Creating Spaces

The new Space Admin Browser allows to create new spaces. Therefore click on Content > New Space or use the new space button.

The popup window will ask for a name, a key and an optional space description. 

(warning) The fields are case sensitive. E.g. if the key gets typed in lower case, it will stay in lower case and won't get changed to upper case.

The new space will appear in the Space Admin Browser after it has been created. 

Copying Spaces

Copying a space is only possible when there was at least one space added to the Space Admin Browser.

After the selection the space can be copied by

  • clicking Edit and Copy
  • clicking the copy button

If just a subset of pages should be copied, the pages have to be selected to be copied individually. By default all pages will be copied.

It is also possible to copy pages from one or more spaces by selecting the pages with Ctrl+click. The selected pages will be highlighted in blue.

Choosing one of the above mentioned methods will open a popup configuration window.

Mandatory parameters are the name and a key for the new space. There will be a suggestion for a name made up of the original name and a suffix: (Copy).

Use the available options to configure what should be copied.
