I want to have the forum-summary macro pick up the excerpt from the underlying forums, but for some reasons I don't only get the excerpt but the whole page.

Should I be using something else than the excerpt macro at the top of the page in order for the forum-summary macro to pick it up correctly?

    I've just given this a quick test myself, the page content will be shortened if it is long, but the whole content will be displayed if it is short.

    The forum-summary macro is using the Confluence index to get its data, it looks like the default extractor that comes with Confluence doesn't actually use the value from the excerpt macro to create the index documents, thus it isn't appearing correctly in the forum summary macro.

    We will either need to change the forum-summary macro to get the excerpt off the page object itself or add a new extractor to add the correct excerpt into the index within the bubbles plugin.

      I've added a bug report for the above here:

    Great - thanks!

    To get around it for now I just lengthened the excerpt and it's working just fine. I no longer get the "Add new topic" link into each line of the forum-summary which was the thing that was bothering me.
