pasting a link from plain text

I'm looking to copy and paste from plane text some links.  I tried something that looks like:


[my link text|]


But that just pastes literally and makes the url a link.


I even tried copying/pasting everything up until the closing bracket, but it still make the url the link.  And I tried typing the open bracket, then pasting everything until the closing bracket, and then typing the closing bracket. That didn't help either.


I also tried copying:


<a href="">my link text</a>


But then I just ended up with html.


I have about 80 links that I need to copy and paste in scattered locations across my Confluence pages, so it'd really help being able to copy and paste the links.

Hi @Matt Coarr 

If I understand you correctly, you just want to paste a link with a normal text.

You can absolutely use the wiki markup, but then you have to insert it especially like shown in the printscreens.



Otherwise you can just type "my link text", mark it and click the link icon in the menu bar. This will open a window, where you can add your adress like this: web_link.png


Hope this helps for you
