Confluence Markup

This section describes two types of markup found in Confluence:

  • Confluence storage format. Confluence stores the content of pages and blog posts in an XHTML-based format. Advanced users can view the storage format of a page and even edit it, provided their Confluence site is configured to allow that. See Confluence Storage Format for a description of the core elements of the storage format.
  • Wiki markup. Confluence allows data entry via a shorthand code called wiki markup. Some parts of the Confluence administration interface also accept wiki markup for defining content. For a description of the wiki markup syntax, see Confluence Wiki Markup.
Storage format and wikimarkup code examples for macros can be found in the documentation for each macro.
