Source Editor for Confluence 5.1?

I know this is not a supported plugin, but is there any plan to update the Source Editor to work with Confluence 5.1? This plugin really is the only way to get fine control over the page formatting.

Hey Jason,

The Confluence Source Editor is supported for Confluence 5.1 and 5.1.1. For more information please refer to the following link.

Hope it helps.

Ok - I swear when I looked at it yesterday it said 5.0.3 was the latest supported version. Apparently I have other problems then... It's installed, but I'm not getting the button on the editor screen.

Ensure that the plugin is enabled after the installation finished. If it is enabled and still not helps, try to clear plugin cache and ensure that the server base url of your instance configured correctly.

Thanks Septa - that fixed it.

We have downloaded and installed the latest version manually, and have been using it without any obvious problems so far.

No guarantees, though. ;)


Why isn't this built in by default? It could be enabled/disabled based on user group if one were worried that regular users would do something stupid with it.
