This page tells you how to customize sections of the Enterprise Theme.

 

The layout of the Enterprise Theme is divided into multiple sections, where every section can be configured independently. Sections can be configured either globally or per space. If no space specific section has been configured, the section content configured globally will be displayed in all sections. The content of a section is defined as XHTML, the same markup as Confluence uses itself for content. This allows you to use the same macros and formatting features you already know for your section content.

Available Sections

HeaderThe header section is displayed above any page and blog content and uses the full width of the screen. By default, it contains the Metamenu macro to display the menu and language switcher.
Page Sidebar

The page sidebar section is displayed on the left side of any page content and only visible when visiting pages. By default, it contains the Spacelogo macro to display the logo of the current space, the Page Tree macro to display the navigation tree of the space, the Recently Updated macro to list recent blog posts and the Space Manager macro to see the responsible person for this space, if there is one configured.

Blog SidebarThe blog sidebar section is displayed on the left side of any blog content and only visible when visiting blog posts. By default, it contains the Spacelogo macro to display the logo of the current space, the Blognavigation macro to navigate blog posts, the Page Tree macro to display the navigation tree of the space, the Recently Updated macro to list recent blog posts and the Space Manager macro to see the responsible person for this space, if there is one configured.
Page BottomThe page bottom section is displayed at the bottom of any page content and only visible when visiting pages. By default, it contains the Labeleditor Box macro to display the label editor, the Comment Box macro to show comments and the Attachment Box macro to list any attachments of the page.
Blog BottomThe blog bottom section is displayed at the bottom of any blog content and only visible when visiting blog posts. By default, it contains the Labeleditor Box macro to display the label editor, the Comment Box macro to show comments and the Attachment Box macro to list any attachments of the blog post.
FooterThe footer section is displayed at the bottom and uses the full width of the screen. By default, it contains the Metamenu macro to display any footer entries.

 

Customize a section globally

 

Permissions

 In order to be able to access the global section configuration, a Confluence user must have the global Confluence Administrator permission.

 

To customize a section globally:

  1. Choose the cog icon , at top right of the screen, then choose General configuration (You need Admin rights to see the cog icon).
  2. Select Sections under Enterprise Theme in the left-hand panel. This will show you all the sections with their position visually to help you see where your changes will take effect.
  3. Click on any of the sections to customize this section's content.

 

Customize a section in a space

 

Permissions

In order to be able to access the space section configuration,  a Confluence user must have the Admin permission on that space.

 

To customize a section in a space:

  1. Go to the space in which you would like to customize the section.
  2. Navigate to the space administration. Please refer to the page Navigating to the Space Administration if you are unsure how to find it.
  3. Select Sections under Enterprise Theme. This will show you all the sections with their position visually to help you see where your changes will take effect.
  4. Click on the Edit button for any of the sections to customize this section's content.

 

Labels help you to see which sections have been customized globally or use some space specific content. You will either see one of the following labels:

GLOBAL The section currently uses the content configured globally.

CUSTOMIZED The content of the section has been customized for the current space and is different from the content configured globally.

Section Editor

To edit the content of a section you use the same editor as Confluence uses itself. This allows you to use the same macros and formatting features you already know for your section content.

Resetting sections

Once a section is customized, a Reset button will appear next to the Edit button for that section. Clicking on that button will remove the customization for this section and revert back

  • to the globally configured section content for space sections
  • to the default section content for global sections
