Confluence pages disappeared after moving Edited


I tried to move a Parent page from one space to another without assigning a parent page (as I wanted it to be independent). The page was moved successfully but I'm unable to see it in the destination space. Unable to trace it through search options as well. But when I opened 'Reorder Pages' in Space tools, the pages, and their hierarchy are visible.

How do I access my pages? 

I checked with admin access by the way and no permissions/restrictions have been set for this particular Space and Page.

Hi Goutami,

The parent of the page will need to be the homepage of the space. Once you set that to be the parent then it will still be an independent page but viewable in the space.

Can you try that and let us know if you have any trouble?



Hi Shannon, 

I resolved it just now. Found it in orphaned pages and reordered all the pages within the space. 

Thanks a lot for replying! 


Super! Thank you for letting me know you were able to resolve it.

Take care and Kind regards,

Hi, Goutami,

maybe your page is not underneath the homepage anymore.

Pages that are not under the home page, are not visible in any page trees in the sidebar.   

Hi Thomas,

Yes, I think this was the issue. I reordered the pages and resolved the issue just now. 

Thanks a lot for the help!
