how to create a link to new page? -

*the* most basic possible task - how ....when editing a page - does one create a link that will be to a new page.


this used to be a normal operation in Confluence, but it seems to have been removed in the new interface.


what am I missing? - the whole point of a wiki is to create a structured document.

Per, you can use the markdown link syntax with an empty URL: [My new page]() to create an undefined placeholder link. Make sure to type a space or return after that to make the editor convert the markdown into the link.

Hi @Oli_Harvey ,

Welcome to Community !

Yes, in new editor you won't see a Undefined page links (create a link to new page) and already improvement ticket is with Atlassian on this.

Please watch and vote to get further updates on that ticket.

Below is the workaround suggested by Atlassian on this.

As this is not a native feature in the new editor for now, we can keep using our undefined links by opening them on a new tab (right-clicking over the link and selecting this option, or CTRL + Right Click / COMMAND + Right Click).

To insert an undefined link on a page with the new editor, create a link with this address:



thanks Avinash. I have voted, however probably won't watch as the company I work for are now most unlikely to go ahead with Confluence.
