Someone's unpublished draft created a ghost child page - how can I find that page and remove it?

I have a page that has a child dropdown but when I click on the dropdown, no page exists. I can recreate this situation by opening up an unpublished draft which creates a child dropdown carrot that in another browser I can see has nothing underneath it. When I delete the unpublished draft, that dropdown goes away. So how can I figure out who has an unpublished draft in my docs?

Hello @Arezou Seifpour ,

You can try to use REST API to get the DRAFTS:




It will show the drafts and you can further extract the history/author/etc. data


You can use API parameters to configure the results you need.

Has anyone translated that suggestion into English?  I have the same problem.  My categories have arrows as if there's something under them.  They should just be bulleted child pages.

Like Christopher Hopper likes this

You can see your unpublished drafts using the menu bar at the top of a Confluence page.

From the top menu bar

  1. Click on Recent to show recent pages you visited
  2. Under Recent, click on Drafts to show your recent draft pages
  3. At the bottom of that recent drafts list, click on View all drafts to show all the unpublished draft pages you have created

Unfortunately this does not show me the ghost draft page causing my Confluence menu to show an arrow instead of a disc. I have the same problem as the original post.

My solution was to recreate the page. I created a new page. I copied all the information from the old page. I then published the new page and deleted the old page that had the ghost child attached to it.
