Site Welcome Message Error


I restored a confluence site in a new server with the setup wizard, but I'm getting an error in the Site Welcome Message (the one with in red background).

Anyone knows what may be happening or what is missing??


Thanks in advance.

You need to enable the HTML macro.  It is disabled by default for security purposes.

Sorry looked at the image again and you also have two additional macros that are missing.  Subspaces macro I believe comes from this app - and I think it is now the navigation macro.  

The other macro blog-list I am not familiar with but am wondering if it is just the blog post macro.

Hi Brant!,

thanks for the quick reply. One aditional question. Because I',m using an old version con confluence (3.0.2) it's pretty hard to find all the plugins (in the required version). You know where I can find them in the original server? is there any foldert where they are stored like in jira (/lib).

I believe that it is the lib folder but am not sure for Confluence 3.0.2.  On newer versions it could be in any of the following:

  1. The PLUGINDATA table on the database
  2. The <confluence-home>/bundled-plugins folder
  3. The <confluence-home>/plugin-cache folder
  4. The <confluence-home>/plugins-osgi-cache folder
  5. The <confluence-home>/plugins-temp folder
  6. The <confluence-install>/confluence/WEB-INF/lib folder (deprecated)

My guess is that all you have is the lib folder.

If you know what the app is you can go to the marketplace and download the old version by looking at the version history -
