How to move page tree with attachments from a space to another?

Edit the page, click "location" and change it to the new space.  You can move all the child pages with it.  (Attachments are irrelevant, they stay with the page they're attached to no matter what)


Hi Nic, page can be moved over, however attachments cannot be moved over properly. All attachments links are broken. Cannot open it at all. Thanks,

Ok, that sounds a bit broken. What does the log file say when you try to do a page move?

We actually host in cloud. I cannot check any logs at all. Thanks,

I'm sorry, I missed that label. This still sounds like there is an issue, I'd contact Cloud Support on to see what they say (because the server I've just checked moves attachments with the pages)

Although that might run into the same problem the standard move is having

That only works if one buys an expensive plugin, right`?

Copy page tree is an add-on.  Standard drag and drop is built in.

Is there a public facing issue for this logged? We have some users with the same issue we'd like to point them to. Thanks! smile


... but they seem to prefer to sell addons to fixing #1 on that list.

Well, the add-ons that help with most of those aren't Atlassian add-ons.

The existence of a 3rd party add-on that implements features that have been requested is actually something that pushes the feature down the list for Atlassian to implement in the core product.

Id like to know how "copying content" around a "content management system" is not a default feature?

Has this been resolved? Or are there still a reliance on external plugins for what should be a standard part of the system?

Because copying things is needless duplication, and generally a bad thing to do.  Update the original, you've got a history if you get it wrong.  Or include pages from the original if there's a genuine need for a copy.

So, to answer the question, no, there's still a reliance on add-ons for a function that you should not really need often enough to include it in the core.
