Buttons and search bar in navigation bar missing

Hi all.

Suddenly the following buttons, from the top navigation bar, are not showing:

"browse", "create", "search bar".

Since I'm the administrator I know I did nothing special.

Furthermore, in the admin page, the link to the "theme settings page" is not showing (see attachement).

I'm trying to look at the log but it seems to me that everything is ok.

Someone can tell me where to look or what to do?

Thanks a lot

I think you are running into this issue that David Simpson mentions on his blog.

Hi Marcello, 


It isn't just the theme button is missing, but the layout button and others as well. 

It might be related to a customization or third part plugin. You can check it enabling the Safe Mode. 

Please check this link to enable safe mode. If it works, please let us know. 

P.S.: Try just the "normal safe" mode, you don't need to do a safe mode from scratch. 


Hope it helps.

Hi Marcello, 

I believe the Davin suggestion make sense. 

Could you confirm if your License is expired? You can check it going to:

Cog Icon > License details

Hi Renato. Thanks for your reply

I've tried this:

  • enable "safe mode"
  • restart confluence

but nothing. Same all problems.

I just don't know what to do...


Yes, licence stuff (just fyi: i've found the licence info in the webpage footer).

Just renewed and now everything is ok.

Thanks a lot!
