Add Page via Form

Storage format

You can copy and paste this code into the Confluence Source Editor:


Macro structure

You can recreate the example in the editor view:


  1. In the page, create an Add Page via Form macro.

  2. For the Button Text parameter, enter text for the button link e.g. "Add project tracker page". Users will see this text when viewing the link on the page. 

  3. To decide what will happen when a user clicks on the link, specify the source parameters:

    • Source type is set to "page" since it is based on a Confluence page.

    • Source parameter determines the name of the Confluence page to use. E.g. "Page with Live Template".

  4. Tick the Live Template checkbox. 

  5. To ensure an organized space, make use of the Parent parameter, which tells Linking where to create the page. This is useful for automatically categorizing the pages. Leaving at default, will make the current page you are adding the macro the parent page. For this example, we are using "Project Catalogue". 

  6. You can also automatically add label(s) to the pages. For this example, we specify "project-key" in the Labels parameter.

  7. Click on the cross button or click on the page to save the changes. Repeat the previous steps as needed, then Publish the page.

Make sure the Source page being used has the Scaffolding Live Template included within.
