I was in the middle of a new page being created and either I accidentally closed out of the browser or something else happened to stop me from hitting publish at the end of it. I have looked in the trash bin of the space and can't seem to find trace of it. Any ideas? I know that Confluence starts saving drafts of previously created pages as you edit them, but I can't seem to find anything for a page that was never "saved" from the start.


Any help is greatly appreciated!

if you once again create a new page in the same space, Confluence should ask you, if you want to open the draft.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the quick reply, but for some reason it didn't ask me when i tried your suggestion.

but have a look here:


I've just tested in my environment, created a page and did not save it. Did you add a page title to your page already?

I found my page in the drafts section of my profile.

I've also tried another page without a page title. This is also there as "page without name".

Hi Thomas,

Yes! I found it using that URL. Awesome trick!!!
