How do I access/view the source code of a page?

How do I access/view the source code of a page?

Hi Angie - There's a menu option named "View Storage Format".  That will show you the XHTML source.

Thank you!

Next question please: While I can view the source code now, I can't edit it. Is that a permissions thing or does Confluence no longer allow you to edit at the source code level. I have been away from Confluence for only a year but it seems a lot of things have changed.

Thanks for your help!

You can not change the storage format. 

There are a few plugins for that: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/search?product=confluence&query=html%20editor

Another option is to use the Confluence CLI to download and upload the source using the getPageSource and storePage actions.

FYI: I'm the product manager for the Bob Swift Confluence CLI.
