Working with Confluence Pages

The pages within a space are organized in a tree structure, where each page may have one or many child pages. You can see the current organization for your space by selecting Pages from the menu on the left side of the window. Clicking on the arrow next to a page name will display the child pages for that page.

Common Page Functions

Add a Page

People with the appropriate permissions can add a page by clicking the Create button. By default, a new page will be added as a child of the current page, and the permissions for the new page will be the same as the current page.

When adding a page, you should provide a page title in the empty box at the top. You may then enter content into the body of the page. The only difference between editing a newly created page and editing an existing page is that you will not be able to add images on a new page.
