There are a number of ways you can get existing content, such as text, images and other content into Confluence.
Importing content from other Confluence sites
To import content from another Confluence site you can:
- Import a backup of the entire Confluence site
- Import an XML export of an individual space. Page history, attachments, and page content will be preserved.
Importing content from a Microsoft Word document
The Office Connector allows you to create pages by importing Word documents. The document content is copied onto one or more Confluence pages. See Importing a Word Document into Confluence.
Importing web content
To displaying web content on a page:
- Use the Widget Connector Macro to display videos, slide shows, twitter chats, documents and more, sourced from other web sites and displayed on your Confluence page.
- Embed an external web page into Confluence with the HTML Include macro.
- Use HTML code in a page with the HTML macro.
Importing other content
Importing non-wiki markup into Confluence requires a conversion process:
Text with basic formatting can be pasted directly into the editor. This includes simple Word documents or web pages.
Confluence pages saved to disk can be imported from disk.
Files can be uploaded in bulk using the Confluence WebDav Plugin
- Full featured customisation is available using the Confluence APIs.
