Join Sandra Toner for an in-depth discussion in this video Navigating content, part of Installing and Administering Atlassian Confluence.
Now that we've explored the spaces and pages within the wiki, let's take a quick look at how to navigate around the site. The dashboard is a great place to start because it's got a list of spaces and links to each space. We currently only have one space created, so let's check it out by clicking on the name of that space. You can use the URL or the sidebar to tell where you are in the space. The URL will always have a series of digits that identifies the space. This is called the space key.
It's always followed by the name of the page. The name of the page in the URL will match the title of the page. Within the sidebar, the name of the space will be at the top and the page hierarchy will be below it. As you can see here in the sidebar, pages reside within a space in a simple parent-child hierarchy. When you create a page, it becomes the child of the page you were on when you initiated the creation of the new page. The page we are currently on, is listed here in black. All of the pages listed below are child pages of the page that we are currently on.
In this example, our parent page, Welcome to Confluence, has several child pages. Three of them are listed in the navigation tree and six more are listed below. You can display all of the child pages by clicking on the six more child pages link. This will display all of the child pages for your current parent page. Let's take a look at one of the child pages for the Welcome to Confluence page. We can open up a child page by clicking on the link in the navigation tree. You can see here that in the sidebar the navigation tree has changed.
The parent page is the current page that we are on, What is Confluence, and there are no current child pages. You can also look at the breadcrumbs at the top of the page above the title. This will show you the parent page of the page you are currently on. If I want to go back one step to the previous parent page, I just have to follow the link above. In addition to the breadcrumbs and the sidebar within a space, Confluence also has advanced search options that we'll explore in greater detail in another video. Now that we can get around our site, let's figure out how to customize the logo and color scheme.
