Where is the Conflence HTML Marco?


I saw some conflence demo with capability to include a HTML content.



However, I don't see HTML marco in my confluence installation.

Isn't HTML marco part of default Confluence feature?

thank in advance

The HTML macro is disabled by default, as it can be used to exploit your instance.

If you wish to enable it, and have system administrator permissions on your instance, then see https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Enabling+HTML+macros


Hi Mark.....thank you very much.

Have you checked if you have it enabled ?

To enable the HTML macros:

  1. Choose the cog iconat top right of the screen, then chooseConfluence Admin.
  2. ChoosePluginsin the left-hand panel. This will display the installed plugins active for this Confluence installation.
  3. Choose Show System Pluginsto display bundled plugins.
  4. ChooseConfluence HTML macros, then chooseEnable.
  5. ChooseManage plugin modulesto see the list of modules in the plugin.
  6. Ensure that thehtml (html-xhtml)module is enabled.



Hi Daniel,

It works now. I miss step 5 in my previous test. that's why I can't see HTML marco.

thank you very much.
