The Home Page configured in Space Details in Space Admin is not being obeyed

No matter which page provided in the drop down menu of the Home Page configuration of Space Details in Space Admin, the setting is not obeyed.

The behavior is to bring up the Pages tab in Tree instead of navigating to the page specified in the Home Page setting.

Hi Rick,

It sounds like you've got "view space goes to browse space" enabled in the general Confluence administration screens.

If you log in to Confluence as an administrator and select Browse -> Confluence Admin -> General Configuration there's an option for "View Space Goes to Browse Space". If this option is ticked then you get the behaviour you describe, if this option is unticked then users clicking the link to a space should be taken to the page specified as the home page of that space.

Hope that helps,



That did the trick. Thank you.
