I tested used macros for the title and content use using Hello . The title did not resolve however the content did.
Worse case you can write your own custom widget instead of using the OOB Formatted Text to meet your requirements.
I did not get what you mean by tested used macros using Hello. Can you elaborate please?
Can you show a snippet of the code you're using to try and do this? FWIW, the custom title is displayed on / around line 289 of jive-macros.ftl.
