Overview

Panel boxes are useful to structure text on a Confluence page and are very easy to use. Confluence Administrators can configure a set of panel boxes in the Advanced Panelboxes app configuration.
The user then just picks a pre-defined box without having to deal with macro parameters and their values in order to match the cooperate design. These are advanced panel boxes, unlike the standard Confluence {panel} macro.

Panelbox Macro

The Panelbox Macro has the following advantages over standard Confluence panels:

  • The layout of the panel boxes are defined in the Advanced Panelboxes' configuration.
  • Only Confluence administrators have access to the Advanced Panelboxes' configuration.
  • In order to style a panel box, the author doesn't have to use any additional macro parameters.
  • More uniformity throughout the site. The user just chooses from a set of pre-defined panel boxes.
  • If the style of a panel box needs to be changed (for example, when the colour scheme of the cooperate design changes), those changes are made once in the app configuration. All the corresponding panel boxes are changed immediately throughout the whole Confluence instance without having to edit hundreds of pages.
  • The header of a panel box can not only contain normal text but also wiki syntax.
