Confluence 3.5 i used to enter
+[Question Tracker|\\van.com\root\IS_Documents\Business Analysis\Business Requirements\Question Tracker\Question Tracker POS_net.xls]
And it linked directly to a document on our local server/folders.
in 4.0 it does not work.
Any ideas why?
The new editor does not understand all of the old Wiki markup. To create such a link you have to do the following:
1. Type [
2. Choose "Insert Web Link"
3. Enter "\\van.com\root\IS_Documents\Business Analysis\Business Requirements\Question Tracker\Question Tracker POS_net.xls" in field Address
4. Enter "Question Tracker" in field Link Text
It could be possible that you have to enter the address as "file:///van.com/root/.../Question Tracker POS_net.xls". Have also a look at http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Linking+to+local+file+under+Firefox
