We are still fairly new to Confluence. One of the main purposes in using Confluence was to create a digital product manual that can be easily kept up to date using the wiki. However, there were lots of edits and comments made (when we didn't really know what we were doing) in the current version we would like to be public that we don't want to be visible.
In order to fix this, one of our team members attempted exporting the space and re-importing it into a new Space, but all of the links still link to the former space. How can we fix this easily without having to manually change all of the links? Additionally, the "Related Topics" macro at the bottom of all the pages had to be manually edited to link to the correct page and we don't want to have to re-do all that work if we can help it.
What solutions are there?
Thank you for your help!
Hi @Jana Rasmussen ,
Confluence is a great tool for collaborating and keeping content up to date, but there are use cases such as yours where you do not want all the edits and comments available to your readers. This is where the Atlassian Marketplace can help, there are a range of cool add ons such as Comala Publishing that can help you publish content to a public space (and fix those links at the same time!), you can also combine Comala Publishing with Comala Document Management if you want to implement a document workflow to approve content prior to publishing.
You may be interested in some case studies of customers that have used our apps to develop knowledge bases for both internal and external use.
All the best

None of us REALLY know what we're doing in Confluence, we're just learning as we go. 😉
The space copying approach is the only app-less approach I can think of. And sadly, it's not without its faults. That was the approach my team used for a while, until we felt the pain enough to look for another solution.
I think Comala Publishing is a great choice to give you readers a Confluence view of your Product Manual without the information about comments and edits. 👍🏻
If you'd like something more like a help center site, maybe check out my team's app Scroll Viewport. With it, you can write content in one or more Confluence spaces and publish them out as a help center. There is a customizable theme around your content, and no comment or page change information is included. You can check out a few examples here: https://www.k15t.com/rock-the-docs/publishing/publish-your-content-as-a-help-center-with-scroll-viewport
