view whole page as wiki - Confluence 4.0


I might be missing something here - but how do we now view the entire page as a wiki editor?

The issue I have is that I have two tables that I want to combine and a straight cut and paste of the tables only puts into the on column - I used to get around this by editing via the wiki markup view... but can't for the life of me see where to go for it...

Hi Grant,

Starting in Confluence 4.*, content in Confluence is no longer stored in wiki markup format, it is now stored in XHTML-based format, which is why you're not able to access the wiki markup tab.

You can still create content in wiki markup by selecting the wiki markup screen in Insert > Wiki Markup while editing a page. Alternatively, you can make use of the Source Editor plugin that allows users to view and edit the underlying storage format for a Confluence page.

I also suggest that you take some time to read the Confluence 4.0 Editor - What's Changed for Wiki Markup users page that is ideal for people that were used with the wiki markup editor.

Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns.
