Configure Syntaxes

Last modified by Vincent Massol on 2021/04/06

It's now possible to easily configure the markup syntaxes that you wish to be made available to your users when writing pages, directly from the Admin UI.
We've also modified the default syntax configuration when you start with a fresh new XWiki; by default the only configured syntax is the XWiki Syntax 2.1. To add more you need to install extensions offering new syntaxes or go to the Admin UI to configure more syntaxes for those bundled by default in XWiki.

Note that the xwiki/2.1 syntax is the only configured syntax by default now (we used to also have the xwiki/2.0 syntax too but we want to incitate users to use the newest syntax). In addition when the user is an Admin and only 1 syntax is configured, a hint is given to the user to let him know he can configure more syntaxes:
