I found documentation for turning on camel case linking for Confluence 3.5 and prior (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF35/Enabling+CamelCase+Linking); however, this option no longer seems to exist in Confluence 4.0. Is it possible to turn on camel case linking in 4.0? I am importing from Twiki which uses camel case linking.
As Matt said, we removed the setting as part of our overall goal to simplify the product. We did not consier the implications this had to importing content from other wikis. Thanks for bringing this up. I think this may be something we will bring back. I've raised an issue for you: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-23331 so we can track this and track demand for it.
Thanks for bringing this up.
Is there a way to turn it back on? We are currently evaluating Confluence (currently use Twiki) and Twiki uses camel case linking. When I imported some Twiki data (using UWC) all our links are broken. It would be tedious and not feasabile to manually fix all of our links.
If camel case linking is off how do you quickly link documents in Confluence, what is the equivalent functionality?
You still link with the name of the referenced page, it is just that using camel case is not an automatic trigger for the text being a link. Enter a link with "[" . So you can have a page named MjpArme and you create a link [MjpArme] to that page. But page names can have non-camel case names, with spaces, etc. That freedom it seems is much more desirable.
When I transferred our content from an OddMuse wiki, I had to do a lot of massaging by scripts to make up for not using camelcase. I missed some cases where text should not have been turned into a link when I took every camel case word and added brackets around it.
In the meantime, if you want a workaround to enable CamelCase linking for your Confluence 4.0 instance - you can setup a Confluence 3.5 instance, enable CamelCase linking and then upgrade it to 4.0 - the state of the setting will be preserved when upgrading to Confluence 4.
