Confluence 4 editor, wiki markup and XML storage format – tips from an expert
Graham Hannington is a Confluence fundi. He has steeped himself in the new “XHTML-based” storage format, bent the Confluence 4 editor to his will, and resurrected wiki markup in ingenious ways.
Graham has recently started adding his findings to this wiki: Advanced Confluence Tips. Here are the hints he has shared to date:
- Bypassing the Confluence rich text editor interface
- Converting Confluence rich text editor content to wiki markup
- Converting Confluence storage format XML to wiki markup
- Editing Confluence pages in an external validating XML editor
- Validating Confluence XML storage format
- Showing tag names and some attributes in the Confluence rich text editor
A huge thanks to Graham, for sharing the results of his indepth investigation and design work!
