Adding markdown with external image and link

Hi team,


I was trying to add a CIrcleCI badge using their provided markdown:


which provides me with the badge, but clicking it only takes me to the image, not to the CircleCI project.

I've taken a look at the keyboard shortcuts and guides to insert images with links, but I've had no luck in formatting the MD correctly.


Any help/tips?

Hi @Cliffery ,

you'd need to format the link in a different way:

[! http://external/image.png!|http://external/link.html ]


Thanks @marc

So I've tried using that format, but it doesn't display the badge icon, it just shows the text.

The right column is with the space after first bang, and before the closing ], the left is without the spaces. 


If I insert:


it shows the badge but with no link.

If i insert:


 It just shows the link but no badge (Which is odd, I would assume the [CircleCI] is just the alt text right?)


I'm sure there's a simple answer to this, I've played around with [], spaces, but still haven't found the correct format yet.

Any other insights?

It seems confluence cloud does not support all markdown:

Ah! Yep, that would be it.
