I think I must be doing something daft here - maybe the community can let me know where I'm going wrong.
I have multiple Spaces within the same Confluence On Demand wiki. Space A contains multiple technical manuals. In order to avoid spamming users of Space A with multiple page updates, I am creating new manuals in Space B, and then moving the whole manual into Space A once they are complete.
Here's where I'm struggling: If I link from Space B to Space A, the link survives the migration, and is still intact when I move the new manual into Space A. But if I link internally within Space B, then when I move the manual into Space A, all of the internal links get broken, and they appear in brown, as though the page they are linking to does not exist.
Before I raise a support call, can anyone point out any real obvious mistakes I've made?
I think you should report this as a bug, because the confluence documentation clearly states that all links to pages should survive a move :
Sorry, I don't think that's it. Sounded plausible, because I've been linking to pages by selecting from the "recently viewed" tab; but when I tried linking to a few pages by searching, I got the same result (i.e clicking on the link in the new space takes me to the "create page" dialogue).
OK, here's a report on my troubleshooting this issue:
I create a new parent page in an existing space. I then create four child pages, all at the same level of the nvigation tree.
I create the links using a mix of searching for them, or else browsing recently viewed pages. (In other words, I use one of the first two options on the Confluence link editor). I then move my parent page, with its four children, to a new space.
Surely all links should survive the migration, or am I doing something really obviously wrong?
I then edited Pages 1 and 2 in their new location. I corrected the links, this time using only the search dialogue, and then moved them back to their original location. Result:
Maybe I should just log a call with Support. I'm using On Demand.
