Does the tiny link or URL always include /x/ ?

Hi, does the tiny link or tiny URL to a page always include /x/ ? Or are other characters sometimes used?

A developer asked me if there was a way to link back to a Confluence page in code comments and if the URL could be shorter. If the part of the tiny link that follows the /x/ is the part that's unique....

Example /x/1YQkRw

Unique characters are 1YQkRw seems a developer could include just the unique characters in a code comment to be able to refer to a specific wiki page. Sorta like Google Maps unique location codes.

But, if the /x/ part is sometimes different, then the whole /x/1YQkRw string would need to be used.

And yes of course, they could also use the unique page ID number (such as 1193875434).

Hi @Michelle Rau - I have yet to see a tiny url /x/ is different character. I went ahead and checked several pages on my end and I haven't encounter something different.

That is good to know. I didn't know if it indicated a type of page, or a type of permission.
