Hello all,

I'm providing an official update on this question to clarify our current process.

It's not always possible to add the Legacy editor to your Cloud site, so the support team will need to confirm this on a site-by-site basis.

If you require the Legacy template, paid admins can raise a ticket via If you are a Cloud Free admin, you can accomplish this by creating a new question on Community with your admin account requesting the same. The Community Support team will be alerted, and then we can assist you with that process.

Thanks again, and take care!

Hello @Ana_Espinoza ,

The legacy editor template can be enabled for your site at any time.Most sites currently have the legacy editor template enabled. If your site falls within the small percentage of sites that do not, please reach out to Support for more information about enabling the legacy template.

Hi Ollie, 

Thank you for your answer... 

How or where is the support button? or there is a support email to write them?

or should I open an issue in this platform?


Thank you again for your quick answer :)

is not allowing me to write or to submit  a ticket... so complicated

I just signed up for a new Cloud dev instance, it's an emergency because a Confluence bug trashed my last instance.  That's a long story and a different topic.  Let's just say that I need a new dev instance and I need it right now.

So I signed up for a new one and it defaults to not letting me create legacy pages. 

This was an emergency.  It's too late now, the damage is done.  I don't have time to get support to fix my instance.

Please stop making it so hard to create legacy pages.

Please don't default to not having legacy page creation available on new dev instances.
