Blogs Macro not displaying migrated content

We recently migrated two wiki spaces from one confluence server to our main corporate server. To do this we followed the Backup| and Restore| instructions.

Once the space was restored to the new server we lost functionality of the {{blog-posts}} macro to display the existing blog posts of users in the space. New postings will display with the macro, but existing postings won't.

I guess you should perform a reindex of your confluence instance: Afterwards you will see the old and new blog posts.

Confluence Administration -> Content Indexing -> Search Index: Rebuild

We have rebuild the search index and even rebuilt it from scratch by shutting down confluence, removing the index directory, restarting confluence.

It did not work.

And if you edit/save an existing old blog post? Will this blog post be displayed in the {blog-posts} macro afterwards?

No, unfortunatly it does not display the content. I have tested this in my personal space and the macro does display all content to my blog.

I saw this once a slightly different way: When the imported material had something in either the doc or space name that was a no-no character NOW but wasn't one would be invisible in some cases, including document tree, blog, etc.

Look at the Space name, ours had a hyphen in it.


No hyphen in the name. The space key is one word so is the page name.
