we are writing our software documentation in Confluence.
Some Confluence pages need a colon ":" in their page title.
And sometimes it is necessary to set a link to such a page from another page. When I try to do so, Confluence says, that it does not recognize the part in front of the colon as a valid spacekey (which is correct).
How can I even so link to such a page (except of renaming the targe page)?
Thanks in advance
I discovered that this can work if you use the "Advanced" tab for editing the link, and include the Space ID in the link. It seems to know the first colon separates the link from the page, and the second colon is part of the page name.
If you go back to the link editor, it will forget that you gave it a space name explicitly (maybe only when it's the same space as the space of the page you're editing?) and you have to type it back in each time you edit.
To link to an auto-generated anchor (e.g. from a Table of Contents) on the target page, you can append "#" and the portion of the named anchor that corresponds to the header of the section you're linking to. This means stripping off the portion of the named anchor that corresponds to the name of the page itself.
Example: I'm linking to
I need to insert
as the Link in the Advanced link editor, and keep prepending "FOO" every time I subsequently edit the link.
Tested using Confluence 6.1.1.
