How can I remove or delete a version of a page in confluence?

We are using confluence version 4.1. The documentation says that if I am a space administrator I should be able to remove a specific version of a page. When I go to the page history, I see no option for removing a version, only restoring a version. I have space admin rights.

Am I missing something?

Hi there,

I'm sorry to say that you can only delete versions of pages from Confluence 5.0 onwards, before then the fucntionality isn't available so it is expected that you wouldn't see the option to delete the versions. However, you can check out the improvement request that this issue was being tracked in here: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-996

All the best

Hi,

I think, deleting a version of a page is a new feature of Confluence 5.

Cheers

Hi, as I see what you have to do it's to check the version you want to delete and then press on Tools and then Erase, that way you can erase more than one in one click, the restoring version you only can do to one version, that's why the option it's in the line.

Hope this helps.

Wrong answer. Deleting.

Hi Jnet,

The feature to remove one version of a page was not implemented on Confluence 4.1

You are able to do it only with Confluence 5.x

Regards.
