Configure the default Action for "Create" Button



Can I configure the default action for the "Create" Button in the top menu bar, to always trigger the "Create Blank page" action.


I'm accessing a Confluence and try to create a new (sub-) page in any space.
I'm doing this by clicking directly on the "Create" Button in the top menu bar.
Doing so I get forwarded to the "Not found" Page.

I realized that the reason is because on clicking the "Create" Button, the action of creating a Blog Post is triggered. I'm not allowed to create to create Blog Posts everywhere (but in my personal space).

So when I click on the dots (...) next to create and select "Blank Page" -> "create" it works perfectly fine.

Can I configure and change the default behavior of the button?

Hi @Paul Edison ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

At this moment , no you can not configure the behaviour of create button . There is a feature request for the same . You might want to vote for the same.

I hope above info helps. Have a good day.!
