Links with emoticons in the rich text editor

In Confluence 3.x, one could insert a link of the form [(/) | link], which would then create the appropriate emoticon as the link text. I can't seem to figure out how to do this in the new editor.

Hi Runes,

You can achieve this by the following steps.

* Insert emoticons
* Highlight the emoticons
* Click Link on editor, and you can link it to either web link or another space.

Hope it helps :)

This works in the editor, but once I save the page and refresh it goes back to being a text link and the emoticon disappears.

In editor:

After save:

What version that you are currently using? Is there any customization on your instance? Such as theme, layout, or css?

Confluence 4.2.8, stock theme and layout.

Turns out this is a bug.

Hi Runes,

Sorry for just getting back to you on this. It seems that what you are trying to referenced from the link is a page inside Confluence, and it seems it's broken. As a workaround, you could put the Web link instead of page name in the link. It will work if you put the Web link. Hope it helps!
