Missing in new editor -- Create an undefined page link

What is the new procedure for creating an undefined page link?

This process does not work in the "new" editor.

Create an undefined page link

  1. Choose Insert > Link or press Ctrl+K on your keyboard.
  2. Choose Advanced.
  3. Enter the name of the page to be created in the Link field.

A link to an undefined page is shown in dark red while in the editor. When anyone clicks the link, Confluence will create a new page with the name you typed in the Link field.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for contacting us. Unfortunately, creating an undefined link to a placeholder is not possible in the new editor at this time.

There's a handy table on our Confluence Cloud Editor Roadmap where you can compare the differences between the new and old editor, and which features you can expect to see return.

According to this table, we do not have plans to include this feature, but there's still a feature request for it below where you can provide your input:

  • CONFCLOUD-67129 Link to an undefined page (a page that doesn't exist yet)

Let me know if you have any questions about that.



Missing this feature is honestly the tipping point for me considering shifting to Notion at this point.

Being able to just type [new page here] and then finish editing document and click on [new page here] was how we created hyperlinked documents, which is core use-case for Confluence.

Bemused this has been removed.
