Page Tree Macro Only Showing Space Name

We are using Cloud Confluence.  Our wiki is of considerable size, so we created a space with a single 'Site Map' page.  In that page, we placed a Page Tree macro for each space, configured as follows:

Root Page - @none

Restrict to this Space Key - Key for the target space (usually 2 letters)

Start Depth - 3

...all other settings were left as defaults.

This gave us expandable trees for all spaces in one page, initially opened 3 levels deep.  All the spaces were listed together - all we had to do was add a new macro to this page when a new space was added.

Recently, the Confluence look and feel changed.  Our Site Map page is now completely broken - all the trees show is the name of the space.  When we try to expand the tree, nothing appears underneath.

We've tried removing and recreating one of the macros, but we still only see the space name in the tree.  Blanking out the root page makes the tree visible, but does not print the space name.  How do we fix this?

On my Confluence Cloud test instance, I experimented with the page tree macro using the settings you describe and got the same behavior. I could get the space name to display, without the child pages, or else I could get the page tree but without the space name at the top.

A workaround would be to add the space name to the page above the page tree macro.

Because this does not seem to be intended behavior, I opened a bug report: Page tree macro does not display the name of the space

I took the liberty of citing your use case. Please vote and/or comment to help get the attention of the development team.

Thanks Ann.  I did consider typing the space name ahead of each macro, but sometimes team members change the names without telling anyone and over time, the map could get quite out of sync with the content.  I suppose another workaround would be to double the page tree macros - use the first to print the space name and the second, the tree contents.  It's messy though.

Thank you for opening the bug.  I've added my vote.
