On pages with changed Content Layout > Page Layout, after upgrade to Confluence 7, trackbackRdf text is visible.

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


Confluence 7


In the Page Layout we can see the line:

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

The same text is also visible in the View of any page from this Space.


Starting from version 7 on Confluence trackback function is deprecated and removed -  CONFSERVER-57611 - Getting issue details... STATUS
Pages that use default Page Layout will not be affected as the upgrade process will remove the line, but custom Page Layout pages are affected as the upgrade process can not remove it from the template.


Remove the line from Content Layout > Page Layout.

The list of all affected spaces can be found by using this query:

select spacekey from decorator where decoratorname='decorators/page.vmd';
