Included pages do not display

Using the standard include page macro with scroll versions produces mixed results. Sometimes the included pages appear, regardless of version no.; other pages do not work; a message appears indicating the included page cannot be found. What am I doing wrong?

Hi Greg,

Scroll Versions bundles an extension to the standard include macro which is called include+ . Only the include+ macro is able to resolve the correct version of an included page. I think this explains the 1st of your described results.

The other issues might be related to standard include issues tracked by Atlassian such as CONF-24785. With the introduction of allowing special keys such as % / @ : in Confluence page titles the standard include macro was not adopted... As the include+ renders the resolved page version using the standard include macro internally, the macro is impacted by almost the same issues. However Scroll Versions already bundles a fix for ':'.

I am not sure if my answer point you to the right direction... so it might be a good idea to contact the support team (

Thank you Tobias, I think you are saying that I should use the include plus macro and not the standard page include, and that I should avoid any special keys in page titles except for ':'. Is that right? I have sent a request to support team regarding trouble with the include plus macro; it is not working at all; produces a 'error loading children' message.
