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