You can use the Include Page macro to display the contents of one Confluence page or blog post in another page or blog post.

Using the Include Page Macro

To add the Include Page macro to a page:

  1. In the Confluence editor, choose Insert > Other Macros
  2. Find and select the required macro

Speeding up macro entry with autocomplete: Type { and the beginning of the macro name, to see a list of suggested macros. Details are in Autocomplete for links, files, macros and mentions.

To edit an existing macro: Click the macro placeholder and choose Edit. A macro dialog window will open, where you can edit the parameters of the macro.


Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output. Where the parameter name used in Confluence storage format or wikimarkup is different to the label used in the macro browser, it will be listed below in brackets (example).




Page to Include


This is the name of the Confluence page or blog post that you want to include in the current page. Start typing a page title, and Confluence will suggest matching pages from the current space and other spaces.

Alternatively you can specify the page as follows:

  • If the page or blog post is located in another space, add the space key and a colon in front of the page name. For example, DOC:My page name. The space key is case sensitive.
  • To include a blog post, specify the date as well as the title of the blog post. For example: /2010/12/01/My blog post.
  • You can include pages from personal spaces using ~username as the space key, where 'username' is the person's username. For example, ~jsmith:My page name.

Code examples

The following examples are provided for advanced users who want to inspect or edit the underlying markup for a Confluence page. 

Macro name: include

Macro body: None.

Storage format example

<ac:structured-macro ac:name="include">
  <ac:parameter ac:name="">
      <ri:page ri:content-title="My chocolate page" ri:space-key="DOC"/>

Wiki markup example

{include:DOC:My chocolate page}


  • If you want to include part of a page rather than the whole page, use the Excerpt and Excerpt Include macros.
  • To display a page's contents, you need 'View' permission for that page. Similarly, people who view the page will need 'View' permissions for the embedded page as well as the page into which it is embedded. See space permissions or contact your Confluence space administrator for more information.
  • If you want to embed an external page into a Confluence page, you need the HTML Include Macro.
