  • Editing templates still requires the use of wiki markup language


The rich text editor is only available for pages, blogs and comments in Confluence 4.2 and below. There are still several places in Confluence that still have a text-only editor accepting only wiki markup.


Use wiki markup to edit templates.

The ability to create and edit templates in the rich text editor is available in Confluence 4.3.
