 'Excerpt Macro', where the excerpt tags have already been placed. The title of the page is shown at the top of the panel and the text between the remote excerpt tags is rendered as the body of the text.

Parameters

Parameters are options that you can include in Confluence macros to control the content or format of the macro output. The table below lists relevant parameters for this macro.

Parameter names are different in the macro browser and in wiki markup. Below we show the macro browser parameter names in bold text, and the equivalent wiki markup parameters in (bracketed) text. If we do not show any parameter name for the wiki markup, then you should leave out the parameter name and simply include the parameter value as the first parameter, immediately after the colon (:).

Parameter

Description

nopanel
(nopanel)

false

Controls whether the square panel border around the excerpt should be removed. By default, the square panel is always shown.

Examples

{excerpt-include:Excerpt Macro|nopanel=true}
