How to link to page with a colon in the page title?

Hi,

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

Robert

I'm afraid you can't - the : is used by Confluence to separate Space:Pagename so, although you can use it in a page name, it can't be referred to by the internal linking system.

By "link" are you referring to a hyperlink or include page?
