How is content arranged in spaces?
Each space you create, including your personal space, is automatically created with a home page – the first page you'll see when you navigate to the space – which you can edit to suit your needs, and you can create any number of child pages to store the content and information you need. Spaces don't nest – you can't have a space within a space – but pages do, so you can create as many levels of hierarchy as you need using pages.
Each space also has its own blog, allowing you to share news and make announcements. Blog posts are a great way to keep people involved in what's going on in your team or project.
You can set different levels of access for each space using its permissions.

View all spaces in Confluence
There are two main ways to view spaces in Confluence:
- The dashboard – The bottom left of the dashboard displays the first few spaces, and a list of your favourite spaces if you have any, with a link to view all spaces in the space directory.
- The space directory – Choose Spaces > Space directory in the Confluence header. The space directory displays a list of all the site and personal spaces you have permission to see. Filter the list of spaces by selecting from the categories on the left of the space directory.
You can mark a space as a favourite by choosing the star icon to the right of it, or categorise the space to get easy access to the content that's most relevant to you.
The Spaces menu in the header also displays a list of your recently viewed spaces, allowing you to quickly navigate to the things you view most often.
