Parameter Logic

  • While none of the parameters are mandatory, you must specify at least one of them for this macro to work.

  • For the macro content to show, all contexts and modes specified must match.

    • In logic terms, this means if you wish to test against two different parameters that may be exclusive, you must use a Show macro for each list of parameters.

    • For example, testing against users and groups: A user must be in one of the groups mentioned or the logic will not work. If the user is not a in group mentioned in the parameters, test for the group permissions in the first Panel Show macro, then add another Panel Show macro inside that checks for the user names.

  • You can specify multiple values for any parameter, for example:

    {panel-show:mode=view,edit|context=page,blogpost}
    stuff to show
    {panel-show}
    • In the example above, stuff to show will only be shown if the content is shown in View or Edit mode and is either a Page or Blogpost.

Contexts, Modes and Decorators

You can determine the context and mode for any page by viewing the page source using your browser. A HTML comment output at the top of all pages shows the context and mode for each page.

Example

If you view the HTML source of a ThemeBuilder web page you’ll see similar to the following:

<!-- main.vmd
themebuilder : 'com.adaptavist.confluence.sitebuilder.SiteBuilderVelocityHelper@524c9770'/'$themebuilder.initialise'
spaceKey : 'USERGUIDE'
pageId : '10583'
currentURL : '/pages/viewpage.action?spaceKey=USERGUIDE&title=builder-show+macro&focusedCommentId=11666379'
contextPath : ''
spaceName : 'User Guides'
decorator : '$decorator'
printable : 'false'
mailId : '$mailId'
mode : 'view'
context : 'page'
-->

You can specify multiple contexts and modes by separating them with commas, as shown in the usage example earlier.

Example

Show a message on the user profile page. Code is placed on the ThemeBuilder Content panel.

<ac:macro ac:name="panel-show">
<ac:parameter ac:name="decorator">profile</ac:parameter>
<ac:rich-text-body>
This is the user profile page.
</ac:rich-text-body>
</ac:macro>
{panel-show:decorator=profile}
This is the user profile page.
{panel-show}
