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

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.
