Change the Look and Feel of a Space

You can customise the 'look and feel' of a space on your Confluence site through options available in the Space Administration menu. By default, the look and feel of a space is based on site-wide settings configured from the Administration Console.

You need to be a space administrator to change the look and feel of a space.

    New user. I created a personal space in which I am the administrator. I want to experiment with layout, but when I go into Space Admin (using Documentation theme) the Layout link is not listed. Thanks.

      Hi Deborah,

      When you choose the Documentation theme, the layout settings are disabled. If you choose the default theme, you should be able to access the layouts.

        Thanks, Giles. This page Customise Space Layouts says that Layout is available for the Documentation theme. However, I did miss the part where it says "Layout is displayed only if you are a Confluence system administrator."

        So if I want to alter the page decorations, I can't, even if I'm an admin of my own space?

          Hi Deborah,

          It's not about your access levels in this case; it's about the theme selected for the space. There seems to be an error in the doc on the page you mention, so I'll fix it up and add a note about this limitation in the Doc theme.

            Hi. I tried switching to the global theme, and had the same issue. I spoke with my admin and he said there is a bug in the latest version where, even in the global theme, the Layout is not available. He said he's reported the issue and is awaiting resolution.
