Confluence 4.0 wiki edit menu


Why I can't find in Confluece space edit menu such tab's as in 3.4.6 (rich text, wiki markup, preview)

In 4.0 isn't possible to view my text in wiki markup?

No, wiki markup has been removed in favor as the more enhanced richt text editor.

See the release notes:

The main point of version 4 was that Atlassian were killing off wiki markup.

Damn, this kills my idea to copying in the handful of pages we've written in the 3.5 staging to the 4.0 production Confluence. We only have one space, but it's failing to import. Any ideas on the best way to approach this?

You can still use the Confluence Remote API to import content that is in Wiki markup - they will get migrated to XHTML on the way in.

Confluence 4 also has a built-in migration task for upgrading content from wiki markup to XHTML - if you can post some details on why your space import is failing, someone may be able to help. :-)
