Table of Contents macro, issue with additional characters

Reinhard Eggert Sep 04, 2013

Hi there,

we are using the TOC macro in most of our confluence pages. We have dicovered it dont works if we use additional characters, such as + - : ? or the german letters ä ö ü.
If used in the name of the site no link works, if used in an headline this one link dont works. This happens using Confluence 5.1.5 on Windows 7 PCs if using IE9 or Firefox 23.

Is there any setting that changes this?

Best regards

Hi Thomas,

thank you.

But as 5.3 is an beta version, and some of our plugins still not reached compatibility to 5.2.x this issue seems to stay with us for some additional time.

You could try to upgrade to version 5.2.5, I tested the TOC macro and it worked fine on FireFox with Confluence 5.2.5.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Joachim,

I think your problem is described here: and is fixed in Version 5.3.
