The UNECE wikis operate using software called Confluence. On 17th December 2012 we upgraded to version 4.3.1 of this software.
How does the change affect me?
This depends on how you usually use the UNECE wikis.
- If you just visit pages and read content or download attached documents, you will barely notice any changes, except that the wikis will look a little bit more modern and it may be easier to find the things you are looking for.
- If you are a more active user who writes comments, edits text, etc., you will notice some changes in the text editing functions. See the information below.
- The most advanced users, who are familiar with using wiki markup including macros, will find that the editor has changed quite significantly. Using wiki markup is now entirely optional, and macros are chosen from a drop-down list.
Hate the new editor? Can't cope without wiki markup?
- We all struggle with change. If you really loved using wiki markup and can't survive without it, retrofit your shiny new upgrade by using this Greasemonkey script which will add a wiki markup button to your Confluence editor.
