The Confluence wiki server will be upgraded on Saturday June 9th to version 6.8.1, starting at 10:00 am.  To prepare for this upgrade, please test your existing spaces, plugins, and macros using https://wikitemp.usask.ca .  Guests without NSIDs can log in using https://wikitemp.usask.ca/guestlogin.action.  This server has a copy of production data from April 28, 2018.  Please complete your testing by June 6th, and report any concerns to wiki_service@usask.ca.

There have been significant improvements to the Wiki application, including user interface changes.  One change is the retirement of the documentation theme, used by spaces to display a page tree on the left menu.  The page tree is now a built in option in Confluence.  Viewing spaces that use the retired theme will cause the following error:

 

This error should be fixed automatically for most spaces, but if you encounter this problem, you'll need to reset your theme and layout for your space.  Send a request to wiki_service@usask.ca with the name of your space, or follow the steps below to fix the problem.

If you encounter any problems while testing or have any concerns, please send an email to wiki_service@usask.ca.
