The Forum Summary Macro is a dual purpose macro. It can be used to provide a summary of all forum macros across a space or root page. This helps provide a simple overview of all the Forums in a space, or can be used to create an easy to navigate list of forums.
There are two usage options with this macro, "space" and "page". In space mode, the macro shows all forums from the specified space. In page mode, the macro shows all forums that are child pages of the given page. The forums can be displayed in a table showing the number of topics/replies, as well as the last person to update the forum.
