It looks like '{' in external link is not taken as link in confluence

Hi,

I need to use a hyperlink which has '{' in it. but looks like confluence doesn't like it and after saving the page i am getting as plain text instead of hyperlink. Any workaround ?

Hi Shamith,

I think you want to use the character 

[

instead as the  '{' character is for opening a macro statement.

Give that a try and I hope that helps.

Sincerely,

Chuck

Hi Chuck,

Thanks for the response. Its a sharepoint link, so replacing '{' with '[' will lead to dead link in sharepoint.

Thanks,

Shamith
