{html} macro not working?

I've enabled the HTML macro in Confluence 5.1.2 but it doesn't seem to be working. What I mean by that is that when I type {html}, the wiki markup macro opens and I cannot get the HTML macro to be recognised.

I've *definitely* got "Confluence HTML Macros" enabled.

Thanks - that was it. It might be better if the UI made it a *bit* more obvious that not all of the modules were enabled.

But thanks for helping me get it working.

Even having the "Confluence HTML Macros" enabled, could you please check if all modules of this Macro are enabled as well?

Could you please help to explain more about "all modules"? I got the same issue but don't know how to fix.


Thanks a lot


When you open up the list of installed plugins, find the Confluence HTML Macros plugin and click on the little > symbol on the left hand side to expand the pane. You'll see "x of y modules enabled" on the right hand side. Highlighted in this screenshot:


If you click on the + sign, that will list out all of the modules:


You can then hover the mouse pointer over any of the disabled ones and an Enable button appears.
