Manual

Links go to Confluence, not to other pages in the export

Problem

Links go back Confluence, instead of going to other locations and pages inside the exported Word file itself.

Explanation

The linking location depends on how you've inserted your links to your Confluence page. If you've inserted a URL to a Confluence page, the link will always link to your Confluence system, no matter if the linked page is also included in your exported document.

If you want to link inside your exported document you have to link directly to the page.

Solution

In Confluence, change the links to direct page links. You can do this in several ways:

  • Click Link and Search for the corresponding Confluence page.
  • Click Link and select the page from the Recently Viewed pages.
  • Click Advanced and enter the name of the page.
  • If Scroll Versions is activated, click Browse Page Tree and select the desired page.
