Where is the attachment paperclip?

Hello there,

is it possible that the paperclip icon for attachments in the metadata-area isn't availible anymore? We have a Confluence installation with 5.4.2 where it is not visible. A 5.2.5 is still showing the icon as I'm used to.

Can somebody please help me here?

Thanks in advance!

There's a known issue if you access your wiki from URLs other than the configured base URL:


Could that be it? If you go to Tools -> Attachments are the attachments still there?

Thanks for your answer, John. Unfortunately this isn't the problem I ran into.

If I take a look at the HTML-Output there is absolutely no sign where the paperclip could be. (I compared it to a installation where it works.)
