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. 

Input your text, links etc. into the editor, choose a topic and click on the Post it button.


Choose a topic for your micropost

To publish a micropost, you have to choose a microblog topic.

In most cases, a suggested topic is preselected.

Please note:


If you cannot see the option to select a topic, the topic is predefined by context or macro configuration.



Reply to a micropost

To reply to a micropost works like to write a new micropost.

Click on the Reply button or just type your answer into the input field below a micropost. The editor always shows up directly under the post you refer to. You don't have to scroll through all text context.

You can also reply to other comments. Currently all replies are displayed under the top-level post.



Configurable content types

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


Bold

bold text

Italic

italic text

Underline

underlined text

Monospace format

monospace text

Strike through

struck through text

Lists

Quotes

Hashtags

#brandnewhashtag

Image and file attachments

Links

Link resolver for Confluence links (links to the current Confluence instance will be displayed as titles of those linked pages)

Link resolver for Jira links (links to a connected Jira instance will be displayed as its 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. Check the compatibility after you insert content 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.

Headlines

Date macro

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

   15 Oct 2019

Panel macro

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

 → Link

Status macro

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