Default parent for SubSpaces


I would like to check if there is a possibility to set up a Default Parent SubSpace so if someone is creating new space it will not end up in SubSpace top menu list.

If no will it be possible to raise new enhancement? Looks like I can't raise one here -

Hello Areg,

The "createspace-start.action" Method is Confluence standard and that's why it is not in the scope of the Subspace plugin. The only way to avoid the creation of spaces from the Dashboard is to hide the creation link with the follwing CSS definition via: "Administration" -> "Look and Feel" -> "Stylesheet":

#dashboard-get-started .create-space {

display: none;


Hint: The "createspace-start.action" Method is still available via URL and this CSS will probably only work in Confluence 5.5, thus it may have to be adapted to your Confluence version.

Please talk to your users and advice them to create the spaces only in the corresponding parent spaces. Unfortunately, that is the only possibility that we have.


I have also raised an improvement request on your behalf. You can find it here:
