Examples

Basic Use

The following example shows how to link a section of text.

With "Add-ons home page" added to the body of the macro and the Link parameter completed with "https://www.adaptavist.com/doco/display/CON/Adaptavist+Plugins".

That results in the following:

See the

 Add-ons home page.

Linking Panels

When linking panels you can either put the macro inside or outside the panel. If you put it inside the panel (as shown below) then the "whitespace" around the panel contents and also either side of the panel will not be clickable - only the content within the panel will be clickable.


Here's the result:

Click Below

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam fermentum vestibulum est. Cras rhoncus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Sed quis tortor. Donec non ipsum. Mauris condimentum, odio nec porta tristique, ante neque malesuada massa, in dignissim eros velit at tellus. Donec et risus in ligula eleifend consectetur. Donec volutpat eleifend augue. Integer gravida sodales leo. Nunc vehicula neque ac erat. Vivamus non nisl. Fusce ac magna. Suspendisse euismod libero eget mauris.


If you wrap the entire panel in the macro then everything (including the space either side of the panel) will be clickable.

Which results in:

Click Anywhere

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Aliquam fermentum vestibulum est. Cras rhoncus. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Sed quis tortor. Donec non ipsum. Mauris condimentum, odio nec porta tristique, ante neque malesuada massa, in dignissim eros velit at tellus. Donec et risus in ligula eleifend consectetur. Donec volutpat eleifend augue. Integer gravida sodales leo. Nunc vehicula neque ac erat. Vivamus non nisl. Fusce ac magna. Suspendisse euismod libero eget mauris.

Links in Clickable Regions

One of the interesting "features" of this macro is that any links that are within the clickable region are also clickable. This means that you can have a clickable region that goes to one location and then links within it that go to another location.
