Problems with contributors-summary macro


we have a strange problem with the contributors-summary macro. After adding the parameter 'scope=children' see the example below, we got the following error message: 'Error formatting macro: contributors-summary: java.lang.NullPointerException'.


It only happens for one page!! In all other pages the macro works correctly. The log files doesn't help. Do you have an idea?

Thanks in advance,

Hi Thomas,

There should be an exception message logged in your atlassian-confluence.log file. Could you please see if you can post the corresponding exception message here?
