I couldn’t directly find documentation regarding this - which page syntaxes support WYSIWYG editing in Xwiki?
I did some tests and it seems to work for pages using Markdown syntax, but it (mostly) does not seem to work for e.g. pages using MedaWiki 1.6 syntax.
The behaviour actually is a bit odd here:
- If you create a new article (which then has Xwiki 2.1 syntax by default), the WYSIWYG editor is opened.
- You can then switch the page syntax to MediaWiki while the CKeditor is still open and continue editing WYSIWYG.
- After saving, the page (mostly) seems to look as intended. So Xwiki somehow generated MediaWiki markup based on the information it got from the WYSIWYG editor. However, it’s not possible to open the WYSIWYG editor for the page in MediaWiki format again - after saving, only editing in text mode / MediaWiki markup mode directly seems to be possible.
3.5. In addition, the wiki text editor complains that it could not load highlighting and code completion features for the MediaWiki syntax, so I assume that’s not supported.
Of course I had a look at https://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/MediaWiki/MediaWiki%20Syntax/ and https://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/MarkdownSyntax/Markdown%20Syntax%201.2 but there does not seem to be any information regarding WYSIWYG editing.
