#trackback on every page after upgrade from 6.15 to 7.2

Hi all,


we upgraded our Confluence Server recently to 7.2. Since this upgrade every page is showing at the end in plain text:

#trackbackRdf ($trackbackUtils.getContentIdentifier($page) $page.title $trackbackUtils.getPingUrl($page))


Does anyone have an idea where this comes from?


Thanks in advance

In my case it appeared above the collaborative editor and was due to a custom Page Layout applied to the space. You can find this by going to Space Tools -> Look and Feel -> Layout, and then check if any layouts don't say "< default >".

If it's at the bottom of the page in every space, maybe check if you've got some custom layout defined in the Layouts section of the admin settings.

I haven't found what trackbackRdf is yet, but maybe it's an outdated way of finding the referrer page? You can CTRL+F for that line in this page and you'll see it's included in the example layout:

Resetting the page layout to default helped. Thanks a lot.

We added a configuration to the page layout for a plugin. It looks like Atlassian changed the default layout in the new version. 


Thanks again for this hint.
