Link text not showing properly

Hi all,

up til now, whenever I pasted a link to another Confluence page, it would always change the url into the proper title of that page.

But since of today, the pasted link is not changing into the title, showing just the url. I will have to edit the title (name) of the link manually. Anyone have any idea on how to fix this?  Can provide some screenshots if needed. Thanks in advance for the help!

Are you selecting --> Insert Link, then --> Advanced to enter the links?


I use both. When I use <insert link>, I have to manually edit the link text.

When I paste the link on the page itself, it appears sometimes as the right page and sometimes as the url, as the screenshot above shows.


Please take a screenshot to better elaborate what you want solved.


Hi Victor,

Thanks for your reply. Here is a screenshot.

You see the 3 links: the upper 2, the link name automatically changed into the relevant page name.

This all of a sudden stopped. So now when pasting a link from another page, it shows the url, as shown in the 3rd link. It then needs to be manually edited into the page name.  Hope you can help. Error confluence.JPG

@Victor Mutambuki _Mumo Systems_  Hi Victor, It's been a while, issue did not show up last 2 weeks, until today again. Hope you can help. 

I am having something simialr issue, where if i copy paste the Confluence URL into TFS its not behaving like Link to click and launch. 

But if i copy it into Onenote and again copy and Paste into TFS it works.
