Toolbar hidden beneath announcement banner

When having an announcement banner enabled and starting to edit a page longer than a screen when scrolled down the toolbar is hidden beneath the Announcement banner.

Steps to reproduce:

- enable a announcement banner

- create a long page

- scroll down

- scroll a bit up to trigger the edit button to appear

- click edit

Then the toolbar is on the page, but beneath the announcement banner and is thus not usable. When clicking the button while being at the top of the page, this works as expected.

I tried to report a bug, but that gave an error that I don't have the privilege to assign a ticket, but the form does not have an option not to assign, so that wasn't helping.

Hi Bart,

I'd like to test this on my 6.5.0 instance and report a bug if necessary.

Can you tell me which one of the banners you're using from this page, or if you're using a different one?

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Hi Shannon,

I believe the banner was placed similar to this Jira banner manual:

We might have installed a plugin:

If so, this might not be a general confluence bug

Don't have an admin login, so not complete certain.
btw browsers on which this happened where firefox and chrome on MacOS (not tested on other OS/browser)
If this option isn't available, I can check later when a colleague who has an admin account is present.


Thanks, Bart.

The Jira document you sent won't work the same in Confluence, as the only two built-in banners we have for it are the ones listed on the article I sent.

If you have a screenshot you can share of the current banner it might help us to help you narrow down the source of it.

Otherwise I can wait for you to speak to your colleague and we can go from there.

Kind Regards,

As we performed the maintenance that was announced, we removed the banner again. So unfortunately I can't make the screenshot at the moment.

Also, we didn't use any method from the link in your first post, so I expect that we use the plugin and you can thus see this question as answered as far as I'm concerned.

Sorry for the consternation.

Thanks for the update Bart.

If you have any other issues with the banner do let me know!

Kind Regards,


Hi @Bart Jol 
In favor of a better user experience, in Announcement Banner for Confluence v1.0.3-RELEASE the announcement doesn't bother you anymore while editing a page.
