Autoconvert doesn't work after you paste a URL in the editor. When you paste the URL, it will just display in a second then suddenly be removed from the editor. There is no error message thrown in the UI nor in the logs. For example, when you paste to the editor, Confluence should autoconvert it to a widget connector macro like this:

However, you might see something like this instead:

Note in your browser's error console. You will be seeing error 500 on /rest/tinymce/1/macro/placeholder call:

POST 500 (Internal Server Error)


"Widget Connector" plugin is disabled or a certain module of the plugin is disabled.


Enable the "Widget Connector" plugin and ensure all the plugin modules are enabled.
