Notes

Redirecting a Page to an Attachment on Another Page

It is also possible to redirect a user directly to an attachment on another page.

To do so, append a caret "^" to the page name you are redirecting to.

When a Redirect is Blocked by a Browser

On Confluence Cloud some browsers–such as Chrome–may initially block the redirect.

If that happens, the Redirect macro will alert the user with a pop-up dialog box with the link that the page was redirecting to.

 

To remove this pop-up dialog box, the user needs to click on the Pop-up Blocked icon in the address bar, and allow redirects from the Confluence site.
