Confluence plugin that shows a preview of the page associated with a page link?

Does there exist a plugin that will show a screenshot of a Confluence Page when you hover over a Confluence page link? We often find the description of our confluence site's Page Links is not descriptive enough (since it needs to be short) to know what is on the page behind the link.

Does there exist any plugin that will show a screenshot or preview of the Confluence page associated with a page link?

Hello There,

Being honest with you actually we don't hava e plugin with this kind of feature, so what could be possible here would be a kind of customization to achieve this goal. And to work with customizations generally we suggest to our customers to request a help from one of our Atlassian Experts, that is a kind of partner that can help in this kind of case. You can find an Atlassian Expert near to you in the following link:

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Nice plugin Rui.

Is there any chance it could be made to work with links on the sidebar?

Also, rather than showing the preview when you hover over the link, render a tiny 'preview' icon next to the link instead, that when you click on it, opens the preview in a box centered in the screen (like when you click on an thumbnail image, it expands to show the full-size image)? The reason I ask is that when you have a lot of links, it sometimes becomes distracting when you are dragging your mouse over lots of links very quickly and you have preview windows popping up all over the place.

Good work - we really want this kind of functionality because our page titles are so vague (e.g. "Requirement 1", "Requirement 2") it becomes really tedious to have to click into each page to see if we got the right one.


Hi Rui, Looks like a great plugin. But I want to browse through the PDF's. Is this possible? Thank you.

Hello everyone, 

Handy Cards from Handy Macros for Confluence can be used to create page previews for Confluence internal and external pages. They are an easy way to organize and structure your Confluence page. Handy Cards can be configured in many ways, including their layout, number, source, images, etc.
