I got several links from Confluence pages to external webpages. When the name of the confluence page that is linked changes, the link breaks. Any solutions?

Sure, your solution is called the “Tiny Link” and that works as follows:

The tiny link is a permanent URL. Using it ensures that the link to the page is not broken if the page name changes.

To access the permanent URL for a page:

  • View the page you wish to link to.
  • Choose Tools > Link to this page.
  • Copy the Tiny Link.
  • Use the tiny link in your website or email message.

Looks like this:
