Confluence header bar no visible

I can't see new confluence header bar, so I can't create new pages (only with shortcut "c" key).

Hi Felix,

Please check in UPM that the "Create" plugin is enabled. Here's how to do:

  • Go to Confluence Administration,
  • Click "Manage Add-ons"
  • In the "User Installed" drop-down, select "All add-ons"
  • Find the "Confluence Create Content Plugin"
  • If it is disabled, enable it.

If Confluence refuses to enable it, go to the logs and find the last exceptions.

Cheers,

Adrien

Great, it was that. Now I must learn how to Enable plugins.

Thank you so much.

Alright, it happened because you might have had one bad restart (maybe the machine was especially slow that day, causing plugins to timeout at start-up), Confluence deactivated some plugins and didn't reactivate them afterwards. The Create plugin is especially fanciful about this behaviour.

I think this begs the question "why can't you see it"?

What are you getting on-screen? Can you try "view source" of the page to see if the bar is in the html or not? And most importantly, what did you change that killed the bar off?

Here is part of html code.

What is in bold is what I can't not see.

Ok, that looks like it's removed the create completely, which implies you've removed your own "create page" permission.

Is the rest of the bar there? You are just missing "create"?

This is what I see.

Looks like you aren't logged in, or if you are, you don't have any permissions.

I'm logged and I have permissions because I have created pages using shotcut key "c".

Hello Felix,

please could you perform the following checks ?

- Confluence Administrator -> Global Permission : Verify your user or the related group permission

- Verify that you have no customization applied that could impact your create button (custom html or javascripts)

- If you are using Confluence 5.0.X/5.1.X, please take a look here https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONFKB/'Create'+button+is+missing+in+Confluence+5.0.x+or+5.1.x

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Fabio
