A single page export does not allow users to export from the Bulk Export button. If the user wants to export multiple pages, export from a page that has children/sub-pages, or follow the guide below.

Export multiple pages and full page hierarchy to Markdown

You can export multiple pages as well as pages with children (page hierarchy).

  • Open a parent Confluence page → More actions (…) → Export to Markdown

  • Click on Bulk Export → Select the pages → Export.

To export blogs, it is similar to bulk exporting pages:

Confluence to GFM (GitHub Flavored Markdown)

This app has support for GFM extensions that are not in CommonMark spec. Whenever there are differences, they are mapped to closely related formatting in GFM.

1. Panels to GFM Alerts

Confluence panels are mapped to following GFM alerts. Since GitHub only has limited types, the rest of the panels default to note type.
