How to find page inclusions in Confluence 4

Technical writers frequently re-use content, for efficiency and consistency. In Confluence, we use the Include and Excerpt Include macros for content re-use. We also frequently need to find all pages that use the Excerpt Include macro, or the Include macro, to include content from a given page. In the standard Confluence 4 installation, that is not possible because the macro parameters are not indexed. There is a new plugin available that makes the search possible: the Confluence Macro Indexer plugin.

The Confluence Macro Indexer plugin enhances the Confluence search, so that you can search for specific macros, macro parameters and/or parameter values used on Confluence pages.

For guidelines on how to install the plugin and use the enhanced search, see my post: How to search for macros and macro parameters in Confluence 4.
