We think there are some pretty cool changes to help you streamline your workflow in Confluence 5.9, and we'd love to know what you think.
Some highlights in this release:
PS: I love the new dashboard.
I have a fresh instance of 5.9.1 where I've configured a Postgres database, a few example pages and SSL over Nginx. When I restart, it writes logs for 2 minutes* then hangs for 10 minutes, then works great**. Any idea?
* It displays the list of plugins as if it were about to serve contents, but then it displays a dozen exceptions: "
PKIX path building failed: sun.security.provider.certpath.SunCertPathBuilderException: unable to find valid certification path to requested target", then hangs for 10 minutes.
** It first writes "
nit Confluence is ready to serve", then the UI is reactive.
Am I alone in this situation?
I cannot find any use case to have same-anme pages eg. "Overview" in a single space, as quick search would return a list of hits & one has to check all hits to which is the relevant "Overview". As annoying as it is to think of a proper non-duplicate page name, it's worth to have non-duplicate names in the long run. I strongly object making duplicate page names possible, but making this feature configurable (maybe on space level) might be an option.
I would love duplicate page names. We could like following structure in our wiki-spaces: Client-Name (name of the space) * Internet ** test ** development ** accept ** production * Intranet ** test ** development ** accept ** production Currently we have to pick different names since we can't use 'test' etc. more than once. The alternative is separate wiki spaces for the different projects we do for the same client, but we already have 367 wikispaces and would prefer to not have this balloon to 500+
We installed 5.9.2, and I see following issues:
How do I get the "Birthdays this week" section in the dashboard sidebar as seen on the screenshot at https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/confluence-5-9-release-notes-785333580.html? Is there documentation on how to config that part?
Hi Flaimo, All of the info on customising the dashboard is in https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/customising-the-confluence-dashboard-169117112.html and https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/editing-the-site-welcome-message-138561.html. As far as that particular shot, I'm sure it's just something that's manually added to the welcome message.
Hey Seb, Thanks for bringing this up. I've added a note to the release notes for clarity. As we've officially deprecated the documentation theme, there will, unfortunately, be more features that don't work with it. We're putting our energies into making the default theme the best experience we can.
Just upgraded an instance from 5.7 to 5.9.1 and it looks awesome! No issues with the new dashboard here.
The only issue I have is that when I click the "create from template" button an empty window appears with a spinner icon. I can wait a long time but no content is displayed and no errors are logged.
