Wikis are a great tool for creating documentation. It’s easy to provide context in your wiki pages by creating links. In Confluence 3.2, we introduced 2 new ways to create links, focusing on making the task as fast and intuitive for end users as possible.
Smarter, smoother, faster Link Browser
The new Link Browser loads even faster and provides a more intuitive layout for new users. Launch it using a keyboard shortcut – ‘Control + K’ – or click on the ‘Insert Link’ icon in the Rich Text Editor tool bar. Four options in the left panel make creating links a breeze:
Search – Just start typing the Confluence user, page, image or file name and Confluence will suggest options as you type
Recently Viewed – Quickly create links to pages and blogs in Confluence that you have recently viewed
Attachments – Link to an image or other file that is attached to the current page
Web Link – Link to an external web page or file
Autocomplete your links
A couple of weeks ago I blogged about how creating links in Confluence has never been so fast thanks to Autocomplete. I was being serious. The video below, part of a new series of Confluence Tutorial Videos, will show you why.
