Editor content types

The latest version of the Microblog plugin includes a new and updated text editor. Read which content types are supported.

Write a micropost

The microblog editor is similar to the one used by Confluence for comments. Use it to share information and style your microposts.

Configurable content types

The content types listed here can be used to create a post. 


bold text


italic text


underlined text

Monospace format

monospace text

Strike through

struck through text





Image and file attachments


Link-solver for Confluence links (Confluence links that relate to the host-Confluence will be displayed as titles of those linked pages)

Link-solver for JIRA Links (Links to a connected Jira instance will be solved as Title, Status and Type in a macro)

The word you want to use as a hashtag has to be unformatted (not bold, underlined, italic etc.).

Please note that not all macros work within the microblog. Especially if you insert them via copy / paste.

Displayable content types

Displayable content types can't be used actively. Currently, there is no option to apply those styles when writing a micropost. Displayable means that the styling will show when you insert text with such styling from other sources.


Panel macro

The Microblog editor will only display the content of the panel macro. Stylings like hyperlinks will be applied. Background color, borders etc. won't be displayed.

Status macro

The Microblog editor will display the text content of the status macro in bold, but not the styling of the button.


Date macro

The Microblog editor will display the content of the date macro as plain text.

Choose a topic for your micropost

You also have to choose a microblog topic to store your micropost in. In most cases, a suggested topic is preselected. If you cannot see the option to select a topic, the topic is predefined by context or macro configuration.


Reply to a micropost

Replying to a micropost is pretty much the same as writing a new one. By clicking the "Reply"-Button the related micropost will be moved to the top of the timeline and you can answer while seeing the context. Obviously, you can not change the microblog topic when writing an answer.

You can not only reply to top-level microposts, but also to replies. Currently, no actually nested replies are created. Instead, your reply goes to the top-level post, but the post you refer to will be highlighted in the context and an @-mention will be inserted in the editor. Also, the editor now always shows up directly under the post you refer to so that you don't have to scroll through all the reply context.
