Confluence - Linking to a folder

I'm trying to create a link to a folder on a local drive, rather than linking to a specific document. Is this possible?

Hi @Emma Wakeling,

Please note that this answer only applies to Confluence server not Confluence cloud.

Basically you can link to any URI scheme supported by your browser. So what does this mean?

To link to a file on a local drive the file URI scheme can be used. You either use file:///path or file://hostname/path as link target.

file:///path (YES 3 slashes is used if you refer to your local machine)

e.g. file:///C:\folder\ is equivalent to file://localhost/C:\folder\

Please note that most links will just work for you if you do not use hostnames and this hostname is also available for all users clicking on the link ;)

Best, Tobias

Doesn't work with cloud...sounds like a great feature not to have.
