Twiki MAKETEXT macro conversion

I am trying to convert a twiki wiki to confluence.

The importer completes successfully but on the page i do see that

%MAKETEXT{"Available Information"}%

instead of

Available Information

which is what i see in twiki.

Any help would be beneficial.

Thank you,

Sounds like you have a type of twiki markup that there isn't currently a converter for.

I'm hearing that maybe you want instances of


to be turned into


which is confluence bold syntax.

If that's the case, you could try adding (untested, but should work) the following converter to your file\{\"(.*?)\"\}{replace-with}*$1*

Here's a checklist to help you think through all the different syntax challenges.


Thank you Laura and Ellen.

Does UWC remove Twiki related page data during conversion?



Well, yes? The UWC transforms source wiki data to confluence style data with the general goal of maintaining the underlying meaning of syntax and metadata, if possible. As an example, twiki and confluence color macro syntax is very different, so the idea is that the twiki syntax that indicates color would be removed and replaced with something that Confluence can render.
