Create and Edit Pages
Create a page
You can create a page from anywhere in Confluence; just choose Create in the header and you're ready to go. Pages are the place to capture all your important (and unimportant) information; start with a blank page and use it like a word processor to add rich text, tasks, images, macros and links, or use one of the useful blueprints to capture meeting notes, decisions, and more.

Once you decide on a blank page or blueprint, you'll be taken straight into the Confluence editor. The editor is where you'll name or rename your page, add the content, and format it to look great. When you've added some content, choose Preview to take a peek at what your finished page will look like, and choose Save when you've finished your edits.
After you save you'll see the page in 'view' mode. You can re-enter the editor any time by choosing Edit or pressing E on your keyboard.

Organise and move
You can also organise pages in a hierarchy, with child and/or parent pages for closely related content. When you navigate to a Confluence page and choose the Create button in the header, the page you're creating will by default be a child of the page you're viewing. Have as many child pages and levels in the hierarchy as you need to, and move pages if you want to change their location.
If you want to view all pages in a Confluence space, choose Pages in the sidebar, or choose Browse > Pages at the top of the screen if you're using the Documentation theme. If the space is using the Default theme, you'll see recent updates to pages and a page tree displaying all pages in the space; if it's using the Documentation theme, you can choose either Recently Updated, Alphabetical, or Tree view of the pages in the space.
