Confluence: Cannot drag and drop pages in a new Hierarchy


I have recently lost the ability to move of a page by drag/drop.

Can someone tell me what might be the issue?

To move a page, you need the following permissions:

  • 'Add' permission on the page you are moving, and
  • 'View' permission on the page's parent page. So if you are moving the page to a different parent, you need 'View' permission on the new parent.

Dragging and droping is the same like moving a page. Please check your permissions and try again.

I hope that will help.

Best Regards,
