is it possible to change the page URL to be more nicer to the end users.
For example i'm having this link "http://wiki/display/SD/Systems+Documentation"
And i'm wondering if i can get rid of /display or change it to be for example
I have installed redirection and alias add-ins but no luck
Not really, and it is important to have it the way it is for a reason. For instance the "SD" is the space key. This is important because you can have two documents with the same name in different spaces. If you get rid of that part Confluence would not know which pages called "Documents" that you want.
Yes you can't change it.
Alias and redirections could work (although not without the space key), but they would need to take you to the actual page, and hence expose the real url of the page. So they would not really do a lot more than look like slightly shorter urls.
This requirement to have /display/ in the URL, and to have a non-editable Space key, are unfortunate, because it means we have to make our first decision be the best, and live with it without being able to improve on the URL later when we are more experienced. Other non-confluence systems simply allow the users to either edit the URL, or create a separate, editable, non-colliding URL space, that confuence keeps separate from the display and admin URLs. Not hard to do, folks, I would consider it for future versions of confluence.
Requests have been raised for this, but garnered so little interest, they're not being considered. It looks like this is a feature that nobody cares about.
To change that, Atlassian will need a use-case that explains why it might be useful to have urls that work this way.
I am creating a poster which will be placed around our business, informing employees where to go to get IT help.
On this poster I would like to have the URL of the confluence help page I am creating. Would be great to be able to change the URL to something easy to read and remember for people...
You can't get around the format of http <your domain> / <your confluence> /display/<space>/<page (hopefully human readable) name> directly.
A more real example of that without variables might be something like http://mydomain/docs/display/help/IT+Help
You will never get around the need to include the higher level part of it that gives you domain and server, but for the specific page, you have two or three landing points.
Thanks everyone for answering last week’s question. The winner of the random drawing from those who commented is: @LarryBrock I’ll contact you separately with your prize details. This wee...
