Null pointer after upgrade to confluence 5.5

Hi Guys


I recently upgraded to confluence 5.5 from 4.3.and after the upgrade i am receiving these errors.

How can i get rid of them?

I have tried disabling the Composition plugin and upgraded and then re-enabled it but it has not fixed it.

Any suggestions ?

Error formatting macro: deck: java.lang.NullPointerException
Error formatting macro: card: java.lang.NullPointerException

Hi Rahul,

Maybe you have some unsupported wikimarkup macro in your instance.

Can you go to <confluence_url>/admin/console.action and update your content in the 'Update content with incompatible upgraded macros' section?

That way you will force their upgrade to XHTML.

You can gather more information in the following documentation:
