The section macro allows you to define a section of a page in which you can insert one or more columns across the page.

To add sections and columns to a page:

  1. Insert a pair of section macro elements to define the section of page that will contain your set of columns.
  2. Within this pair of section macro elements, insert a pair of column macro elements. Please note, all content within your section elements must be enclosed by a pair of column macro elements. If you do not do this, the section macro will not work.
  3. Repeat step 2 for each column you want to insert across this section of the page.

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 (:).
