How to use the "old editor"

Atlassian has recently made an announcement -- through a blog post -- that the old editor is not going anywhere for the foreseeable future .

Much rejoicing all around the world. However, some users are still in doubt as to how to use the old editor. Here is how, in the Cloud version of Confluence:

When you create a new page, click the entry called "Blank page (old) (going away soon)" -- located at the top right in the "Create" dialog.


Don't worry about the "going away soon" part -- it has been like this for months, if not a year. And, the blog post tell us not to worry about it actually happening.

If this option should not show, try scrolling to the bottom of the list, and look for a link to "Show more templates" or similar. If you click this, then it should show up.

Another option for using the old editor is to simply copy a page created with the old editor, then deleting all content, and starting over.


I don't see blank page (old) nor do I see "show more templates". Do I need to contact Atlassian?

I am sorry - apparently different sites have different access. I would contact Atlassian.

Would be great if you could add some more information here, if you figure something out.

I have a page I created prior to the new editor. I am trying to edit this page and it seems that it's the new editor features that are at play. Is there anyway to change this? I don't want to have to completely re-create this page.
