does anybody know if Confluence includes links pointing to external sites into the global search? We have the problem that we try to find all pages with links to certain pages on them and search for www.site.com and www?site?com return 0 hits.
Thanks in advance.
I tested again more deeply, and found the following (without real documentation by Atlassian, only some issues that lead to that):
A pretty interesting topic. Here are some references:
I have the same problem here. We are migrating content from HTML to Confluence wiki pages by using copy / paste. After having pasted, you have to remember to replace all links directed to the old links (with real URLs) by new links pointing to (perhaps non-existing) wiki pages. If you forget to replace one of them, how do you find that wrong link then? There should be a way to do that.
That's true! In confluence version 4.3.7 the search string like "http\://some.page/" worked fine and returnet a whole bunch of pages.
But at least in the new version 5.5.4 (I've tested only this) it is not working at all! No page is found!
Is this a feature or simply a bug? In my opinion some functionality has dissapeard without a notice and reason!
Unfortunately after 3+ years, still no fix!
