The Topic Summary Macro allows you to quickly and easily see a snapshot of topics across several forums. This provides you with an overview of activity across several topics. It can also be customised to show a small excerpt from the topic, which helps quickly assertain what the topic is about.
Insert the Topic Summary Macro into a page, setting the space parameters to the space you which to report (the default is the current space).
Like the Forum macro, the topics that are displayed are found using the Confluence search index. This means there will normally be a slight delay between when a page or comment is added.
