Link-Window and Content Publishing Plugin in Confluence

Thomas Schlegel Community Champion Apr 03, 2012

Hi all,

we use the content publishing plugin to publish changes from one space to another. Regular links between pages in the source space are converted to the corresponding pages in the target space, so everything is fine.

Now the problem: we have created some links with the link-window makro, because the linked pages should open in a new browser window. These links are not converted by the content publishing plugin. From the target space, they link to the page in the source space.

Is there anything we can do to avoid this ? The only solution I found is to create the link in the source space with the target space as destination.

Thank you

1) both are "extensions" to confluence, contributed outside the confluence core functionality. So the content-publishing-plugin would need to be reprogrammed to include the link-window makro in its checks. So send a featurerequest to the authors about that

2) with several makros, moved pages or renamed pages are not tracked. I guess that would be a feature request for a "standard-api-call", trackbacks, basically, to find all makros that use pagenames in their parameters. Check the ticketsystem for a feature request and vote on it - or request it yourself. In both cases - but up the link for vote in here.

Good luck hunting
