Source Blog and Wiki Structure

The Metalogix Content Matrix Console - Blogs and Wikis Edition site structure is relatively simple to use. Source content can be broken down into different "types" of content. These "types" include servers, sites, pages, posts, etc. Each type can be displayed through different views in Metalogix Content Matrix, depending on the type of content selected. Some types can only be displayed in certain views. A quick breakdown of what type of content can be displayed in which view is below.

Viewing a Server

Servers and sites (also known as blogs or Wikis) can only be displayed in Explorer View. Server nodes can only contain site nodes, and if the source is connected through a server node the root node is the server, and the sub-nodes are sites.

Viewing a Site

If the connection to the source has no server node the root connection is a site.

BW Site View 1

Under a server connection any sub-nodes are site nodes. Sites are only available in Explorer View, and contain wiki pages and blog posts.

Viewing Pages and Posts

Items View is recommended for working directly with pages and posts, although they  also available through the Explorer View tab (through the use of right-click menu options.

Depending on the source content some pages/posts can contain comments, attachments, discussions, and/or links. For example, a MediaWiki connection may contain a discussion associated to a page.

Viewing Page Versions

Page versions can only be viewed in Items View for source connections to Confluence, MediaWiki, and Blogger via the [Show Version History] button.

Connecting to a Source Blog or Wiki

With Metalogix Content Matrix - Blogs and Wikis Edition, you can connect to:


·RSS Feeds





·Atom Feed

·Any other blogs or Wikis that support MetaWeblog API

Connecting to Confluence

Confluence is an enterprise Wiki Content Management System (CMS).  Metalogix Content Matrix  - Blogs and Wikis Edition currently supports any versions before v.4.0 that have SOAP API version 1, and also supports versions 4.0 through to 5.1.

Known Limitation

After a connection has been made to the Confluence source, there are some scenarios where default limitations are placed on the connection. For example, Confluence connections will close by default over time. However, Metalogix Content Matrix can work around these issues by editing the keep-alive setting. For more information, see Edit Connection Settings

To connect to Confluence:

1.In the Metalogix Content Matrix Console ribbon, select Connection > Connect to Confluence to display the Connect to Confluence dialog

2.In the Server Address field, enter the desired URL value to connect to Confluence.

3.Select the appropriate Credentials option(s):

§Use default Windows credentials is only required if there is an extra layer of authentication on the web server. Enabling this check-box will pass the currently logged in user's Windows authentication credentials to the web server.

Currently, only Windows authentication is supported for this extra layer of user authentication at the web server level.

§Use Confluence credentials  allows you to specify a set of User credentials to use when connecting to Confluence.  

If the Use Confluence credentials box is not checked, no Confluence credentials will be used when trying to establish a connection unless the Use default Window credentials check-box is checked, in which case the logged in user's Windows credentials will be used instead.

If the Save password box is checked, the provided password will be encrypted and stored.

NOTE:  It is possible to connect to a source Confluence environment using Confluence's anonymous login. If a connection is made using anonymous login, the following options are disabled because the Confluence anonymous login account does not have the required access to use the above features:

§The ability to edit User Mapping is disabled.

§The ability to import User Mapping is disabled.

§The ability to map User metadata is disabled.

4.If a Proxy is being used in the Confluence environment, switch to the Proxy Settings tab and set any desired Proxy settings.
