How to add the + icon to the left hand navigation pane under Pages?

Adam Re I'm New Here Sep 22, 2022

Hello - I'm used to using Confluence with a client instance wherein there is a "+" icon on the lefthand navigation panel in order to easily add pages and subpages. 

I just started using Confluence for my own company and see a very different UI, wherein the only way I can add a page is to click Create at the top. Is there a different interface based on licensing, or is there something I'm doing wrong here? The current UI feels very clunky.

Hi @Adam Re , welcome to the Atlassian Community!

This means that your current company is using an on-premise self-hosted Server/Data Center version of Confluence. That UI is indeed less intuitive and has way less of the nice features - like adding pages from the + sign - that the Cloud version has. So you're not doing anything wrong. Suggest your company to move to Cloud unless they have a valid reason they're on Data Center.

That's unfortunate, though thank you for explaining this to me.
