Attachments, links, {quote} or {noformat} markup does not work in the text or comment fields, for example:

Causes & Resolution

If the description Wiki Renderer is not working properly, here are three basic things that we need to check:

  1. Check in your field configuration, make sure the field is using the 'Wiki Style Renderer'. As shown:

  2. You should check if the text formatting matches the notation guide, as an example for 'Images' you need to follow this notation:

    As we can see from the Symptoms screenshot, you may need to check spelling and the case used:

    • 'Ico.JPG' need make sure it is 'I' and not 'L' for the first letter.
    • 'mio.JPG' Is the name correct? Should it be Mpo.JPG instead?
    • Note: This is case sensitive. e.g.  'JPG' or 'jpg'.
  3. If the  {quote} or {noformat} or 'html' does not work, you need to check via  JIRA Administration > Add-ons > Manage add-ons > System add-ons: Wiki Renderer Macros Plugin. Are seven of the eight modules (for version 1.0) enabled? The html module is not necessary for the wiki markup feature to be enabled.
