My company is using Confluence, but i have some doubt about Confluence.

May I know why my two different space have different layout


This Space is allow to edit


But this Space is not allow, but both of them are team space

May I know how to set my layout of QA space same Admin space (able to edit layout)

Even admin give all permission for user but still cannot see any edit button.Confluence.JPG

Based on what I see the main issue is that the QA space has no home page set.

In these cases what appears is only the Child page lists and activities.

To solve it you will need to go and set a homepage. In your QA space go to:

Space Tools (bottom left) -> Overview -> (In the admin page) Space Details / Edit space details -> Home Page.

Start typing the name of the page you wish to have as a homepage, and save.

Afterwards it should look the same.


As you mentioned these are both the same type of spaces, so I am unsure why the homepage has been deleted/moved, but it may just have been an accident.

Those are both pages within spaces.  To change one of them, click "edit".  Note that you do not have edit rights on the second space, you'll need to talk to the admins to get that added.

That mean only admins can edit second space?

No. Only people who have been granted permission to edit the space can edit it. Check the permissions on the space and amend them if necessary Note that "I am an admin" does not mean "I can do everything", it means "I can amend admin stuff (including permissions)". So you can have admins who can't edit pages (unless they change the permissions)

But even admin give all permission to user, but I still cannot see any Edit button. You can see the sample at the question. Thank you

Ugh, sorry, I thought you were looking at two pages. But I'm not sure that you are - it looks like one is a page and the other part of the space admin. Could you give us the URLs of those two screenshots? Without the base url if you're worried about it - if I were running confluence on https://nicstuff/ and looking at a page, it would have a url of https://nicstuff/display/my+page - weonly need to see the /display/my+page part of the urls
