Applied changes to parent/child spaces in admin panel but not seeing it in dashboard


I have zen as my theme (just a heads up) and I just installed the subspace add on. I went ahead and sorted my spaces in the admin console but am not seeing the changes in the dashboard... Am I missing a step? In the marketplace one of the images show a shot of the dashboard with the parent spaces and the sub spaces.

Thanks for the help!

Hi Aaron,

i think the zen theme is using it's own macros to display things at the dashboad. The subspace plugin itself has a macro to display the spaces hierachically.

But as first you can try to activate the Dashboard Subspace List via the administration. Go to your "Confluence Admin" -> "Plugins" -> "Manage Existing" -> "Subspace Plugin" and activate the Module "Subspaces Dashboard Panel (CF 4)". This will show you the subspaces as a tabbed view on your dashboard. This view should work for most of the default dashboards. I don't know exactly if the Zen theme is showing these default entries as well.

This step is descripted in the subspace documentation.

As Second you can have a closer look to the zen dashboard administration. I think there is a possibility to insert some macro code for the dashboard. You can call the subspace macro that shows the hierachical spaces:


i hope that helped a little,
