Confluence tries to encourage linking by making it as simple as possible. You can link to content anywhere within Confluence or on another web site. Confluence also gives you the flexibility to do some pretty complicated things with links.

Wiki Markup or Rich Text Editor

Icon

This page tells you about using Wiki Markup to add links. Note that you can use the Rich Text Editor instead.

You can create links to and from the following locations:

You can also use a Confluence link to:

If you are using the Wiki Markup editor, links in Confluence are denoted by square brackets. Whenever you place text between square brackets (like this: [your text goes here]), Confluence recognises it as a link.

Handy Hints

  • Links in Confluence will not break even when you rename pages or move them between spaces on your site.
  • Looking for a link type not shown above? You might find a plugin can help you.
  • Your Confluence administrator can configure Confluence to display icons next to each link, distinguishing external links, user links and email links.
