The best way to deprecate Confluence pages

Edited

Hello!

I was just wondering if anyone has any suggestions on the best way to deprecate a page in Confluence.

My current process:

  • Each Space has either a Deprecated Pages or Archive page
  • The page contains the Red Warning macro in its own section with some explanatory text
  • The page also contains a section with the Children Display macro

 

Before a page is moved to the Deprecated Pages / Archive page I:

  • Insert a Red Warning macro with some explanatory text
  • Insert the Yellow Note macro with the link to the more up-to-date page

Then I move the page.


While this works quite well in terms of deprecating pages going forward, my challenge is the hundreds of pages that have been previously deprecated by simply moving the page to the Deprecated Pages / Archive page.

I could take the time to do the above to every single on of those pages but I feel that would not be an efficient use of my time.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Instead of doing this manually, you can use the Archiving Plugin that automates tracking outdated / irrelevant pages and moving those to archive pages.

Learn more here.

Awesome thanks @Aron Gombas _Midori_

I will definitely check it out!

Unfortunately this doesn't work for Confluence Cloud :(

Hi Christopher, 

we recently released a plugin called "Outdated for Confluence" which may accomplish what you are looking for.

With this plugin, the users can mark pages as outdated with an additional button.

A outdated review table macro then lets you keep track and review the outdated pages.

For more info see:

Hi Christopher, wondering what plugins you are using to highlight the user mention and date?

Thanks
