How to fix "Error rendering macro 'toc' : null" error

Newbie here and I am trying to create my first Confluence OnDemand Template.

I am attempting to use the Table of Contents macro but get "Error rendering macro 'toc' : null".

I have Headings defined in the Template.

What else am I supposed to do?

I've found a bug report that corresponds with the problem you're seeing:

Please do head over and vote for it to increase it's exposure.

It will work when someone creates a page from template. I went through this issue as well.

I actually recieved the error when I was attempting to create a templlate from scratch. You seem to be saying that you need to start with an existing template in order to create a template. Sort of a Chicken and Egg fix :-)

Thank you,

No, that's not what he is saying. He's saying that it will show an error when you preview while editing/creating a template, but that it will work fine when users create pages based on the template.

Atlassian should test this issue and either answer the question or open a defect. I keep getting emails that I should resolve the issue. I think these emails should be sent to Atlassian support.



I went to the defect report but do not understand the voting process
