Marco Will not load after restoring from old Wiki

Hi there,

I am having a hard time figuring out what is going on with the macros in my wiki. For some reason they will not load when trying to select them from the WYSIWYG editor.

I am using the latest Debian version of xwiki, 15.0, running on tomcat 9.0.31. I am restoring the wiki database from one of my previous ones. Everything is working well, all the content from the old wiki transferred over when I imported it into the database.

When looking at the developer tools in the browser I get one error message: CKEDITOR.plugins.xwikiSelection.textSelection is undefined.

The only error message I get from the server is:
[2023-02-20 18:09:26] [info] 2023-02-20 18:09:26,574 [http-nio-8080-exec-3 -
http://localhost:8080/bin/get/CKEditor/MacroService?outputSyntax=plain&language=en&data=list&syntaxId=xwiki%2F2.1] WARN o.a.v.introspection - Deprecated usage of method [] in xwiki:CKEditor.MacroService@51,30

I am not sure if I configured CKEditor wrong or if the restoration of the database messed it up.


A few ideas:

  • did you clean your browser cache?
  • can you check the ckeditor extension you have installed, it should be org.xwiki.platform:xwiki-platform-ckeditor-plugins:15.0, and not org.xwiki.contrib:application-ckeditor-plugins
  • is the xwiki-selection CKEditor plugin disabled?

Sorry for the late response,

I cleared my browser cache, I do have the ckeditor extension installed, here are the details:


I do not get the original error messages in the developer tools in the browser any more as well
