Emojis now display in table of contents macro 😀

Hello Community,

I’m Erik Gui, a frontend developer working on Confluence Cloud. I am excited to share with you a recent improvement that may add a spark to your page.  

Have you ever tried adding an emoji or custom emoji inside your headings, hit publish, but only to find that the emojis aren’t appearing inside your table of contents macro?  

Wait where did my parrot go?

Worry no more, emojis and custom emojis are now supported inside the table of contents macro! Simply add the desired emoji to your headings and they will also appear inside the table of contents!

Give it a try! Hopefully this small trick could make your pages more delightful! Stay tuned for more delightful features like this and leave any feedback below.


This appears to also pick up actual images that have been mistakenly added in-line with a heading (even though on the actual page the image and heading appear to be on separate lines). It's an easy enough fix once spotted but it appears that this frivolous change is set to create more work cleaning up existing pages.

Great catch, @Krzysztof Kot - something I would have hoped Atlassian would have found during QA :(

And now a Button to disable all emojis. In Confluence and Jira.

Great feature, thank you! Some of the prebuilt / template pages used emojis in their own construction, so it was odd to have them not appear at the top of the page with the ToC. Appreciate the addition!
