Applying a Theme to a Space

Themes allow you to personalise the 'look and feel' of Confluence. You can apply a theme to your entire Confluence site or to individual spaces. Choose a specific theme if you want to add new functionality or significantly alter the appearance of Confluence.

Confluence comes with a selection of themes. In addition, a site administrator can install new themes as plugins via the Confluence Administration Console. Provided that the theme is installed into your Confluence site, any space administrator can apply a theme to a space.

By default when you create a new space, the space will have the Confluence default theme.

To apply a theme to a space:

  1. Go to the space and choose Space tools > Look and Feel on the sidebar.
    You'll need Space Admin permissions to do this. 
  2. Choose Themes and select a theme option.
  3. Choose Confirm

  2. Choose Themes from the space administration options
  3. Select a theme option.
  4. Choose Confirm.
