Navigation/Page tree disappears when space home page is changed

I'm using Confluence 4.2.8 on Server 2008. I'm using the Documentation theme for a space. I've disabled the Page Tree, but re-enabled it in the Navigation configuration using the pagetree macro ({pagetree:startDepth=2|searchBox=true}).

When I change the home page of the space to point to a specific page, the navigation tree is no longer displayed. When I change the home page back to the original home page, the navigation tree reappears. Is this a bug?

Hallo jprateragg

To fix the problem, add the "Root Page" parameter to your Page Tree macro. In wiki markup, it's:

{pagetree:root=My page name|startDepth=2|searchBox=true}

Instead of "My page name", use the name of the page that was originally your space home page.

By default, the Page Tree macro uses the home page of the space as its starting point. If you change the home page, and that new home page has no children, then the navigation panel will be empty.

I hope this works for you. :)



That fixed it. Thanks so much!

I can't reproduce it on Confluence 4.2.8. Try to enable the safe mode and see if this issue persists.

Just enabled safe mode and the issue persists.

EDIT: the search box is there--the navigation tree is missing.
