An orphaned page is a page without any incoming links. What this means is that unless you know that this page exists, you are not likely to come across it in the space during the natural course of navigation.
When you are working in a large space with a number of pages, it is difficult to keep track of all of them. An orphaned page may be redundant or need to be referred to from another page. Confluence allows you to view all the orphaned pages in a space so you can "tidy up" the space by either deleting pages or by reorganising them.
To view the orphaned pages in a space:
- Click on the 'Browse Space' link for the space. This is located at the top of every page and beside the space link on the dashboard.
- Go to the 'Advanced' tab and click on 'Orphaned Pages' from the left panel.
- delete an orphaned page by clicking on the 'trash' icon beside it.
- give an orphaned page a parent — see Changing Parent of a Page.
