How do you change position of labels?

I would like to display the labels-section on one of my pages inside a panel macro. I tried to do a .clone().appendTo() to display the labels in another div and that did not work. I have also tried changing it's position using CSS but that also does not work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Ben,

what CSS did you use to change the position of the labels section? I tried it in Confluence 5.5.7 and it worked.

div#labels-section   { position: absolute; left: 200px; top: 100px; }


Hello Kristin,

The CSS  I used was about the same as yours - I just used bottom instead of top. I ended up getting a display page information macro so it would work, but when I use that it does not leave the bottom of the page no matter what I type. I can have it like this and it ends up staying in the same Y position and moving along the X plane until about the mid-way point.

{ position: absolute; left: 100; bottom: 200 }


But as I said, I got it to at least display the tags with the macro, so it functions for now - we are updating to 5.7.x sometime soon so hopefully the CSS will work when we do that.


Thank you,





I ended up figuring it out. It was a brain fart on my part more than anything. If I use negative values I can move it past the boundaries.

So I made two separate ones a

div#likes-and-labels-container {} - with a relative position rather than absolute


div#labels-section{} with a left: -34%

and I was able to move the entire container up to the Y position I needed and then moved the labels a negative amount to the left after hiding the likes section to move it past the X boundary it had.

Thanks, I probably would have just kept it with the macro and had two labels if you didn't post this and motivate me to give it another college try.
