how to create a folder in a page space


I am new to confluence, working on getting the information to put together in our project created own space. I am able to create pages. Can someone guide me how do I create a different folder under page tree because the pages created have to go under different folders.    

Also please share if there is any useful guidance document to refer throughout to complete my work.

Appreciate your assistance!

Hi @Dhivya Rathinasamy Gunasekaran ,

there's nothing like a folder in Confluence. Just pages. 

A page can be something like a folder if its purpose is to have child pages.

A folder page should at least contain the "children" macro, so it is showing all the pages underneath and not just an empty page. 

Thanks for your reply. I checked "how do I add macro" section I don't see children macro instead I see following others

Hide children page 

child tab display 


Would you be able to share any user guide on how to add parent page and children pages. Thank you!
