Page restriction does not work in some spaces


I am Confluence Administrator, and I have noticed a extrange behabiour.

In some spaces, when clicking on tools -> restrictions, it does not show the pop-up of restrictions.

Then, when editing a page, if I click on edit restrictions it shows the pop-up, but it does not add the group or user that I choose. I have tried in other spaces and restrictions are added without any problem.

Is there anything configured in the space that makes this happen? What am I missing?

Thanks for your help,

In the spaces that are not behaving properly is it possible that someone else has set a restriction that you exclude you. If they have you wouldn't be able to see it (even as a confluence admin). You can however see if this is the case, but going into space admin, and then looking at the restricted pages.

Thank you.

We realized that it was due to the personalized theme we chose. It mas have an error, so the restrictions does not work in spaces with that theme.
