Running JS Script on Confluence Edit View


I'm running a JS Script on Confluence adding a HTML content to modify some tables and it's working good, But I would like to run that script even when the users are editing the Confluence Page, is there a way to run the scripts on the edit view?

If yes, can you provide the documentation


2 answers

If you apply the JS to the Custom HTML section, then it will show up on every page, regardless of whether you are in view or edit mode:

Hi Stephen Deutsch,

Thanks for your answer I tried to run the script from "Custom HTML section" and I got to run the script on other views of Confluence but not on the edit view.

Any other suggestion?

I figured out how to run JavaScript only while editing a page, but it's a dirty solution I would say.

You have to edit the page layout file (page.vmd).

There you just can insert a code block like this:

#if ($mode == "edit")

 But you can't use jQuery here (I don't know why...), only pure JavaScript.
