Whether you're a beginner or an expert, our step-by-step guide will teach you how to move, copy, and reorder pages in Confluence Cloud

As a company evolves, how a team uses Confluence will change too. But you don't have to delete Confluence pages and rebuild them from scratch - it's easier to reorganise your spaces than you think.
Our guide shows you how to quickly move, duplicate, and reorder pages in Confluence Cloud - helping you to keep your Confluence instance tidy and easy for users to navigate.

How to move a Confluence page

  1. On a Confluence page, click the ellipsis button (...) in the top-right corner and select Move. A dialog box should appear.

  2. To move to the page to a new Confluence space, choose your new space in the Select space dropdown menu. If not, skip to step 3.

  3. Find your page in the Content box. Click and drag the page to move its location in your chosen space. You can even drag your page over another to nest it under that page.

  4. Click Move. That's it!

Can you bulk move multiple pages to a different Confluence space?

This is only possible when you move a parent page. If you move a parent page to a new space, all nested child pages will move with it. You'll be able to see that you're moving a parent page because it will mention "includes x children" in the Move dialog box (see below).

To simultaneously move several pages, you could nest them under a parent page, move them in bulk, and then reorder them in the new space. To make things even quicker, an app like Panorama for Confluence can do the hard work for you.

How to copy a Confluence page

It's easy to duplicate a page via Pages in a Confluence space sidebar. You can create copies within the same space or copy pages to a new space.

  1. In your Confluence space sidebar, scroll to Pages and find the page you want to copy.

  2. Hover over your page, click the ellipsis button (...), and click Copy. You should see a dialog box.

  3. Use the dropdown menus to choose a new space and/or select a parent page for your duplicate Confluence page. This is optional - skip to step 4 if you don't want to do either.

  4. Press Copy to be redirected to your duplicate page.

  5. Rename the page, press Publish, and you're done!

How to reorder Confluence pages

  1. In your Confluence space sidebar, click Space Settings, then Manage pages. You should land on the Reorder tab.

  2. Click on the arrow beside the space homepage to view your pages.

  3. Drag your Confluence page to a different position to reorder it. To nest a Confluence page, drag it on top of another page - the second page will become the parent.

That's it! Your Confluence page tree will automatically update, so there's no need to press a save button.
