Pages are displaying ? Unknown Attachment.

Some of my help pages are not displaying attachments. Not sure when this started happening, but some of my pages are displaying ? Unknown Attachment rather than my attachments.

  • Confluence 4.3
  • File System based attachments
  • Happens for both logged in and anonymous users
  • If you 'View Attachments' on the page they are all there. If I re-add the images they display fine.
  • Does not occur for all pages. I looked at some very new pages and some very old pages. Both display fine. Not sure what differentiates affected pages.

Any ideas?

I've also had this problem on a random basis, but have no idea why it happens. I've cured it by doing what you did, by re-adding them to the page.


Do you think it has anything to do with copying spaces? I was using the copy space plugin yesterday and someone reported the problem today.

Not in my experience. The pages it's happened on are not part of a space that's been copied, unless it was over a year ago. In which case, I wasn't here. :)
