XWiki 8.2M1+

Installable with the Extension Manager


Offers an administration UI to choose the markup syntaxes that are enabled in your wiki, i.e. the syntaxes in which users can write wiki pages in.

By default, the first time you access this UI, the enabled syntaxes are the ones configured in your WEB-INF/xwiki.cfg file under the xwiki.rendering.syntaxes property. If you haven't set this property (it's not defined by default starting XWiki 8.2M1), then the only enabled syntax by default is the default syntax for your wiki (which is defined in WEB-INF/ under the core.defaultDocumentSyntax property).

The reason why the configuration defines disabled syntaxes is because when you install an extension contributing a new syntax in your wiki, we want that this syntax be enabled by default. Otherwise an Admin user would have to do it in 2 steps: install the extension and then activate the syntax.


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 following manual method, which is useful if this extension cannot be installed with the Extension Manager or if you're using an old version of XWiki that doesn't have the Extension Manager:

  1. Log in the wiki with a user having Administration rights
  2. Go to the Administration page and select the Import category
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to upload the downloaded XAR
  4. Click on the uploaded XAR and follow the instructions
  5. You'll also need to install all dependent Extensions that are not already installed in your wiki
