My company requires Confluence document titles to start with (PROPRIETARY)
I start with a working anchor on page:
When I put in the parens, the URL for the page changes to:
So I tried:
And it links to the page but not the anchor
To complicate matters, I want to use the anchor in a Page properties macro so that it shows up in the Page properties report on a separate page.
The issue here is that I can't use the Insert link/Advanced function to set the anchor to current page#anchorname since Confluence removes the current page and when I run the report, it is looking for the anchor on the report page.
That's a limitation of html - the brackets need to be escaped in urls, but they can't be used in anchors because the escaped character is not the same as the pages actual name.
I'm afraid you are pretty much stuck, unless your company changes its policy to match internet standards (not using escaped characters in titles)
It seems all you have to do is have the first character of the title be a number or letter.
So this works
Page title: Companyname (PROPRIETARY) Pagename
Page title: Pagename (PROPRIETARY)
This also works
Page title: Companyname (PROPRIETARY/PII) Pagename
They all fail the page checker looking for (PROPRIETARY) markings at the beginning of the line but the policy people seem ok with these alternatives.
