How Will This Affect My Wiki Space?
There may be themes, plugins, and macros used in your Wiki Space that will not be supported by version 5 of the NPS Enterprise Wiki. Please take out the time to investigate your space content to see what you might need to change prior to the upgrade.
Version 5 does not support the Easy Reader theme. If your Wiki Space currently uses the Easy Reader theme, your site and the spaces that use the theme will be automatically transferred to the default theme upon upgrade. You should check your Wiki Space(s) to see if you are utilizing the Easy Reader Theme. You might want to select another theme and update your Wiki Space accordingly. See the Plugins section below for more information.
There are many plugins that have been installed to provide greater flexibility and ease of use with your Wiki experience. This Plugin Compatibility Chart will help you keep abreast of how upgrades will affect your Wiki content in the future. If you find that a plugin you are using will not be compatible with a future upgrade, you will want to change your Wiki content accordingly.
We use macros many times to help us format our wiki content. This Macro Compatibility Chart will help you recognize how upgrades will affect your Wiki content. If you find that a macro you are using will not be compatible with a future upgrade, you will want to change your content accordingly.
Please note that any themes, plugins, or macros installed for use by the Wiki Administrators are not guaranteed to work upon future product upgrades, as these items may be developed by third-party vendors and not by Atlassian, the creators of Confluence.
If you find that you need assistance with making your current wiki content compatible with the upcoming version, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
