Links not taking to the destination on Confluence 7.4.8 version

Hi Everyone,


I have a page with a number of different links to other spaces. People copy that page in their own spaces and use it as a template to submit their solution designs for review. The links in the original page work fine, but when it gets copied over when the users click the links a new empty page is created instead of taking them to the intended destination.  Is this a bug or have I used the wrong type of link ?


Please drop your comments on the same ! Looking forward to hear from the same.

Hi Roja,

You might want to use blueprint or templates instead, but regardless of that, if they use the confluence link macro it should just keep on working.

But this also depends on how they copy it over.

Using templates seems the better option here instead of copying over the pages.


Hope this helps,
