Deprecated macro, discontinued from RefinedTheme for Confluence 4.2.19

Atlassian decided to remove status updates in Confluence 5.9. Thus this macro is available in RefinedTheme version 4.2.18 and versions prior, for all Confluence versions. It's only available in version 4.2.19 and up, provided that a Confluence version lower than 5.9 is running. 

Status Updates

Macro key: rw-status-updates

Macro body: None.

Displays confluence status updates in a good looking list.


Using the Status Updates macro

To add the Status Updates macro to a page:

  1. In the Confluence editor, choose Insert > Other Macros.
  2. Find and select the Status Updates macro.

To add the Status Updates macro to a dashboard:

  1. In the Dashboard Editor, open the Macro Browser and select RefinedWiki's macro Status Updates, or search for rw-status-updates

Leverage the power of Layout placeholders:

The parameters of the Status Updates macro works great with Layout Placeholders if the macro is placed on a dashboard or space layout.



Parameters are options that you can set to control the content or format of the macro output. When the parameter name used in Confluence storage format or wiki markup is different to the label used in the macro browser, it will be listed below in brackets (example).
