code wiki doesnt show anymore ?


I have just installed the Confluence beta 4.02.

I have no way to see the wiki markup of a page. I can see the storage format ?? and the view source show the exact page when editing a page...

My first test, was to use a global template from a 3.4 confluence version. I can see that it still works.

So what about the old fashion wiki markup ??

Thanks for help.

There is no wiki markup in version 4.x, it's been deliberately removed. See

FYI, there does exist a plugin that will add a menu item for viewing the storage format for a page. However I believe it is only installed by default when using the Plugin SDK and the 'atlas-run' (and related) command. That said, I'm sure it exists in the Atlassian Maven repostiory, so it should be possible to track down and install in 'standalone' installations.

You can learn more about Confluence 4.0 here. We have videos, demos, tutorials and FAQs about why we are making this big change. You can still write wiki markup in the new editor and it will convert for you on-the-fly. In additon, as David said, for plugin developers you can still see the storage format.
