Download Move Comment Confluence Plugin FREE

How did i know about this plugin?

One of my colleagues mentioned to me about a Confluence Plugin that we can use to Move a wiki page comment to other page or convert it to a wiki page itself. And interesting thing is that if you move a comment, its child comments also get moved. It was quite useful plugin for Confluence users.

How does it work?

Check below screen shot and you will see that how a new Move link is added to each comment.

And when you click on this Move link, it takes you to a page where it asks you about the wiki space and page where you want to move it. You can even check the Create new page checkbox if you want to convert this comment as a new wiki page. That's really useful.

Is it FREE now?

Obviously, No. When i searched for this plugin, i reached where i got this plugin URL:

This plugin is NOT FREE anymore. It was built by Adaptavist and they love plugins. That's why, they are not offering it free anymore. ;) This URL now redirects you to which allows you to download the plugin but on Try or Buy basis. This was not an option for me. I wanted the free version they were offering in the past.

It's FREE for you. Download now

I googled but did not find any old download links for that plugin. All of them were redirected. However, thanks to Google, i did manage to find an old download link from adaptavist website: (looks like they forgot to redirect this one)

So, you can download from above link and in case if Adaptavist reads this blog post and redirect that link as well, you may download it from here.

Best of luck!

Evaluating paid apps on App Store is troublesome

I bought an iPad recently and spent some time on App Store reviewing apps. I liked few apps but there was no way i could test them without first paying for them. For example, i bought an app yxplayer and after it's installed, i found that it's quite buggy. It has too many issues like:
  • Video is not synced with audio
  • Playing videos directly through Samba server (from NAS) is very slow
  • Video quality is not good
In short, i bought a bad app but i had to pay for it first. It's very bad. Apple should devise some mechanism that can allow users to first install the app and then decide whether they want to to buy it or not. It will save our money.

If you are looking for a video player for iPad that can play any video format, try OPlayer HD. It also offers a Lite version which is free but offers the same features as that of full version. It works great and video quality is also awesome. Just a tip for App Store users, when you need some app, always look for a FREE app first. I'm sure, you will find some free apps that can do what you want.

FIX: Unable to render embedded object: File (file-name) not found

We are using Confluence v3.3 and were noticing a strange error: Unable to render embedded object: File (file-name) not found on Wiki pages sometimes while inserting images. I tried renaming file names and it did work sometimes but it failed some other times as well  because i kept noticing such error messages on wiki pages. So, i was looking for a FIX to it.

I googled and found this where Atlassian has shared that it's a Known Issue because of a feature CamelCase Links in Confluence. So, disable this feature and it would fix the issue for you.

To disable/enable CamelCase Links feature in Confluence, you can check It helped us and i hope it would be useful for others too so, thought to share it. :)

How to move a Wiki Space from one Confluence instance to another?

I have been asked many times by my colleagues about how to move a wiki space from one Confluence instance to another. So, here are the steps to do that:

What if the versions of source and destination Confluence instances don't match?

If the versions of Confluence in both instances don't match then first step is to know the Build Number of the Confluence where you want to restore the wiki space. You should check its Build Number (based on your Confluence version) from Once you know the build number, follow below steps:
  • Unzip the exported ZIP file
  • Open file
  • Change buildNumber=XXX (where XXX is the build number for your destination confluence version)
  • Save the file
  • ZIP the files again and use this updated ZIP file to restore the wiki space. 

Atlassian doesn't guarantee about this approach but it's the ONLY solution and it has always worked for me.
