menuMacros_renderGlobalBrowseMenu with corrupted header showing up on personal space after upgrade

After upgrading from Confluence 3.5 to 5.6 I'm getting a badly rendered header in my personal space with "#menuMacros_renderGlobalBrowseMenu()" being displayed and, not surprisingly given the message, no menu.  This is not browser specific.  Have not investigated plugins yet.

Other users are not seeing this with their personal spaces so this may be because I had changed my theme a looong time ago.  Since I can't get to the menu I can't try playing around with themes to investigate this theory.  Unfortunately the folks that currently admin Confluence and performed the upgrade are new to Confluence (long story) so I'm currently on my own on this one.

Any insight someone could provide on this would be appreciated.

Found the issue.  I had a custom site layout decorator defined that broke with the upgrade.

I reset it to the default by navigating directly to the URL via https://my_wiki_url/spaces/listdecorators.action?key=~mlange and then resetting to the default decorator that was customized.


Brilliant - this fixed it for me as well. Thanks.

Might want to expand this into a proper question?

Accidentally submitted before adding any content.  It's updated with an actual question now.


I have same problem on Dashboard

I fix it on page http://localhost/confluence/admin/dochoosetheme.action

For this you need reset "Site Theme" to "Default Theme"
