Please note that only members of UCL staff can create personal spaces.
Once you are logged on, you should see your name top right as a hyperlink on the UCL Wiki homepage. Click on this link.
On the page that appears, you should see a message saying *You can create a personal space to keep your own pages and news*. Click on the *create a personal space* hyperlink.
Now you need to set the viewing and editing rights for your space.
By default personal (and global) spaces are only viewable by the person concerned.
Note: _Registered users - anyone logged into Confluence_ has no effect in the UCL implementation of the software.
If you want all registered users to have access, you have to explicitly give access to group "ucl-all". ucl-staff, ucl-hon, ucl-ug and ucl-pg are other useful groups. For detailed information about UCL access groups, see: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/upi/web-users/intranet-groups
You can also create your own groups and add people to them by clicking on the *Manage Users/Groups* tab. It is better to use this feature, rather than granting permission to individuals, as it is a lot less work if you ever need to change the permissions in future.
It is not recommended that you tick _Anonymous - anyone, logged in or not_, as this would expose your space to mischievous comments from the unscrupulous.
The address of your space is:
To adjust who has what access to your space, click the *Browse Space* hyperlink top right and then the *Space Admin* tab. Click *Edit Permissions* under the relevant user category and tick the relevant boxes. Click *Save All*.

Do not save your pages too often, as this creates many versions.
Do not leave pages open in Edit mode for a long time, as this puts a heavy load on the server.
