I have finished the first few tutorials for confluence developers. I originally took up this research as I wanted to create some simple Macros that would conditionally include content on pages created from a global template.
Specifically, I wanted confluence contributors to add a page from a template. I wanted them to select custom content using text boxes on the template and have fixed text blocks be added to the resulting page based on their selections. Very simple I would think. In the old confluence, building simple macros that would conditionally add content was straight forward. Now I have a pretty good idea on how to have a macro insert content into a page, and I can have the template store variables on the page the macro could interrogate to decide on content. But the problem I have is persistence. I don’t have a server running on the web I can reference to have my macro’s hosted.
Will Confluence host my macros? How do I upload my macro for hosting? If I cannot host these Macros on Confluence, where are these macros normally hosted?
