In Confluence, when I edit manually, it's possible to add a user link by just typing "@" and then you get an autocomplete of usernames. You can then select one and Confluence creates a hyperlink for that user, nicely formatted so it stands out.
I was hoping that I could create a confluence hyperlink to a user in a Quarto document that I publish to confluence. But there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do that. I tried
[~ John Smith],
[~ john smith], etc, but nothing seems to work.
Is there a way to do it?
BTW I can, of course just create a hyperlink of the form:
But I was hoping it would be decorated like a user ref in Confluence, it’s not. Still works as a useable link though.
