The image below shows the menus and other controls on a typical Confluence page.

If your Confluence administrator has customised your Confluence site, the menus may appear in different positions from those shown here.

If you are not logged in to Confluence but anonymous access is available on your Confluence site, a 'Log In' link will appear instead of the 'User' menu.
