Can I get "unknown macros" to work in Confluence 6.0.3?

We converted Confluence 3.5.7 to Confluence 6.0.3.  The {anchor} macros from 3.5.7 aren't supported in 6.0.3, as well as {table}, {td}, and {tr} macros that were created when we converted FrameMaker documentation to Confluence 3.5.7.

Can anything be done in 6.0.3 to make thse macros work?

Not really, you need them converted to internally supported macros.

You might want to try creating user macros to replace them, but I'm not sure they'll give you everything you had before.

Hi Nic!  Thanks for your reply.  Do you know how, for example, an {anchor} macro from 3.5.7 could be converted to a 6.0.3 anchor?  That would be a great solution.  

There's no direct conversion that I know of, but a user macro called {anchor} with body content and formatting for a link might get you closer (at least there won't be error messages and you'll see the link)
