Issue with Page Tree Formatting on Landing Space Home Page


I'm having an issue in Confluence where the page-tree expand arrows are not lining up with the page titles in the side-bar (see screenshot below).  There are also strange bullets appearing under the Pages link at the top of the page.  I've tried deleting the space and setting it up again from scratch but the same thing happened.

This is only occuring on the home page of the landing space. Page trees on the pages themselves are working fine.

I'm using IE9 and the Cloud version of Confluence. Worth noting that I'm very new to Confluence so I may be missing something obvious!

Any help much appreciated. : )

As this seems to be a problem related to a plugin on your Cloud instance and not something we can easily fix I would recommend you to contact Atlassian support: they might be able to help you out.

Best regards,



Thanks Peter. I've done just that..

Thanks for your response Peter but I don't think it's that.  I checked IE settings and all the options for Display in Compatibility view are un-checked:





Did you try it in other browsers? Do they display the same weird behavior?

I tried it with Safari on my phone and it renders perfectly. Looks like it's on IE only issue. Our machines in work default to IE so using other browsers isn't really an option for me.

I would recommend you to request the latest version of IE or permission to use a different browser if this is really bothersome. There is nothing we can do about the IE behavior. Maybe one last thing you could try is using a different theme for your space.

Is your zoom level set to 100%?

Hi David, yes it is. And I've tried zooming in and out but I get the same issue. Update: I've just realised that if I remove the team calendar widget from my page then the formatting is fixed. All pages that don't have the calendar on it are fine. However, I really need the calendar on my home page....any ideas?

Sorry, Davin. : )

Just to draw a line under this Atlassian Support have confirmed it as a bug: CONF-36674.

They're investigating.

Thanks for the replies guys. Appreciate it.
