confluence 4.2.1: How to access the wiki style editor?

Sooooo, yesterday we upgraded from 3.1 to 4.2.1

Annnnd, two of my ten users have now come over and said "How do I access the wiki style editor?" (e.g. the wiki markup editor)

I see the "insert wiki" option, that does not do it. When we want to copy a large formatted block or such, the real wiki editor is the answer.

Where is it? thanks!!

There is no wiki markup editor in Confluence 4. See

There is a source editor plugin if you want to edit the XHTML source but it is a different syntax altogether.


We really really miss the wiki editor.

The new editor is really nice, but it is a big step backwards to lose the wiki editor.
