With the new confluence layout, how can you change the global footer?


When we started with Jira and Confluence, it was possible to add a footer for all you space pages. This was accomplished by adding a _footer-page on the root of your space and you could then set up this page in the Look and Feel section of the space tools.

Now apparently we made a mistake in those days by linking a _footer page with another space. Now today we wanted to make that space public, but we get an error on autorization as the _footer page is in a space that isn't public.

So I wanted to change this to use the _footer page from his space and not the other space, but I can't find how I can do this in the new confluence.

Any help appreciated!

Kind regards,
