I am trying to make my Confluence URL simplified. For example my current set up is http://myconfluence.com/display/KB/Knowledge+Base+Home. Is there a plugin or a way to rewrite all pages to something much more simple like, http://myconfluence.com/Knowledge+Base+Home?
My server is on Apache Tomcat so Im not sure if mod_rewrite could do this?
You are right, you can do it using mod_rewrite.
I believe the code below will help to do what do you want. Just remember to enable the mod_rewrite on your Apache. After, create a .htaccess. on your root directory with this code:
RewriteRule ^display/KB/Knowledge+Base+Home(/.*)?$ display/Knowledge+Base+Home/$1
Now, restart your apache and test it.
I hope it helps.
Thanks for the reply Renato. However my server is Apache-Tomcat and not just Apache. My understanding is that Apache-Tomcat will ingore .htacess files.
Also your above example only rewrites the current article "Knowledge Base Home". Is there a way to automatically rewrite all articles when posted instead of manually having to rewrite them?
Tomcat doesn't really support any form of rewrites, so Renato is effectively suggesting that you place Apache in front of your Confluence to do it. Also, Confluence does not support these rewrites - you're going to have a lot of "fun" trying to persuade them to work smoothly.
