Page reordering does not persist

I've tried several times to reorder pages in a space for which I have Admin permissions, and the reordering doesn't persist, or "stick." I've tried reordering using Edge and Chrome browsers and have asked for help from a local Confluence admin, but nothing works.

Hi @Julie Boothman 

What do you mean by "doesn't persist or stick"?

When you drag'n'drop the pages, does it look correct and after a reload it's back again, or is it after the drag'n'drop directly back again? 

Regards, Dominic

So then something with the permissions could be wrong. Please check following page:

To move a page, you need the following permissions:

  • 'Add' permission on the page you're moving, and
  • 'View' permission on the page's parent page. If you're moving the page to a different parent, you need 'View' permission on the new parent.

To move a page into a different space, you also need:

  • 'Delete' permission on the space you're moving from, and
  • 'Add' permission on the space you're moving to.

If the page has restrictions, and you want to keep the page restrictions in the new location, you'll also need 'Restrict' permission on the space you're moving to. Alternatively, remove the page restrictions before performing the move.

Let me know if this helped
