Introduced as separated extension in  7.1 and moved to contrib in 8.0.

Installable with the Extension Manager


XWiki Syntax 1.0 is deprecated since XWiki 2.x and this module is only provided as retro compatibility tool. If you really need to use this module it's a very bad sign on your side.

Only included as a legacy package since 7.1 and moved to contrib in 8.0.

This module contains everything needed and installable as extension to render xwiki/1.0 syntax.


The XWiki Syntax 1.0 was supporting Radeox macros. Find below documentation for the macros that were bundled with the old Rendering engine:


The following configuration options are available and can be added to your WEB-INF/xwiki.cfg configuration file:

# XWiki Syntax 1.0 Rendering Engine

#-# Disable particular renderers.
#-# Macro mapping
# xwiki.render.macromapping=1
#-# Velocity interpreter
# xwiki.render.velocity=1
#-# Groovy interpreter
# xwiki.render.groovy=1
#-# Plugin rendering
# xwiki.render.plugin=1
#-# Radeox wiki renderer
#-# Simple wiki syntax rendering
# xwiki.render.wikiwiki=0

#-# [Since 2.4M1]
#-# Rendering order: content will be rendered by the first renderer on the list, output rendered by the second, etc.
#xwiki.render.renderingorder=macromapping, groovy, velocity, plugin, wiki, wikiwiki

#-# Maximum number of documents to keep in the rendered cache
# xwiki.render.cache.capacity=100

#-# Default target for external links. Use _blank to open external links in a new tab/window.
# xwiki.render.externallinks.defaulttarget=

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the manual method which involves dropping the JAR file and all its dependencies into the WEB-INF/lib folder and restarting XWiki.


Dependencies for this extension (org.xwiki.platform:xwiki-platform-oldrendering 7.5.3):
