Zen Full width macro only works for admin users

We need to use the full page width for content, so are using the full-width macro in the header to get rid of the left and right columns, as suggested in https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/271558/using-full-width-macro-in-master-page-layout.

To my dismay, I just discovered that though the effect works well for me, for users who are not admins or are not logged in, it doesn't work at all -- the page renders with the left column.

Help! If this can't be fixed we will have to give up on Zen. (We do want to move to your newer plugin, but we need to upgrade Confluence first, and I'm not sure that will happen soon enough.)

Hi Jonathan,

Jumping in here - have you checked your user permissions on the space that houses that header? Look in your Zen Space Settings ... perhaps a utility space?

Suspecting that your users may not have permissions to view that space, which would mean the macro would not render.

We'll start there!
Let us know...


The header is in the same space as the content, so I think it can't be that. Also, there are no restrictions on .zen.header, either. FWIW, I tried going to .zen.header as a non-admin user, and I can view it, too.

OK, thanks, Jonathan. We'll continue the discussion on your support ticket, and will post final solution here.
