At the end of 2009 I published a post about creating a set of user macros useful for high-level project management. It dawned on me that there must be some really kick ass user macros that have been created by some of our 8,100 Confluence customers. So, I thought to myself, how can share these user macros? Use Confluence of course!

How can I start sharing?
We have a community space on our public instance of Confluence where you can connect with other users and share tips and ideas, and discuss all things Confluence. Now you can share your user macros too.
If you have one to share, just visit this page and click on the Add New User Macro link which will create a new page for you using a default template.
There are already two slick user macros out in the wild which you can read more about below.

Programmatic Class Diagrams
If you are using Confluence within a development team you are probably going to want to give this one a whirl. Justin Hickman wrote this nifty user macro that allows you to create class diagrams from embedded source code.

Related Content
I imagine this will be super useful for those using Confluence for documentation. Brad Rosenberg wrote this simple user macro to automatically generate related content based on the labels on the page. This macro wraps the {contentbylabel} macro, pulling the labels directly from the page. If no labels are specified, the macro simply doesn’t render anything.
