In Confluence, content is organised into spaces. There are two main types of space:
A space is an area within Confluence, containing your pages, blog posts and other content. You can think of each space as a sub-site, or mini-site, each with its own home page.
You can create a blank space or choose to use a space blueprint.
There is no limit to the number of site spaces you can create in Confluence.
Space Blueprints allow you to create common types of spaces, such as a team space or knowledge base, quickly and easily.
A space created using a space blueprint will have a customised homepage, sidebar and may contain page blueprints or sample content that is specific to that type of space.
When you create a space using a blueprint a wizard will prompt you to enter information to help set up your space. For example the Team Space blueprint asks for the members of your team, and displays them on the homepage.
Confluence displays a list of spaces in the following locations:
