How do I post news about a page?

You must be a space administrator (see the Browse > Space Admin link) to do this.
To watch your wiki space, go to Browse Space | Advanced | Start watching this space so you may be automatically notified of activity.

By default personal spaces are only viewable by the person concerned, and global spaces are only viewable by the administrators of the spaces 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 explicitly to give access to group ucl-all. ucl-staff, ucl-hon, ucl-ug and ucl-pg are other useful groups. Note the use of the role suffix (e.g. -all) after the hyphen; it would not work if you just used ucl. For detailed information about UCL access groups, see: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/upi/web-users/intranet-groups
You can add several individuals by typing in user ids separated by comma space.
Note that the create right is the one you use to give edit access and that you need to give the attach right to people who want to display images.
Do not give individuals or groups rights they do not need.
