      Description

      NOTE: This suggestion is for Confluence Server. Using Confluence Cloud? See the corresponding suggestion.

      Would like to make it more convenient for tiny links to be used. Tiny links have the advantage of being more stable for linking to confluence pages from other places (like JIRA). Confluence does a pretty good job of re-directing old page names to new page names, but it is still adds extra steps to follow the links. The nice thing about tiny links is that they survive refactoring of page names. An example is using Confluence for program documentation and including links in JIRA issues and source code. In particular, the smaller link is more convenient.

      I have customized .../pages/page-breadcrumbs.vm to include a small icon representing the tiny link. Something like this would make the tiny link directly accessable without going to the INFO tab page.

      #if (!$viewpagebreadcrumb)
       ...
      
      ## Customize - put an easy to access tiny link on the page as icon following page name in breadcrumb line
                  #if ($tinyUrl)
                      <a href="$helper.domainName/x/$helper.tinyUrl">
                          <img src="/images/icons/docs_16.gif" width="12" height="12" hspace="4" vspace="1" align="absmiddle" border="0" alt="Tiny link to current page." title="Tiny link to current page."/>
                      </a>
                  #end
      
      #end
