    More details

    Whenever you search in Confluence, your search term gets highlighted in the search results page's preview. But once you click on a result to see the actual page the highlighting is gone. No more!

    Highlight Search Result for Confluence does exactly what it claims: it highlights your search terms on the page itself. It uses the HTML5 Tag for styling, will add a yellow background to the search terms. Once you found what you were looking for, a quick reload of the page will get rid of the highlighting.

    • Works out of the box – no configuration needed
    • Uses plain HTML and respects your browser's settings
    • Fulfills the requirements of feature-request CONFSERVER-6174
    • Did we mention it's free?

    We were looking to fill in the obvious gaps in Confluence search and found this plugin. It works very well to highlight on the page where your search terms were found, a large time saver that results in more willingness to actually use the system as intended. However, this currently only works on pages, not documents, so its benefit depends on the content of your sites.

    Hi Eric,

    thank you for your review - we really appreciate it!

    We'll take a look if it's technically possible to also include documents in the highlighting.

    I cannot log into the Atlassian page it just spins. I can't reply to your email so I'm stuck. I've tried multiple browsers and even different networks and when I try to log in it only spins and never does anything. I wish there was a way to communicate about this issue without trying to log into a page that does nothing.

    Hi Michael,

    Update 12.06.2019:

    We are happy to announce that our App is now compatible with Confluence > 6.14. Please check it out and give us feedback.We could also solved the login problem, which was related to a Bug in an older Service Desk version: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JSDSERVER-6059.

    ====

    Edit & Update:

    Confluence version 6.14 brought major changes to the search bar, including having actual search results instead of merely suggestions. At this point, Highlight Search Result for Confluence does not yet hook into that new overlay results page. We are working on it, but for the time being have capped the supported versions at 6.13.2.

    ====

    Thank you again for your feedback – we are always glad to hear from users of our products.

    I am very sorry, that our service desk does not seem to work for you. Unfortunately, I could not reproduce that problem.

    Instead of using the service desk you (or anyone else really) can also email us at plugins@codecentric.de.

    As for the effect you originally encountered: You're right, this app currently will not create highlights, when a user clicks on the suggested pages you get from Confluence when entering something in the search box. The reasoning is, that these suggestions are not really results of a search, but much rather pages that have your search term in the title. For example, if I type 'JavaScript' into the search box here at codecentric, Confluence suggests those six pages that have JavaScript in the title. However, if I perform a full-text search (i.e. click on the magnifying glass), I get 500+ pages in the results list. Clicking on any of those pages, will highlight the search term.

    I understand that your (and I believe Yvan's) expectation was different. I will update the apps' description and we will check internally, whether it makes sense to change the current behavior.

    Thanks again, for providing us with your feedback!

    Plugin has been setup but does not work out of the box like said in overview. No highlight on pages opened from search. Yes you mention it's free, maybe for this reason no QA were done ? As there is no support what can be done ? Could this be a conflict with another app ?
