The "Content by User" macro is missing Edited


I have 2 confluence system running with the same version, 6.4.2. I couldn't find "Content by User" macro when search in insert > other macro on 1 of my system.

The previously created of this macro showing "Unknown macro: 'content-by-user' ". May I know why it is missing in one of my system? Maybe any add-on was disabled?

ps: I tried restart confluence but it still doesn't work.


[SOLVED] found it in add-ons "Advanced macro" and expands the modules.

To fix this issue, you have to find the disabled modules inside one of the system add-ons.

Just go to Settings > Manage add-ons and filter add-ons to show out the system add-ons. Find "Advanced Macro", expands the modules and you should able to see "content-by-user" then just enable it.

Thank you, Tan!
