Table of Contents does not appear on published page


Working on a basic page. When I add the ToC it finds the headings as expected. But when I publish the page the ToC blinks rapidly and disappears. Screenshots below. Am I missing a step? Im on Chrome on a mac, if that matters.

Hey hey - I'm glad I'm not the only one having this problem. 

I've tried copying the content to a new page (I'm having the same issue on 2 new pages anyway), and I've also tried in Chrome and Safari - but still no luck.

Any other tips? I sure would appreciate it!


Hi @Devin Vail 

It sounds like there's something specific on that page which is causing an issue. If the page isn't too big, then I'd suggest manually copying (i.e. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C) all the content to a new page and saving it and see if you are seeing the issue in other Confluence page or space.

Are there any headings on the current Confluence page where the macro was added?

Does this happen when you use a different browser?



Good call Manisha! Tried in Safari and it works perfectly - so its not the page or macro that are the problem.

The new issue is that it doesn't work in Chrome in a mac? Its my browser of choice, which Im sure is the case for many others. How could this be addressed in your opinion? Some kind of support ticket with Atlasssian?



Hi @Devin Vail 

Glad to know that it works for you in safari. But we are not seeing any issue with the Chrome browser on Mac as well. Can you please try it in other Confluence space in the Chrome browser and verify it.



Hi @Manisha Kharga - Appfire 

I have the exact same issue, same configuration, mac + chrome, does not show the TOC when I preview

I'm experiencing the same issue.

Two different pages, tested in both Chrome and Safari on Mac - no luck.

I'm having exactly the same issue as reported before. I'm also using a Mac+Chrome configuration. Please Atlassian Support, prioritise and check this issue. 

Same here.
In Confluence page looks good, but published page - is empty.
No errors appear in any step.

By the way, I use Mozilla and Windows.

Using windows / chrome and same happened. It is  a shame that is impossible to do such a simple thing on confluence.

In my case somehow it happened because of link.
Just ordinary link to other page was inserted on same page.

After removing link, content is displayed.
Can not imagine how it can be related, but it worked.
