We introduce a brand new editor with Microblog 5.0. Use it to share information and style your microposts.
Input your text, links etc. into the editor, choose a topic and click on the Post it button.
Choose a topic for your micropost
To publish a micropost, you have to choose a microblog topic.
In most cases, a suggested topic is preselected.
If you cannot see the option to select a topic, the topic is predefined by context or macro configuration.
Since version 6.0, the topic can be changed even after a post has been published.
Change the topic after publication
NEW IN 6.0
Now, you can change the topic of your micropost after you have published it. To do so, click on the three-dots button and then on the Edit button.
At the top of your micropost, select a new topic. Finally, click on the Post it button to publish your changes.
Reply to a micropost
To reply to a micropost works like to write a new micropost.
Click on the Replybutton or just type your answer into the input field below a micropost. The editor always shows up directly under the post you refer to. You don't have to scroll through all text context.
You can also reply to other comments. Currently all replies are displayed under the top-level post.
Configurable content types
The content types listed here can be actively used to create a post.
Link resolver for Confluence links (links to the current Confluence instance will be displayed as titles of linked pages)
Link resolver for Jira links (links to a connected Jira instance will be displayed as the issue's title, status and type in a macro)
The word you want to use as a hashtag has to be unformatted (not bold, underlined, italic etc.).
Please note that not all macros work within the microblog. Check the compatibility after you insert content via copy / paste!
In Microblog version 5.0.x it's not possible to edit attachments.
This bug was fixed in Microblog 5.1.
Displayable content types
Displayable content types can't be used actively. Currently, there is no option to apply those styles when writing a micropost. Displayable means that the styling will show when you insert text with such styling from other sources.
The Microblog editor will display the content of the date macro as plain text.
→15 Oct 2019
The Microblog editor will only display the content of the panel macro. Styling like for hyperlinks will be applied. Background color, borders etc. won't be displayed.
