Confluence 5.9.0-OD-59

More control over page excerpts

The Children Display and Content by Label macros both have an option to show a small excerpt of the content of the page in the list. In this release, we've made those excerpts much more interesting. 

You can now choose between:

  • Simple excerpt
    This is the current excerpt option, which shows a single line of text from the Excerpt macro on each page. If there's no Excerpt macro, this option won't show anything.
  • Rich content
    This option shows formatted text, images, and even some macros. If there's an excerpt macro on the page, it'll use the contents of that macro; if there's no Excerpt macro, it'll use whatever is at the top of the page. 

Give it a try, add a Children Display or Content by Label macro to your page, and turn on the rich content excerpt.
