Info, Tip, Note, and Warning Macros

The Info, Tip, Note, and Warning macros allow you to highlight information on a Confluence page. They create a colored box surrounding your text, like this:

To add an Info, Tip, Note, or Warning Macro to a page:

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

Speed it up with autocomplete: Type and the beginning of the macro name, to see a list of suggested macros. In this example we're inserting the cheese macro.

To edit an existing macro: Click the macro placeholder and choose Edit. This will open the macro details, so you can edit the macro parameters.

Parameters

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).

Parameter

Macro body: Accepts rich text.

{info:title=This is my title|icon=false}
