Is there a way in confluence to cite/reference similarly to how Wikipedia references work? (I'm aware of direct links, but I want to have an auto-generated list of references and properly generated cite-links at the position of the citation like Wikipedia does).
We are writing software design descriptions in Confluence, and in the document I want to cite and reference minutes of meetings (also created in confluence) as the source for why we are doing something, or why a certain feature is needed.
This functionality is not available natively in Confluence. However, you may be interested in this free plugin that offers that functionality: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/de.edrup.confluence.plugins.simple-cite. It's compatible with Confluence version 5.5.6 and above.
Hope this helps!
Simple Cite for Cloud is not free yes - it costs money to host the application and we can't provide this for free. Simple Cite for Server was free until recently - you can download the last free version 1.5.8 from the Marketplace.
Alternative: take the source code (both cloud and server are open source) and build your own free version for personal use.
I hope that helps.
I am not sure if this plugin answers' your question;
we have released a plugin namely 'QC Documents for Confluence Cloud' that enables to auto generate two tables :
1. Citation table - that lists all the pages that cite the current page
2. Internal reference table - that lists all the internal references pages that can be found at the current page.
More information you may find here . The plugin is only available for the Confluence Cloud.
You can manually create this using Superscripts and anchors. Personally I don't worry about the anchors as I use the Footnotes system, but the Superscript approach works nicely with numbered lists.
To do this, just type your text and place your number or letter after the text (numbers work better). Go back once you are finished the paragraph and change the numbers to Superscript. At the end of a document put the Horizontal Rule and underneath type the Footnotes you wanted to appear.
If you leave a space after your last paragraph you can do this as you go so its not so much of a hassle at the end of the document.
Here's how to link to content from within Confluence

It’s been great to hear from fellow users over the last few weeks about the best tips and fun moments you’ve had working on Confluence since the transition to working remote. I’d love to keep the c...
