Admin can not edit confluence page

I can not edit confluence pages as an Admin in Confluence. I have cleared my cache. The only solution that works about 1/5 times and only for a single view and edit, is to log out and back in.

being an admin doesn't mean you're allowed to do everything with a page.

What you can do, is giving you access & all permissions to pages.

Anyway, are we talking about Confluence Cloud or Server?

Did you check the space permissions? Did you try different browsers?
