I tried Confluence Universal Importer, it did not work. Why?

I am wondering if I am doing something wrong.  I followed the 3 screen shots that show how to use it and all I got was failed for all my files. Is there anything that is not detailed on the add-ons page. I have updated the add-on but it still is not working and it also does not describe where the error is coming from. I hope someone can help.

The UWC hasn't been supported since (roughly) Confluence 5, and there's usually a lot more than 3 screens to go through.

Could you tell us what version of it you are using, what Confluence it is, and what documentation you are following?

Thanks Nic for the quick response. I am using the cloud hosted Confluence version. I installed an add-on (Confluence universal importer) that is meant to import HTML files into confluence and convert them to markdown for confluence. the idea was to reduce the amount of time spent in the future editing the wiki. My Migration is from MoinMoin to Confluence.  So I have my MoinMoin wiki files saved as .html. How far am I from achieving my goal? this is a first time attempting to execute this migration. My hope is to have this completely migrated by the time I go back to college, ie end of summer. 

Ah, I see, I was thinking of an older add-on with a very similar name.

This is a very new add-on and it would seem like you're the first one to run into problems with it.  The only support link is to here, but as it was only released today, I don't there's been much time for people to get stuck into it.

If it were a server add-on, I'd be looking at the logs, but for Cloud, I think you're probably a bit stuck.

I'm sorry, I can't help, as it's not something I've used yet.
