Create and Edit Pages
If you want to quickly create a blank page, hit the Create button in the header; if you want to create a page from a template, hit the Create from template button.
- Create blank page
- Create from template

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 Publish when you're ready to make it appear in the space.
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.
Another useful way to create a page is to use the Create from Template Macro. This macro allows you to choose a page template, and adds a button to the page allowing one-click page creation. If you want others to create pages using this template, this is a great option.
Need input from your team members? Multiple people can edit your page at the same time.
If you've not yet published the page, all you need to do is share the URL to invite others to edit with you (they need the appropriate Confluence and space permissions of course).
See Collaborative editing for all the ins and outs.

Organize and move
You can also organize 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.
Each time you create a page, you're creating it in a space. Spaces are containers used to contain pages with related content, so you can set them up for each team in your organization, for projects, a combination of both, or for any reason you want to group pages together. See Spaces for more information.
Other page actions
- Copy a page and its child pages
- Delete a page or remove a specific version of a page
- Monitor page updates and other activity through page notifications
- View page history, and manage and compare versions of a page
- Search page content, including attachments
- Export pages to Word, PDF, HTML or XML
- Like a page
If you rename a page, Confluence will automatically update all relative links to the page, except in some macros. Links from external sites will be broken, unless they use the permanent URL. See Working with Links for more information.
You may experience problems saving extremely large pages. Confluence can accept approximately 5mb of content (not including attached files) which is roughly equivalent to 800,000 words. If you do experience errors that indicate the page is too large to save, you should break up the page into several smaller pages.
