Create button being shown everywhere


We've upgraded Confluence from version 4.3.7 to 5.5.2 and for the moment regular users only have the permissions to view content across spaces (they can add pages to their own personal space).

Despite the permissions, the Create button is shown in every space. When clicked, only the personal space is available to the user though. Is this the default behaviour in Confluence 5?

We would like to understand if this is something that comes by default with C5 or if it might be due to some user-installed plug-ins (namely the RefinedWiki Original Theme)...

Thank you.

It is the default behavior. If you have create permissions for a space you will see the create button.
