Insert the include page macro

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:

  1. When editing , select from the toolbar

  2. Find the item to be inserted and select it

  3. Select Insert

You can also type / on the page to bring up the same list you'd see by selecting from the toolbar.

To edit the Include Page macro:

  1. Select the macro placeholder. The floating toolbar appears.

  2. Select Edit. The right panel opens.

  3. Modify the parameters. Your changes are saved as you go.

  4. Resume editing the page, and the panel closes.


Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output. 

If the parameter name used in Confluence Cloud storage format or wikimarkup is different than the label used when inserting macros using the browser or the slash command, 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.

Wiki markup examples

Wiki markup is only supported in the legacy editor.

Wiki markup is useful when you need to add a macro outside the editor, for example as custom content in the sidebar, header or footer of a space.

Macro name: include

Macro body: None.

1 2 3 4 {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.
