Page tree is not visible

I created a new space in Confluence, created a new page, and moved some pages from another space to a new space, however, I can't see "Page Tree" from the left sidebar. The only way it'll display the "Page Tree" if I click one of the "Recently Update" page, then I can see the Page tree and pages under it.

When I go to space directory and find the newly created space and click on it, I can't see Page Tree, but I can see "Pages", "Blog" and "Calendar". I was digging in the space setting and found out all pages are in the "Orphaned' pages" section. I'm thinking because of that I can't see "Page Tree/Child Pages".

How I can make "Page Tree" visible when users click on the space and how I can take out the pages from the orphaned pages?

Thank you

Hi @Shah Baloch ,

It looks as if you gave moved the home page of the space.

Can you please check, if there is the correct home page set in the space detail settings? This should be a tab next to the orphaned pages.

Try to set a new home page to fix the problem. 

Hi @Bastian Stehmann  I set up a home page, and now I can see "Page Tree", however, I still can't see those existing pages. How I can move those pages to under the Page Tree?



Thank you

Hi @Shah Baloch ,

you have to move them under the Homepage.

The easiest way for this is to open the "..." menu on one of the pages and then select "View in Page Hierarchy". Then you can drag and drop them under the Homepage.

For my case, the tree menu is not visible because I changed my Space name and Home page.


Space setting > edit home page to any top level of page tree.
