re: We use Confluence (along with JIRA and BitBucket Server) and it's a bit of a clusterfuck. No one really uses Confluence because it's extremely hard...

Our Confluence turned into a total clusterfuck until we realized the importance of wiki gardening. I had to put on a bit of a deletionist hat, which helped, but the real win was developing a standard page organization format for documentation. Every project is laid out in the same way, with the same type of documentation in the same place.

Since search sucks soo bad in Confluence, the rigid layout guidelines made it useful again.
