When adding links to content in Confluence, it is highly recommended that you use the Insert link icon. This will allow you to use the Confluence link functionality that offers a number of benefits over copying-and-pasting page URLs:

  • Linked content remains linked regardless if a page is moved to a different spot in Confluence
  • Automatically generates link text (i.e. page title)
  • Allows you to search for content to link to rather than having to navigate to content for the needed URL

Using the Insert link functionality is very easy.

  1. While editing a page, select the Insert link icon.


  2. Type the title of the page you wish to link to in the search bar. Autocomplete choices will appear.



  3. Select the desired page and update the Link text entry if necessary.
  4. Select the Insert icon. Your link will appear in the page.
