So far we've just been editing the page that came with your personal space. Probably you and the people you collaborate with will eventually want lots of pages covering many different topics.

To create a new page, first go back to your personal space if you're not already there. Then place your mouse cursor over the "Add" text in the upper right part of the window, and select "Page" from the menu that appears.

Enter a title for your page at the top of the window, then enter some text below. Remember, you can use either Rich Text or Wiki Markup mode to make your edits. When you're done, press Save.

Look at the top part of the window on the left side. You should see a series of links separated with tiny arrows. These links are called "breadcrumbs," and they should look something like this:

Dashboard > People > (your name) > Home > (the page you just created)

Notice that the page you just created is below the "Home" page that you edited earlier. It shows up that way because Confluence groups pages in terms of "parents" and "children." The Home page is the parent of the page you just created, and the page you just created is a child of the Home page. Confluence will always display a list of links like this one to help you navigate.

By default, a new page is the child of the page you were looking at when you pressed the Add button. You can move it around later, though, as we'll cover below.
