Moved – tips on Confluence editor and XML storage format
The pages were previously housed on the wiki associated with my book, Confluence, Tech Comm, Chocolate. That wiki is now shut down, but the tips live on!
These are the tips currently available:
- 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
- Promoting heading levels
- Searching Confluence storage format XML for content or markup
- Finding duplicate page names in Confluence
- Adding custom toolbar buttons to the Confluence rich text editor with Greasemonkey
Many thanks to Martin Cleaver at Blended Perspectives, for hosting this treasure trove of tips. And many thanks also to Graham Hannington, for all the work and insight he’s put into investigating and documenting the tips.
Looking for a Confluence wiki to play with while reading the book?
If you’re reading, Confluence, Tech Comm, Chocolate, you may want a wiki to try out the techniques described in the book. For the first 18 months after publication, a Confluence, Tech Comm, Chocolate wiki site was available for readers to experiment with. That site is no longer available. If you like, you can get a free evaluation licence from Atlassian, to experiment with Confluence.
