Create a button in Confluence page


I would like to highlight some links given in my Confluence documentation so I want use button (with the same aspect than the "Create" button for example). However, I haven't found a macro for button, neither a way to square my link and color the background. Have you an idea?

The trick I figured out is as follows:

1. Create a 1x1 table with a header. 

2. Put a normal link inside it.

3. Profit!

Sadly this does not work in the (crappy) new editor.

It still does not work in the new editor.

The Lozenge macro should be called Button macro.

You can also add a graphic as a button and hyperlink it.

Hi Milo and thanks for your response.

I guess you are speaking about the Satus macro.

This is interresting but is there a way to change the text size in it?



I mean exactly the Lozenge macro, part of the free elements of the Content Formatting Macros.

That and some other ideas:

I don't think AUI is available for Confluence Cloud.

Here's an easy, and limited, workaround:

Insert the "Status" macro. Use the macro edit to name your button. Save the change. Highlight the button, use the chainlink to add a web link. There aren't any size options and just a few colors, but it works.

Note: It only seems to work with website links, share links, browser links pasted into the "web link" box.

I tried this but the status bar disappears when I update page. Any ideas why this happens?

Not sure why, but it doesn't work if you search for a page and select the page you want to link to.

It does work for pages and uploads if you copy a link from your browser address box.

It also works if you get a link from the Share function and then go back and paste that link into the Web Link box.

oh right, thanks. I actually found another workaround.


Take a snip of the Status Macro and save as an image. Copy into table. Link to the image of the status macro. It is indistinguishable form the status macro.
