Wiki Markup is a typical "Tagging" language. It is made up of a series of "tags" that surround text and tell Confluence how to display it. For example, to bold the words "This is my Name." you would enter

No Format

*This is my name.*

in the Wiki Markup window. The page would then display:

This is my name.

A quick notation guide, Notation Help, appears beside the edit screen when you choose the Wiki Markup edit tab. This quick guide displays common Wiki Markup tags. You can also click the full notation guide link in the help window to view the full Notation Guide. This shows you the entire list of formatting and other complex operations that Confluence's notation permits, along with the markup detailing how to perform them.

An attachment is any file that is included with your page. Images, Word documents, presentations, PDFs, multimedia and sound files are some examples of attachments. Attachments are useful when you want to share information that exists in another file format.

When you attach a file to a page, Confluence makes a copy of the file and stores it on the server. File attachments in Confluence are listed in the 'Attachments' tab of a page.

You can insert HTML image attribute tags into Wiki Markup using the syntax:

No Format

!imagefilename|tag="value"!
!DidYouKnow.gif|title="Did You Know"!

Available codes are:

  • align — available values are 'left','right', 'bottom', 'center', 'top'.
  • border — specify the width of the border (in pixels).
  • bordercolor — use this with the 'border' tag to specify the colour of the border.
  • hspace — specify whitespace to be inserted to the left and right of the image (in pixels).
  • vspace — specify whitespace to be inserted above and below the image (in pixels).
  • width — specify the width of the image (in pixels).
  • height — specify the height of the image (in pixels).
  • title — specify alternative text, displayed when the pointer hovers over the image
  • alt — specify alternative text, which is included in the HTML code.

  • Page Details:
    Title, author, date of creation, date of last modification and the tiny link of the page.

    Parent-child relationships of the page.
  • Page Permissions:
    Whether there are any page-level security restrictions that apply to the page.
  • Recent Changes:
    Links to the five most recent versions of the page along with the name of the editor and the date of modification.
  • View History:
    All the versions of the page in reverse chronological order, with an option to compare versions or to restore a previous version. Image Added Image Removed

Page Restrictions

Page restrictions allow you to control who can view or edit individual pages. You can set the page restrictions when editing a page, using menus below the text-entry box. Users can only view page or space content for which they (or a group they are in) have 'View' permission. Pages that a user does not have 'View' access to are referred to as 'inaccessible' pages.  

  • Viewing Restrictions
    • Setting viewing restrictions makes pages "invisible" to users who do not have permission to view the page
  • Editing Restrictions
    • Setting editing restrictions allows anyone with access to the space to "see" that the page exists, but prevents them from seeing or editing the content of the page
