Receive error screen when trying to go to Space Directory Admin

I'm getting the following error -

org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'getLogoDownloadPath' in class com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.spacedirectory.ViewSpaceDirectoryAction threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at /templates/spacedirectory.vm line 65, column 59

When trying to access the Space Directory as an admin. Can you help?

What version of Confluence are you running?

I'm getting exactly the same error running Confluence 4.1.2

Is there now a answer ? I have the same Problem !

Not having the issue any more. Not sure what I did back in Jan uary but we're now running 4.1.5.

Selecting Browse / Space Directory in Atlassian Confluence 4.2.3, produces the exact same error:

org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'getLogoDownloadPath' in  class com.atlassian.confluence.plugins.spacedirectory.ViewSpaceDirectoryAction threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at /templates/spacedirectory.vm[line 65, column 59]

I am running a fresh install of Atlassian Confluence 4.2.3 with only SubSpace Plugin v1.7.3 installed.

What can I do to solve this?

I just noticed that this error only occurs when logged in as Administrator.

Logged in as a regular user, this error does not occur and the Spaces Directory window appears as expected.

It seems I was wrong.

In my particular setup, this error also occurs for regular users that have access to 4 spaces.

Users having only access to 1 or 2 spaces do not get this error.

Perhaps this helps.
