Spam message on PDF export

Hi there,

I've just noticed a spam link with a youtube message is placed above each pdf export file. The link text is music download and it leads to a YouTube video which is already removed

Just to be sure I've cleared my custom pdf settings and stylesheet, that didn't help.

Also I've googled and searched the Answers pages but couldn't find any reference to my problem. Could you guys help me out?

Thanks so much in advance.

Hello Jae,

In a first approach I would suggest you to download the default confluencedefaultpdf.css and then try to set again from this scratch your global pdf stylesheet by this procedure and using this default model:

With this approach you'll be configuring a new global pdf stylesheet using a default model (confluencedefaultpdf.css) and if the url to this video is located here, so we will solve the problem with this kind of 'reset' to the default. Another suggestion would be also to review and double-check all the configuration applied in the customization applied in the export to pdf, you can follow these points to check:

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
