Attachments Macro In Confluence Not Showing Thumbnail Preview for PNG's

Mike McCulloch Jul 11, 2017

I'm in Confluence and using the attachments macro on a page. I checked the "Show Previews" option but the thumbnails are not showing for me on the page. I only have PNG's on the page. How do I get the previews to show up?

Hello Mike,

There is currently a known bug in Confluence where the attachment thumbnails are not displaying when viewing the page itself:


However, when viewing the preview of the macro in edit mode, you will be able to see the thumbnail.

To workaround this issue, you can click the Preview button below the version number when expanding the macro.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Kind Regards,

Hi, I was wondering if this issue is going to be resolved soon? I am creating a page in confluence with  list of images to download, but it is pretty difficult to see which one is which without thumbnails. Judging by JIRA ticket mentioned above, this issue has been raised two years ago. Thanks heaps!

Hi Anara, 

At this stage we do not have any further updates, but it's best to follow along the bug ticket rather than this thread. Any updates will be posted to that bug ticket.
