Administering Site Templates

A template is a predefined page that can be used as a prototype when creating new pages. Templates can be created by users, or provided by a blueprints. See Page Templates and Blueprints

Administrators can import templates, to make them available to other people using Confluence. See Importing Templates.

Confluence also provides 'system templates' which contain default content for the site welcome message (see Editing the Site Welcome Message) and default space content (see Customizing Default Space Content).

Administrators can also disable templates and blueprints, to stop them appearing in the Create and Create Space dialogs anywhere in their Confluence site. 

To disable a template or blueprint across the entire Confluence site:

  • Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration
  • Choose Global Templates and Blueprints.
  • Choose Disable next to the template, page blueprint or space blueprint you wish to disable.

Administrators can re-enable these templates and blueprints at any time.
