We use the deck/card macros to create tabs on our pages and this has been working okay on 3.5.16. However we are testing out new upgrade 4.3 and the pages dont render these macros as before. This is a huge blocker we have over 1000 pages that use this macro, updating them manually is not feasible. I raised this issue with Customware and they mentioned to me that the issue is with the Confluence upgrade translation.
The links below further explain the problem and the issue does not seem to be with this 3rd party plugin but rather how Confluence translates the deck/card..wiki
Have you tried surrounding the entire deck/card markup with the wiki macro from Wiki Plugin for Confluence ? I would expect this to revert to the Confluence 3.x behavior. If this does work, then there are ways to automate adding this to pages using How to automate adding text to Confluence pages or similar. Of course you need to do this on Confluence 3.x BEFORE the page gets migrated.
Check to see if the name of your decks have any spaces in them. If they do, remove them and see if that makes a difference. There might also be a problem with special characters, so I recommend removing those as well just in case.
To test this you don't need to go through the whole upgrade again, just change your wikimarkup and then paste it into Confluence 4 using the insert wiki markup option.
