Before trying to edit an entry make sure that you have page edit permissions.

You probably have already written your first Diary entry. That's great! Let's now have a look at how to edit an entry.

Using the in place editing mechanism

The Diary has a feature which allows you to easily edit the content of your entries while viewing the page. Simply hover over the entry you want to edit and click on the pencil icon.

An editor will be loaded in place of the entry and will be filled with its content.

After you are done editing your entry you can save it by either pressing "ctrl+s" or clicking the save button.

Editing entries using the page editor

As entries are just ordinary page content you can actually edit them using the page editor too! To enter page edit mode press "e" or click on the Edit button in the top right hand corner of your page.

When in edit mode your Diary will look like this:

In here you can not only edit the content of your entries, but also their date and time as well as their authors.


So editing entries is just as easy as creating them, don't you think? And if you're using the in place editing mechanism it's also just as quick!

You are on your way to become a Diary expert! The next step would be learning how to delete an entry.




Beware! Should you break an entry (for example by deleting its author or setting its time to something invalid like 24:53) the entry will not be rendered anymore when viewing the page.


Note that since everybody who has page edit permissions can edit the entry table, they can also edit your entries using the in place editing mechanism.


Note that if you edit an entry via the in place editing mechanism there will be a message about it on the updates stream of your Confluence. This also includes a short preview of what you have written.
