Re-ordering pages

The following instructions will show you how to view the hierarchy of pages within a space, and move pages to different positions within the hierarchy.

(tick) It is suggested that you use the new space that you created during the Take Tutorial (see 'Creating a space').

PART A: First, you will create some new pages :

  1. Go to the home page of your new space.
  2. Under the 'Add' menu, select 'Page'.
  3. A new, blank page appears.
  4. Click in the box near the top of the screen, where the words 'New Page' appear. The words 'New Page' will disappear. Type the following title: 'Book One'.
  5. Save your new page and go back to the space's home page.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5, but give your new page the title 'Chapter One'.
  7. Repeat steps 2-5, but give your new page the title 'Chapter Two'.

You have now created three new pages. All three pages are children of the space's home page.

PART B: Now you will view the pages within your space, and move some of your new pages into more logical positions:

  1. From the 'Browse' menu, select 'Pages'.
  2. A list of pages appears.
  3. Click the plus-sign next to the word 'Home'.
  4. A list of pages (i.e. children of the space's home page) is displayed. Your three new pages are included in the list, i.e.
    • 'Book One'
    • 'Chapter One'
    • 'Chapter Two'
  5. With your mouse, drag 'Chapter One' onto 'Book One'.
  6. Click the plus-sign next to the word 'Home'.
  7. A plus-sign now appears next to the words 'Book One'. Click this plus-sign.
  8. 'Chapter One' now appears indented below 'Book One'. Your tree should now look like this:
    • 'Book One'
      • 'Chapter One'
    • 'Chapter Two'
  9. With your mouse, drag 'Chapter Two' onto 'Book One'.
  10. Click the plus-sign next to the word 'Home'.
  11. Click the plus-sign next to the words 'Chapter One'. 'Your tree should now look like this:
    • 'Book One'
      • 'Chapter One'
      • 'Chapter Two'

In Confluence, you can organise pages into a hierarchy of parent and child pages. Pages in such a hierarchy are called a 'page family' (or 'page tree'). For more information about working with page families, please see the documentation. By default, a new page is the child of the page you were viewing when you started creating the new page.
There are three ways to view the list of pages in a space. You can choose to view:

  • recently-added pages only
  • all pages, in alphabetic order
  • all pages, in hierarchical order (also known as a 'page tree')

If the list of pages contains just the word 'Home' with a plus-sign next to it, then you are looking at the hierarchical order. If not, click 'Tree' (next to the word 'View', above the list of pages).
