    Description

      We just acquired a full license of Confluence, partly in order to use as a portal for each department, with links to the various resources and knowledge sources we already have in place. Being to link to them is therefore of critical importance. Most of these sources are for better or for worse in Lotus Notes databases. Unfortunately it seems Confluence doesn't currently support the notes:// protocol in links. It does not convert such links to a hyperlink and instead highlights them as errors.

      Please could we add notes:// to the list of protocols understood? There are loads of others that might be useful; I'm not sure if they're included at the moment. e.g.

      notes://
      ftp://
      etc...

      This looks very similar to issue JRA-2096, which has been resolved almost two years ago, in the oscore library. To quote Charles Miller, "Unfortunately, we couldn't use the oscore URL-locating code in Confluence, as it was incompatible with all the other stuff that needed to be done during the page->wiki conversion."
