How do you create page links with URL Parameters?

We're using PocketQuery with dynamic parameters to be able to define a page that displays the result of a query depending on a passed URL parameter.

How do I create links from other pages which pass different parameters to the same page?

For instance, I have a page called "Program Files" which lists programs defined in a database, but filters the list to only show programs that start with the passed 'letter' parameter.

So to list programs that start with 'a' I can reference a page (using the browser location bar) as "Program Files?pq_letter=a" and only the 'a' programs appear in the list.

So how do I create a link on another page to point to page "Program Files" with the parameter "?pq_letter=a"?

Hi Duncan,

Shouldn't this work with a normal web link like this?

You could also take the ID-based URL which is a little cleaner: /pages/viewpage.action?pageId=%yourPageId%&pq_letter=a

P.S. we just released PQ 2.0 which has a feature "dynamic load" that could come very handy for your dynamic parameters. You can find information here.

This is obviously the only way to do it. I had to insert the Space Key (CU in this case) after the /display/. My concern would be that this method wouldn't cope with renaming the target page. For instance if I renamed the "Program Files" page to "System Files". But I guess it does the job. :-)

"wouldn't cope with renaming the target page" -- that's what I meant with the ID based link. Simply get the page ID ( and you can rename the page as you please. The link will stay valid.

Aha! That's brilliant. I will try that method, too.

Hi Duncan! Thanks for the feedback! Would you mind to contribute to the PocketQuery community and mark my answer as accepted? And would you mind leaving a review for PocketQuery at the marketplace?

This didn't work for me, Confluence 8.8.

Substituting the tiny link instead of page name and keeping the parameters takes me to the page as with no parameters passed in.
