Open the More actions menu in either published or view mode. Select Redirection.

Do not use the macro. It worked via a macro in the previous version. Now it is only possible to create or edit a redirection via More actions.

How to create a new redirect or edit an existing redirect

As you type pages will be suggested.

Decide if you want to remove the deny option

The default is disabled. If you move it to enable the option to deny the redirect and stay on the page will be removed.

Note: this makes it more difficult to get to edit mode.

Option to customize message

You have the option to customize the message that the user sees when he/she arrives on the page.

This is an exact preview. The above example uses the default message. If you customize the message it will show in the preview. If you disable the Deny option the button will be removed in the preview.


Click save when you are happy with the preview.

How to delete a redirect

Clicking delete redirect will permanently erase the redirect in Confluence including all custom messages.

If you might use the redirect later a better option is to disable the redirect in Step 1. The redirect will not show for any users, but all the setting including custom message will remain. Then all you would need to do is enable the redirect.

How to get to edit mode when deny button is disabled

There is no clear way to get to edit mode if the deny button has been disabled.

Here is the workaround:

Click anywhere on the page outside of the redirect popup. Then click the esc button on your keyboard.
