page properties report macro doesn't see {details} macro


the 'page properties macro' is great and enables excellent reporting.

But I don't know how to report data from wiki markup 'details macro', which should work the same as the 'page properties macro'.

I've created a page with wiki markup :

Project Status



Green Parrots



but the 'page properties report macro' or wiki markup 'detailssummary macro' doesn't see that details.

I have tried to add a table:

||Project Status



Green Parrots



but it doesn't help, too.


But when I create a "graphic" 'page properties macro' with the same data as above, the 'page properties report macro' or wiki markup 'detailssummary' works right and sees the page properties.


Do You know what is wrong?

What version are you on right now? I ask because the meta data and details summary macros to my knowledge has been deprecated in current versions in favor of the page properties and page properties report macros.

My confluence version is 5.6.1. I will upgrade it.

Yeah, I'm pretty positive that those macros have been deprecated and are no longer in your version.

I've upgrated confluence to 5.6.4. Unfortunately the wiki markup macros still don't work. I have even created new pages with both macros and still, the graphic macros work and the wiki markup macros don't. Got any idea? I am quite new in confluence, so maybe there is something obvious, that I just don't see..

I've added print screen of the wiki markup details macro to the question, and print screen of page properties report. The page properties macro doesn't see the page: test11.
