Hello, my question is if it's possible to import a whole folder (with sub folders and word documents / pdfs as example) in Confluence? Maybe it's possible via a plug in but i haven't found anything usefull till now.
I'm trying to use Confluence as a Technical Writing tools and want to bring our current existing manual. The Attachment option only attaches (as the name says!) but that is not what I want. I used Tools>Import Word Document to bring in the files. But still interested to know a better/faster way to bring the whole manual.
Ah, so you want to create real pages from the documents. Well, there are some ways to do it, but not without some technical expertise. Also, depending upon how big the manual is it might be faster to create the pages manually rather than doing the import and validation cycle multiple times till you get a good import. If you want to do it the more technical way check out the Universal Wiki Converter. This would require that the pages being imported be in a text format ... so not .pdf, or .doc. There are converters out there that can convert Word and PDF to mediawiki format and then you could use the UWC to then import the converted files as it has a template for mediawiki already. -- Universal Wiki Converter -- https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.uwc
Another option is to just attach the .doc and .pdf files to individual pages and use the Word and PDF macros to display the attached .doc and .pdf files respectively. Then over time just convert them to real pages as you have time ... which realistically speaking probably means never. :)
If I understand your comment from Nov 3 2014, sounds like, if a user is dealing with multiple PDF's (e.g, in the hundreds or even thousands)....the best to create that as Confluence content would manually or through something like the Universal Wiki Converter.
Does that opinion still hold true in 2018?
