      Workaround - for New Questions

      The following procedure is not a scalable workaround, but works.

      2. Browse to that question again and edit it.
      3. Upload the images required in the question and save it.

      The fixes for LTS versions have been released. Upgrading both Confluence and Confluence Question Plugin to the below versions to get attachments working properly.

      • Confluence 7.4.17 + CQ 3.0.5
      • Confluence 7.13.7 + CQ 3.0.5

      Due to Marketplace limitation, we cannot add LTS minor versions into compatibility range. Even though the Marketplace plugin page says CQ 3.0.5 only supports 7.16.3 above, please be aware that 3.0.5 has been fully tested with 7.4.17 and 7.13.7. The jar file could be downloaded and installed manually through Marketplace.
