Widget Connector

 Can I extend the Widget Connector to support more sites than are currently supported?

Yes. We will be providing instructions shortly on how to do this. Our Widget Connector documentation can be found here.

 Is possible to embed content that needs authentication with the widget-connector?

Some widget providers provide a token in the url that can be used to retrieve the content. If the widget provider supports this, then you can embed secure content with the Widget Connector.

Custom Styles

 Are you going to offer any custom stylesheets for download?

Yes. You can find a sample stylesheet in the Confluence Plugin Library under Themes and Styles. You can also learn more in our Basic Styling Tutorial.

Office Connector

 Does the office connection make it easier to send documents FROM office to the wiki?

Yes. One of the things the Office connector does is allows you to import documents from Word and convert them into Confluence pages. You can see more at

 Does the office connector also support edit of documents?

Yes. You can edit documents within MS Office, OpenOffice or NeoOffice.

 Does the Office connector support office 2007 documents?
  • The Office Connector bundled with Confluence 2.10 does not currently support native Office 2007 documents (e.g. .docx, .xlsx, .pptx) in Confluence 2.10.
  • However, we are planning to provide this support in the next major release (currently planned Confluence 3.0 for first half 2009).
  • In the mean time, Office 2007 allows you to save your files to the Office 2003 format (e.g. .doc, .xls, .ppt).
 Does Office Connector work with Vista?
 Does the Office Connector support saving from Office 2008 for Mac to Confluence directly?

  • We are planning to provide this support in the next major release (currently planned Confluence 3.0 for first half 2009).
  • We do currently support NeoOffice for Mac.
 Does the office connector work when hosted on linux?
  • Yes.
 Does / will the Office Connector support Visio?
 Does / will the Office Connector support Open Document Format (ODF)?
 If you use the Office Connector plugin and include wiki markup in a Word document, will it display correctly when viewed in Confluence? For example, links to other wiki pages?
  • Most wiki text is displayed correctly. Your particular example, links to other pages, are not.

Rich Text Editor

 Do you support Google Chrome or plan to in the future?

As Google Chrome is built on Webkit, the same engine as Safari, the Rich Text Editor should work on Chrome. However, we have disabled it until we can test it further, possibly in 2.10.1 or 3.0.

JIRA Issues Macro

 Can I display custom colums in the JIRA issues macro?

Any column, including custom columns, can now be displayed. Use the name of the custom field in the value of your columns argument to the macro. See the documentation for more detail...


 We are currently using version X.X. How is the upgrade path and difficulty?
 Do you know if the Scaffolding plugin is compatible with 2.10?
  • Yes, we tested it with 2.10. There was a bug fixed by the Scaffolding team, so check if you need to upgrade Scaffolding too.
 Do I need any specific system requirement to support 2.10 features?

We change the system requirements over time. Before each upgrade you need to check if your software/hardware is still supported. Documented in general here: and for 2.10 here:

 Are there any plans for making upgrades easier?

We want to make upgrades easier. We are introducing Plugins 2.0 for a long-term improvement of the situations (plugins will be written against a better defined, more stable API), and our new QA team is also testing many popular plugins for general compatibility with new Confluence versions. We have started this for the 2.10 release, and will extend that process over time

 Is theme builder compatible with 2.10

Yes, Adaptavist has released a new version recently. 3.3.2 is compatible, according to their website/Twitter.
