Hi Marius

I've tried to apply these changes with no luck I'm afraid.

Here are the steps I've taken:

1) Gone to Administer Wiki > Applications: WYSIWYG Editor > CKEditor and pasted 
the following below the comments in the "Advanced Configuration" box:

config['xwiki-macro'] = config['xwiki-macro'] || {};
config['xwiki-macro'].insertButtons = [
    commandId: 'xwiki-macro-html-dirty',
    macroCall: {
      name: 'html',
      parameters: {
        clean: false,
        wiki: true

2) I then went to Administration > Look & Feel : Presentation > Customise Color 
Theme > Advanced and then pasted the following CSS at the bottom:

a.cke_button.cke_button__xwiki-macro-documenttree > 
span.cke_button_icon.cke_button__xwiki-macro documenttree_icon {
  font-family: 'Glyphicons Halflings';
  position: relative;
  top: 1px;
.cke_button_icon.cke_button__xwiki-macro-documenttree_icon::before {
  content: "\e199";
  display: inline-block;
  text-align: center;
  width: 16px;

3) Edited a document and pressed Shift + F5 but nothing appeared on the toolbar.
4) Tried a different browser
5) Used Developer Tools in Chrome and can see both my changes in the relevant 
files (CKEditor/Config and skins/Flamingo/style.css)
6) I have tried different configurations from 
http://docs.ckeditor.com/#!/api/CKEDITOR.config such as config.toolbarLocation 
= 'bottom'; in step 1 above and I can see the config is being applied.

I had also already upgraded to 9.1.2 before trying to test this.

I can also see "xwiki-macro" as an available option in the "disabled plugins" 
drop down (Note that it is *not* disabled, it's just there as an option, which 
I assume is a good thing as it means the plugin is available).

Any ideas what I've missed or what else I could check please? Thanks.

Kind regards,
