Why is move page not working?

I am attempting to move a page from one space to another.

When I click '...' -> Move on the page, the screen flickers gray then then nothing happens. No move page dialog comes up.

I am the administrator on both spaces (as well as all of confluence) and I even gave my user full permissions on the pages original space.

I feel like this is a bug. No error comes up.


Please advise how I may correct this. Thanks

Please let me know when this started, was there a recent upgrade or change to a reverse proxy that is in front of Confluence?

Please check the <confluence_home>/logs/atlassian-confluence.log for errors. (The <confluence_home> directory is the path defined in the following file: <confluence_install>/confluence/WEB-INF/classes/confluence-init.properties.) Search for the title of the page or your user name to help find the relevant errors. Another strategy is to reproduce the issue and immediately check the bottom of the log.

Please let me know what version of Confluence you are using and what browser. I did find some bugs about moving pages, but they are all old and fixed in early versions.

I just fixed it by upgrading confluence from 6.1 to most current version. Now the dialog displays correctly.

Thank you for your answer, however.

Happy to hear that you fixed it! Have a great weekend.

Hi, Robert,

Is this issue a bug under confluence 6.1.4?
