The Global Reports macro displays a list of links to some reports about content on your site.

These reports include a list of new or updated pages, orphan pages, undefined pages, and RSS feeds for new pages and blog posts.

  1. How do I use this macro on a page where I do not have access the macro editor - like on the dashboard on refinedwiki theme or the themebuilder from adaptavist? What will be the syntax which should be used?

    1. Hallo Christian

      You should be able to use wiki markup in most such situations. I've added some code examples to the page.

      Cheers, Sarah
