How do I replace default confluence 5 dashboard with subspaces plugin?

I am looking for a solution to replace the default list of spaces from confluence 5 with the one generated by the subscpaces plugin, so people will not see the subspaces as listed.

We find the Subspace plugin useful and use Subspaces Dashboard Panel (CF 4).

The only problem with deactivating the module "global-entities-panel" is that it also removes the Favourite section as well as the space list. User cannot view their list of favorite pages.

I'm thinking of leaving the "global-entities-panel' enabled and using custom HTML to hide the default space list.

For example, at the end of the HEAD:

<style type="text/css">
div#spaces-pane div.space-list-section.entity-list-section.global-spaces-section {
display:none;
}
</style>

If anyone can see an issue with doing this let me know.

Hello Madeline,

there's no reason for concern.

Kind regards,

Hi Sorin,

go to your Confluence Administration -> Manage Addons -> Subspace Plugin and activate the Module "Subspaces Dashboard Panel (CF 4)". Now you have the Subspace Panel on your Dashboard.


If you want to remove the Confluence original "dashboard space view" you have to deactivate the module "global-entities-panel" which is part of the "Dashboard Macros Plugin" (it is a system plugin).

I hope this helps to clarify your question.

Greetings, Stephanie
