How do I show the tree on the left Sidebar?

Hi everyone,

Up until last week, everything looked fine on my Spaces. Somehow for the last couple of days, the tree in the sidebar just disappeared in 2 of my spaces.

I don't recall changing anything. I now see that those pages are all Hidden, b/c they are orphan pages. How can I make the top pages of that tree structure parent pages so they are not orphan anymore? Or what is the solution to this? I am helpless at this point.

Confluence can be awesome but sometimes so silly.

Hi @Othmane Zoheir  ,

Welcome to Atlassian community. 

Yes, I have seen such issue's and looks like some plugin is causing such issue. You will have to enter safe mode and check once to confirm. Follow the steps from the below article.

Hope the above info helps. Have a good day!

Hello Srinath,

This is not the problem I have. I do see things on the sidebar (Space Settings etc...), I am just missing the Tree itself.

I think Confluence is buggy. Today, the tree shows up on the sidebar...I haven't visited Confluence since posting this issue - and now the problem seems to have gone away by magic.

This is not good behaviour for any type of software. Do you have any insight on what could have happened? How can I commit to a tool that is buggy without any explanation?


Thank you

I haven't touch anything still. Now the issue is present on my General space, but not in other spaces.


Am I doing something wrong or is this software just super buggy?
