How Does Confluence Compare with Other Publishing Options?
The Colby Wiki?
Your first view of the wiki will be the "Dashboard". The Dashboard is the front page of a Confluence site. It provides an overview of the site, access to all spaces to which you have access, and displays a list of the most recently updated content within them.
You can go to the Dashboard from any page on your site by clicking on the logo beside the page title or via the breadcrumbs located at the top of every page.
The Dashboard is the only place in Confluence from where you can:
- Access all existing spaces on the site
- Add a new space to the site
By default, the Dashboard is also the site homepage. However, you can set any other page in Confluence as your homepage by using "Space Admin" or "User Profile" settings. (See About Spaces)
