Topic Description in the Content Source

By default, topics in your site use the first lines of content in your parent page to display a tile description. You can also use the Confluence Excerpt macro to customise these descriptions.

The description is only visible if the topic type for the content source page is set to ‘tiles’ in the theme editor, or if you’re using pinned pages.
