SubSpace Navigation for Confluence allows you to structure your Confluence by defining a central navigation so that your users find their way through the wiki.
All users with the global permission "Confluence Administrator" can administer the navigation. Initially, these are all members of groups with admin access. As an authorized user you will see a cog icon in the SubSpace Navigation. Click the icon on the right to edit the navigation.
