I'm reasonably sure I asked this before, but a search doesn't return an answer.
If people foolishly used wiki markup to create a new page in space Alpha by typing brackets, like this:
when the page and all its children are moved to space Beta, Confluence "helpfully" updates all links so they point back to the original space, like so:
This is causing me a LOT of grief because I'm moving many pages. Endless, endless broken links. :(
According to this problem I think it'd be necessary to share with is the conflunce log in order to have a better view of this probem, I mean to create a support ticket if is the case.
First, I believe this document may help you on this issue as we can see here:
Also, you might try rebuild index from scratch:
Hope it helps.
Thank you very much, Bernardo. It took awhile to get the indexes rebuilt (it took over 4 and a half hours so it had to be done during a quiet period, and our support person very kindly logged in over the weekend and did it in her spare time).
I am delighted to report that rebuilding the index fixed the problem. Hooray!
I've run some tests and find this is still broken.
Rebuilt the ancestor table and got the same results.
I've now asked for the administrator to re-index Confluence overnight when it won't interfere with users. Will update when I get a chance to run the tests again.
I think this must have been a bug that they fixed in 4.0 https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-22498
which leaves me out in the cold, because I'm using 3.5. And given the loss of wiki markup, likely to remain on it until kangaroos learn to fly.
UPDATE: My mistake. This is a DIFFERENT annoying problem that happens when you move pages.
