This page tells you how to add a link to a Confluence page from within another Confluence page, using the Wiki Markup editor. Note that you can use the Rich Text editor instead.

Linking to a Confluence Page

In Wiki Markup, links are denoted by square brackets. Whenever you place text between square brackets, Confluence recognises it as a link.

You can display your own text instead of the page name: Inside the square brackets, insert the required text followed by a vertical bar and then the page name. The second example below shows this.

In the above examples, 'Confluence User Guide' is the name of the page you want to link to.

Using an Undefined Link to Create a Page

In Confluence, you can add a link which points to a page that you intend to create later. You might also use such a link to prompt other Confluence users to create pages. This type of link is called an undefined link.

To add an undefined link for later creation of a page,

  1. Add a link, specifying the name of a page which does not exist. See example below.
  2. Save the page which contains the undefined link. Confluence indicates undefined links by colouring them red.
  3. When you (or another user) click on the link, the 'Add Page' screen appears.
  4. You can then follow the steps outlined above to enter the page name, add content and save the page.

Here is an example of an undefined link:

You can also create a link to any Confluence page by clicking 'Insert Link' when you are editing a page. A popup screen allows you to select pages from anywhere within Confluence. Selecting a page creates a link to that page.
