Error: Details can only be used on pages or blog posts

Hello - I am trying to create a page template with several fields on it (e.g. field A, field B, field C), and would like to then list each page created via the template in a tabular format. So if I have 10 pages, I would have a column for A, B and C. When I try to do this using Page Properties macro so that I can later user Page Properties Report macro, upon previewing my page, I get "Details can only be used on pages or blog posts" in the place where I placed the Page Properties macro in my template. Any idea why this is happening and how to solve it?

Hi,

This typically happens because of a coding error in the macro. If the developer writes code that specifically checks for the presence of the parent page or blog post, the macro may then no longer work on a page template (since this is technically a different entity).

What version of Confluence are you using? This probably needs to be reported as a bug.

i got the same issue! anyone can tell me how to fix this? if it's a bug, when it can be solved?
