Remove images from attachments list


Trialling Confluence for the business currently, which would be used for technical documentation. Some pages will have attachments e.g. scripts, that I would like to view using the attachments macro. However, the macro also shows all of the pictures embedded in the page too.

Is there a way to exclude pictures from the attachments macro? I have tried to use the regex filter ^.*png, but this still displays PNG images. Is there a regex expression that will achieve what I want?

Thank you for your help

try adding labels to the attachments via the Ellipsis (three dot icons)>Attachments

then set the type of labels in the Attachments macro


Thank you for your reply.

A number of people will be updating the Wiki with information and potentially uploading files, so this solution isn't really suitable for our situation.

Thanks again

Hi, sorry for necroing this thread, but you may try


as seen at

If you want to hide all files that end with png (say maybe someone accidentally removes the dot before the file extension when renaming), then


would be the expression.

Also the file extension might be in caps (PNG) but regex is usually case sensitive (on Confluence it is) so the final solution is


where (?i) in front of expressions will make sure it searches for upper and lowercase variants too.
