How do I create a parent page? (I don't want a child page)


Every single page I've created is a child page, how do I create a parent page?
Right now, my pages are in a wrong parent, and the parent page that I need is not there yet and I'd like to create a parent page.

And this article couldn't resolve my issue:

Hi @Kingsley Suen 

Thanks for reaching out to the community. I would like to know your hosting type. Are you on server or on cloud? I think, my answer will cover both. 

When you create a page, the page is always a child. If it's the first page from a space, then it's the child page of the homepage. 

You described, that you have a wrong page tree now, because all pages are in the wrong spot. So you can easily change the order of your pages.

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Reorder pages from the bottom of the sidebar
  2. Expand the branches to locate the page you want to move
  3. Drag the page to a new position in the tree

Or you could move your pages. Here is a documentation for moving pages.

You want to create a parent page. So you have to create a child page and reorder your pages.

Let's say your tree looks like: 

  • Homepage
    • Page A
      • Page C
        • Page D
          • Page E

Now you want to create a parent page for Page C. Go to Page A and create a Child Page:

  • Homepage
    • Page A
      • Page C
        • Page D
          • Page E
    • Page B

Now follow the instructions above and reorder the pages. Drag Page C into Page B

I hope I could helped you. Please let me know if it worked.

Regards, Dominic
