In our Company we'd like to define our project solutions in Confluence. The pages that contain these informations are then reviewed in a status meeting.
In the meeting notes we then want to insert a link to that specific version of the page, that was discussed in that meeting.
The link to that specific version is generated from Confluences-Page Metadata following the guide of Jon Schneider. We create a "copy to Clipboard" element (HTML macro) at the top of our pages. (http://blog.jonschneider.com/2010/02/confluence-wiki-linking-to-diff-against.html)
In the end a link in the following format is generated:
That works very well. However when i copy that link to my clipboard and paste it into the edit-page control the pageVersion Parameter of the URL gets automatically removed.
The links gets inserted correctly but after a short amount of time it gets auto-formatted. (I provided some screenshots at the end of this Question.
This of course can be resolved by changing the type of the link to "Link to Website" but for that i need 3 additional actions and i have to paste the link once more.
We like what Confluence does with a link through auto-formatting but we want it to keep the pageVersion Parameter. Is der any way to resolve this?
or What are the "standard" practices when one wants to achieve that kind of behaviour.
We are using Confluence 5.8.14.
This functionality (Auto formatting) is provided by Confluence Editor. You can disable the editor's autocomplete and autoformatting functions, by editing the settings in your user profile.
For more details, see Editing User Settings.
Thank you for your answer.
I found those settings thanks to your description. I deactivated both autocomplete and autoformatting function but when i paste a link i gets formatted on most of the pages and not formatted on some fewer pages in my space.
The two screenshots were made on two different sites today after i deactivated both features and logged off and on. In both cases i pressed the copy to clipboard button (to copy the link http://<ourServer>/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=1769817&pageVersion=31) and inserted it using CTRL+V.
I tried logging on and off with my user. Do i have to restart the server? Or am i missing something?
