Confluence makes adding links 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
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:
- Pages in the same space, in another space, or outside Confluence
- Blog posts
- User profiles or personal spaces
- Mail messages
You can also use a Confluence link to:
- Create a new email message.
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.
- 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.
