Confluence 4.0 dashboard global space list

I understand that the global space list on Confluence 4.0 dashboard is not a fixed size - that in itselft is a major bummer - but I can deal with it I guess, What is really bothersome is the fact when you click on the view all link, it takes you to the Space Directory, displaying the same spaces you just saw and you still have to click again to get to the next page. Is there a way to modify that space directory to show all spaces? We have been use to seeing all spaces when looking for information and it will be difficult to train the employees otherwise, and the 2 extra clicks are annoying. Yes I know you can create your own custom lists, your own favorites and categories. I just want to find a way to easily view all the spaces at once and that seems to be blocked at the moment - but I easily could be missing something - been trying to work with the .vm files to see if there is something in there I can change but haven't found it.

I appreaciate any suggestions.

Thank you

Hi Lirria,

One option may be to use a space home page as the default landing page instead of the dashboard and as one of the items on it make use of the space list macro to display all spaces.


Thank you - that is an interesting thought - now to just get all the information in there - I think it's spaces-list for the whole list - I'll dink around with it thanks!

I have added on the dashboard.vm and it's work ( body section for example)

<script type="text/javascript">
window.location = "/spacedirectory/view.action"

Super - I'll have to 4 installed again and test it out - Just haven't had the time to try it.

Thank you!
