what to do if you get "error rendering macro 'imagemap' : null

The imagemap plugin is giving us this error when we export to PDF. Is there a way to circumvent this?

We're using a central attachement page which has the images on it (at same level as Home in the space) and then linking to an image on that page from a page that is underneath Home somewhere.

This works fine in the browser, but has problems when exporting.

Anyone encountered this and found a workaround or do we need to submit an issue with the developer for review?

We (Orion Health, NZ) have the same problem. Did you find a solution yet?

Hi, can you confirm that the following is true for you too?

The imagemaps PDF when you export just a single page using Tools>Export to PDF, but not when you export the whole manual from Advanced>PDF Export.

The behavior is indeed as you describe it in your last post.


This is still an issue with current version of the plugin - 1.10.


The information bellow should be able to help the author fix this bug:


HTML and PDF exports do not work and throw NullPointerException.

The problem is in ImageMapPlugin.java file at line 88.

Here are some details from server log:


-- referer: | url: /spaces/doexportspace.action | userName: administrator | action: doexportspace
at de.woeschbach.confluence.imgmp.ImageMapPlugin.execute(ImageMapPlugin.java:88)
