Do you ever need to securely email attachments and Confluence page content to a colleague, customer or supplier? This is especially common for those working in FSA Regulated businesses such as IFAs, HR and Payroll, the Public Sector and Legal Practices. Well, with the SSLPost Document Encryption plugin you can.

The SSLPost Document Encryption plugin enables you to encrypt a Confluence page and/or any attachments and then email them securely to any recipient. The plugin just appears in the Confluence page menu, so there's no need to interrupt your workflow. You can encrypt page content in a choice of formats, such as HTML, PDF and Work or just send encrypted attachments.

The fantastic new release of Atlassian's Confluence version 4 is now available. Two years in the making, this brings about a revolution in collaboration with a brand new Rich Text editing experience, doing away with Wiki Markup. This also means a radical overhaul is now required for most of the over 400 Confluence plugins that rely on Wiki Markup to implement their functionality. Our 22 plugins are no different, with just two of those plugins (Backup Manager and Attachment Download plugins) being able to work without significant changes.

Updating our plugins will require many man-months of work. Nevertheless, we're committed to making all of our Essentials and Wiki-plus Pack plugins Confluence 4 compatible over the coming months. We don't have a fixed date for release but we will be prioritising our commercial plugins and the most popular Essentials Pack plugins.

Here's a break down of the changes:

  • The plugins can now be bought individually
  • We've adopted a licensing model like Atlassian's - something you're more familiar with
  • Prices are now set based on Confluence license size

There are some macros that I regard almost as core functionality, macros that I don't know how I would use Confluence if they weren't available to me. Here's my top 5 macros, or sets of macros, that I couldn't be without:

Theme Builder provides similar macros, builder-show and builder-hide, that are specifically for use within Builder theme panels - you can set content visibility in many of the same ways as the Visibility plugin, but also specify whether the page has a particular title, whether specified content exists, and whether it was created before or after a specified date or time period and more.

The Replace and Render plugin is available for free, as part of our Essentials Plugin Pack for Confluence. It provides a set of macros that can be used to take the output of one macro and use it as the input for another. So when it's combined with other plugins and macros, it can really help you out of a hole, enabling you to create solutions that might otherwise require bespoke plugin development.

On a regular basis via this blog, I'm going to walk you through a useful aspect of one of our Confluence Plugins. This time, I'm going to focus on the Advanced Search plugin, and its configurations functionality in particular. You will need to be experienced with Confluence and comfortable playing about with code to follow this topic.

It's taken longer than expected, but Community Bubbles v1.7.5 has now been released, bringing with it the much requested Confluence 3.5 compatibility. This means that now all but one of our Essentials Pack plugins are compatible with all versions of Confluence from 3.1 to 3.5, and we're working on that last one too.
