    I think they want you to sign up although instructions are unclear. This is the message you will get. The license could not be verified: There is no license certificate installed for CustomWare Linking Plugin for Confluence. Judging from other reviews, this is a hassle. There are alternatives.

    UPDATE: The info message is more descriptive now.

    Hi Mike, thanks for the feedback. The add-on indeed requires a license, which can be generated for free of charge. We'll improve the info message to be more descriptive. In the meantime, if you have more feedback or are looking for something specific to solve your problem in creating links in Confluence, I'd love to hear - email me at azwandi@servicerocket.com.

    Mercy Ships is a non-profit with the largest civilian hospital ship in the world. We use Confluence as our global intranet to allow our 17 different locations to collaborate as one organization. To get the most out of Confluence, we also use Linking to link to structural content rather than pages by title.

    A useful plugin but it allows users to create cross site scripting (XSS) type exploits in your Confluence instance. For example the following can be used in a link which can then be run in the context of a visitor: test" onmousemove=window.location.assign('http://google.com/') blah="nothing

    UPDATE: This has been fixed in add-on version 3.1.2 (released 2015-08-12) and above. Thank you Stuart, for reporting this to us.

    Great so far, but what I am really really really (!) missing is being able to sort the list of the incoming links e.g. reverse the order or by creation or modification date.

    Use With Caution! Version 3.0.6 of the Linking Plugin, or more precisely the link-to, link-page and link-window macros within the Linking Plugin have on major flaw: With every page reload they will create a new entry in your database LINKS table. If you use these macros on frequently used pages and you run a big Confluence instance, the macros will create millions of link entries, and have a massive impact on performance when moving or deleting a page. It will in some cases even crash the entire Confluence server, when someone tries to remove a macro from a page and Confluence is then trying to delete millions of entries from the LINKS table. I have informed the vendor about this four weeks ago, but since it is a free plugin, they will not fix it anytime soon, due to time & resources constraints reagarding their commercialized plugins. While I understand that, I do not understand, that they have neglected to inform users about this issue. Therefore, I feel compelled to write this review. Update for Version 3.0.12: the issue seems to be fixed now.
